    Reinstall Windows App Store tile


    I seem to have mistakenly deleted the Windows App Store tile from my Windows 8 machine. I, of course, have looked under All Apps and it's not there.

    Does anyone know how to reinstall this app?

    Thanks!

    Hello dg, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    For now, you might see if this Store shortcut may work for you. You can pin it to the Start screen.
