been going great. Then one day, Acrodisc(R) syringe


you suddenly see a list of apps
filters
queued up in the Windows Store
₹ 28,990
waiting to update and stuck in the Sigma­Aldrich
"pending" state.

Microsoft said this morning that


they have fixed the Store issues,
although some users are still
experiencing them. If you fall into
that camp, you will want to read on
for a possible fix!

The natural reaction probably is to


close and reopen the Store or to
reboot your computer when that
doesn't work. But if you are like

the next step is to log out of the
Windows Store and then log in
again with your Microsoft account.

Log off
1. Open the Windows Store app

2. Click on the account logo in


the upper-right corner of the
app, then click on your
account name

3. Click on you account name in


the new box, then click Sign
out

4. Click on the icon in the


upper-right corner again,
then click Sign in and choose
your account name again

Reset the Store


Cache
If that does not get the Store
working again, close out of the app,
then try resetting the Store cache:

1. Click Start, then type


"wsreset" and select wsreset

2. When the Store app opens,


see if your downloads are
working

Troubleshoot
Windows Update
If resetting the Store cache doesn't
fix it, the next thing to try is
troubleshooting Windows Update,
which is closely ties to the
Windows Store:

Get Google Domain & Email

3. Under System and Security,


click on Fix problems with
Windows Update

4. Follow the prompts, then test


out the Store app

Reset Windows
Update (Caution)
The final thing that you can do to
get the Store working again is to
reset Windows Update completely.
And before proceeding, you should
be warned that messing around
with Windows system files can
lead to problems, so do this at your
own risk:

1. Click Start, then type


"services" and select the
Services desktop app

2. Find the Windows Update


service, right-click on it, then
select Stop

3. Next, open File Explorer and


navigate to the C:\Windows
directory

4. Right-click on the
SoftwareDistribution folder,
then rename it to
SoftwareDistribution.OLD or
any name of your choosing

5. Go back to the Services app


and restart the Windows
Update service

6. Test your Store downloads

This final step is the one that


ultimately worked for me, but it is a

If the final solution didnt work for


you, go into properties on the

I tried numerous "fixes" from this

worked a treat.  I am really

simply not working (you have to dig
deep to find out that this is also a
0x80240024 error) is by no means

I FIXED THE PROBLEM NOW. One of


the first things i did when getting
my laptop was turning off automatic
updates. after i saw the problem i
did a system restore, that fixed it
temporarily but the problem came
back. but after turning on automatic
updates and updating my computer
and restarting the store works fine
now.

this might not help everybody, but


hopefully some.

Got to be honest...these are the kind


of problems that make average
users go mad and talk about buying
a Mac. Windows 10 needs to be
more than good looks and
functionality, it needs to be rock-
solid for eveyone. Sure, an iPad is a
simpler and far less functional
device than say a Surface 3, but if it's
problem-free it's a winner in this day
and age. Windows has a bad rep
(not for the vast majority of users of
course) for being unstable, clunky
and difficult at times and while I'm
the sort of person happy to
troubleshoot, the current generation
of gadget buyers want a simple,
non-nonsense experience. It's the
secret of Apple's success, really; you
can do so much with a Mac (most
lack the processing chops to provide
a really good gaming experience, for
example) but people are generally
far less demanding of their
computers these days so they want
something that "just works" without
the need to tinker. I sympathise with
this and while I couldn't live with a
Mac once it came to my video and
gaming needs, I would be furious if I
upgraded to Windows 10 and found
I couldn't access the app store.
Patience levels among consumers
are low these days and if something
doesn't work properly out of the box
people are happy to return items
and get something else. Tablet Mode
on my Surface 3 is a pedestrian,
glitchy, nightmare whenever I

hitting Microsoft with for a decade

of your account. Log into the new
admin account. It will force the store
to update. When it loads the first
time, it will most likely be completely
blank. Wait about 10 minutes, then
log out and then reboot the
computer. Log back into the new
admin account. Some of the apps
should start appearing. When u see
the store show up click it and let the
default apps update. After that
done, logout, and back in with ur
regular account. And the store
should be fixed.

resume one by one.. If updates are
set to manual.

I had this issue last week. Seems i


solved the issue by cancelling the
downloads and pending updates,
closed store, then wsreset as admin
followed by reboot.

How to make the store


update/download apps one at a
time (Manage the queue properly)
instead of multiple
updates/downloads at a time ?????

The best way to do that would


probably be to disable automatic
app updates.

Go to
C:>users>user_name>AppData>Loca
l>Packages>Microsoft.WindowsStore

Delete all the files and folders in
there, problem solved."
I tried it and it worked immediately.
