How to restore missing Microsoft Store app in Windows 10 build 17110

Last night’s Windows 10 build shipped with an irritating bug for some. Upon installation of the update, users discovered that the Microsoft store was rendered inaccessible, and attempting to fix the issue manually would only exacerbate the problem.

A user on the Microsoft Answers forum has come up with a solution to the problem, but you’ll have to delve into PowerShell to do it.

Here’s how to fix it:

  1. Launch PowerShell as admin by pressing Windows key + X or right-clicking on the Start Button and selecting the relevant option.
  2. Once powershell is open, copy and paste the following – Get-AppXPackage *WindowsStore* -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
  3. Restart your PC. The Microsoft Store should now be accessible once more.

Give it a try, and let us know how it works in the comments below.
