    Windows app store link


    I upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1, and now I can't access the Windows app store. When I click on the tile, it flashes once and then my desktop opens (I have Start8 installed). Never had this issue before.

    Any suggestions?

    Go to the "all apps" view and (right click) try to unpin the current Store Icon.
    Try to repin it and see if that works.
    Uninstall Start 8 just to see if that fixes your issue.
    Reinstall Start 8 if not.

    If you've tried all that already, please ignore.

    I found this solution, which worked. Run the following in a Command Window to re-register the Store app:
    powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml
