Windows Store update fixes Edge extension download issue

2 minute read

Microsoft just pushed a new update for the Windows 10 Store. The update is a minor one and contains just one bug fix without any additional performance improvements. This update for the Windows Store fixes the problem with ownloading Edge extensions and brings the Store version to 11607.1001.51.0.

We’ve released an update to the Store to fix errors when downloading extensions―let us know if you continue to have issues after updating.

Redmond immediately released this update to regular users without having it tested in Windows 10 Preview first. But that’s not surprising at all since the update fixes just one issue, so there’s no need to pay that much attention to it.

Although the update fixes just one problem, that problem was indeed very annoying. Recently, a high number of complaints about issues when installing Edge extensions were delivered to Microsoft’s address. The company quickly acknowledged the issue and as we can see, the fix has been released.

Microsoft introduced extensions for Microsoft Edge with the Anniversary Update after a few months of testing in Windows 10 Preview. This feature was very welcomed by users but apparently, things weren’t as smooth as expected for everyone. Hopefully, this update will solve every problem so users won’t have to deal with extensions installation issues anymore.

The update is probably already installed on your computer by now but in case it isn’t, go to the Store and check for updates. Or, you can manually download the latest version of the Windows Store from this link.
