    Windows 8 apps not updating.. stuck on pending


    Re-installed Windows 8 along side Windows 7 (because I can) and seem to be having issue with the updates of the default Windows 8 apps included with Windows 8. Says it's pending, but nothing is happening. These apps are for News, Finance etc etc. Pretty much all the default windows 8 modern apps.

    Any ideas?

    Hello GhostDog,

    You might see if clearing the Store cache may be able to help.

    Hope this helps.
