  • Make sure your Date and Time are rightly synchronized. If required you need to update internet timing settings.

    click start, search start but typing 'wsreset' (without quotes).

    Navigate your File Explorer to the following directory:

    C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe\

    Once here, delete the Local Cache folder and try launching the Windows Store again.
