    Windows 8 Store Not connecting


    My internet is working perfect and every other app is working just fine but this app refuses to load. I have tried reseting, updating, about everything in the book and still no signs of progress. Anyone have any idea how to fix this? Also maps refuses to find locations even when i type them in!

    Hello Con, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The Store is currently loading for me, but it may be overloaded at the moment, and you may need to try again later when it's not as busy.

    You might also see if the troubleshooting steps in the tutorial below may be able to help.

    Is your internet connection working otherwise?

    Double check your network connections and settings to make sure that they are all setup properly for your network.

    Any one know of app settings in control panel? Is it possible to reinstall the app store? As in full remove it and all its contents then reinstall. Or would it be a PC refresh?

    Hello Lucas,

    That would need a refresh or reset of Windows 8.

    Refresh Windows 8

    or

    Reset Windows 8
