2 Way On How to Fix Windows Store Problems In Windows 10

While we love the fact that Windows 10 offers a new Store app with universal apps, you will agree when we say that it isn’t the most smooth offering from Microsoft. There are numerous complaints regarding the Windows 10 Store (and Windows 10 too) and thus, we have taken it upon ourselves to solve the Windows Store issues. Firstly, here are a few problems you might be facing with the Windows 10 Store:

  • Downloads stuck at “working” (error 0x80248014)

  • No Install button in Windows Store apps

  • Downloads not getting started (error 0x800704C6 or 0x80072EE2)

  • Windows Store not opening or crashing on launch

  • If you have been facing one of these issues, we have some good news for you. Here are a few steps you need to take to fix up the Windows 10 Store issues:

    1. Turn off Windows Firewall

      If your Windows 10 Store downloads are stuck at the “working” message, turning off Windows Firewall should fix things up. Here’s how to turn off Windows Firewall:

      • Go to Start or Cortana and search for “Firewall” and then, click on “Windows Firewall”.

      • Here, click on the “Turn Firewall on or off” option in the left bar.

      • In this section, turn off Windows Firewall for both private and public network settings.

      After you are done, try and install an app on the Windows Store and things should work out fine. Also, if you have Windows Defender or any third party antivirus suite installed on your PC, disabling them might be a good idea.

    2. Troubleshoot Windows Update and Windows Store

      Don’t see a “Install” button in Windows Store on your Windows 10 PC? Well, we have been there! You will have to troubleshoot problems to fix things up. Since Microsoft’s Windows Update service is integrated within the Windows Store, problems in it can cause problems with the Store. Thus, you will have to troubleshoot Windows Update as well. Here’s how to do it:

      • To start troubleshooting, go to Cortana and search for “troubleshoot” and click on the Control Panel result.

      • In the “Troubleshooting” page, click on the option to “View All” in the left panel, which lists down all the Troubleshooting packs.

      • Here, scroll down to the end to find the Windows Update troubleshooter, as well as the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter.

      • Run both of them and select “Try troubleshooting as an Administrator” when the prompt comes up and the troubleshooter should be able to fix whatever problems plague your Windows Store.

        Once done, restart your PC and Windows Store apps should feature the install button.
