    Default Windows Store apps not opening in Windows 10

    If Windows Store apps not opening in Windows 10, after you upgraded from Windows 8.1 / 7 then this post will show you how to fix the problem quickly.

    You will have to re-register the Windows Store apps. To do this, type the following in a elevated PowerShell window and hit Enter:

    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Hope this helps.

    See this post if Windows Store itself is not working in Windows 10.

    I tried MANY different solutions, including multiple powershell commands and none worked, but this did the trick! Thank you!

    Debbie:

    Type powershell in taskbar search.

    In the result 'Windows PowerShell' that appear, right-click on it and select Run as administrator.

    Now in this blue PowerShell window, copy-paste the above code and hit Enter.

    My problem is that store won't upgrade. I tried the Powershell command run as admin, and got this:
    HRESULT: 0X80073D02, The package could not be installed because resources it modifies are currently in use.
    error: 0x80004004: Unable to install because the following apps need to be closed
    Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyew y!App.
    etc.

    It is likely you are on an non-elevated powershell. Go to start menu. TYpe PowerShell. Then right click on PowerShell and run as Administartor. YOu should not have the error anymore.
