can't see featured apps in windows store

There are some annoying issues with the Windows Store for Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows RT users and one of the most present is the fact that featured apps don’t appear for some. Here are some potential fixes.

can't see featured apps in windows store

The Windows Store is an awesome addition in Windows 8 and proves just how efficient Microsoft’s strategy has been. But, just like many new products, it has issue or things that must be fixed from the user side. If you are aware, there wasn’t a single iPhone launch, for instance, that didn’t have issues. While that might be frustrating for the user, one must realize that this is natural to happen. But are users indulgent enough?

Issue with featured apps in the Window Store

I’ve just finished solving my issue with the fact that I wasn’t seeing too many apps in the Windows Store. I’ve managed to find some very, very basic solutions to fix the issue. Activating and displaying all apps in the Windows Store was pretty easy. Now, if you are opening the Windows Store and you don’t see featured applications like in the above picture, then it probably means you’re having the same issue I had.

There’s no solution for it to work, but if you have followed my article about how you need to change localization settings, then probably, all you’ll need to do is to perform a restart and see the featured apps appear. This is not a big issue, rather a “cosmetical” one, but it gives you the feeling that the Windows Store is a desert when nothing grows, it’s quite ugly, to be frank.

So, what you need to do is to perform those change and wait for the featured apps to appear. I can’t imagine another reason for why it might not work. I even asked Paul Thurrot, the manager of WinSuperSite, a well-known authority in matter of Windows subjects and he said “I’m guessing that not all apps appear in all markets”. So, if you “trick” your computer into thinking he’s in USA, that should do it.
