Solution 1 – Reset Windows Store

Resetting Windows Store is probably the most common solution for this problem and I hope it will help you as well. Resetting the Store is very simple and all you need to do is this:

  1. Go Search, type run and open Run
  2. In the Run box type exe and hit Enter

This command will reset your Windows Store and hopefully, you’ll be able to download and use your apps again.

Solution 2 – Check if your region and time are right

Your Windows Store is tightly connected with your region settings. So you should go and check if everything is okay with it. This especially applies if you’re from one of the countries where Cortana is not available, so you had to change your region to use it. So to check if your region is okay, go to Settings > Time and language and check your region under Region and language. Just in case, do the same thing for Date & time, and after you make everything right in these sections, your Window Store should work normally again.

If you can access you Windows Store, but cannot download any apps, try to stop the downloading queue and try again, because some users reported that this worked for them.
