    Cannot Install or Update Apps from Windows Store

    Within the last week, the Windows Store has been giving me issues with installing new apps, or updating existing apps. I've rolled back my system to before this issue began, but the issue is still presenting itself.

    Whenever I try to install or update an app, I'm met with the following notice: "Something happened and this app couldn't be installed. Please try again. Error code 0x80072efd."

    I'm not having any luck finding solutions through Google searches. I ran the Windows Update Diagnostic and it seemed to find, and subsequently repair some issue but whatever it fixed did nothing for my Windows Store error.

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance!

Update the apps of Windows Store for all users
Hi It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this? Thanks Bye
