    Hello Robin, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Sorry, but you will not be able to use the Store or any Store apps while signed in to an elevated account like the built-in "elevated" Administrator account.

    You'll need to use a normal local or Microsoft account that is either a standard or administrator type of account instead to be able to do so.
