How to reinstall news app

  1. #11


    But I am trying to avoid creating a Microsoft account. I just want one local account that is administrator that has the news app installed.

    If you just wanted a local account, then that's fine to do what you posted as well.

    Just remember that without being signed in with a Microsoft account, you will not be able to use the Store and any modern apps that use a Microsoft service.

    The News app came with Windows when I installed it and didn't have to use the store. This is why I am avoiding using the store to reinstall it.

    No problem. Were you able to get it setup how you wanted?

    I got it working. I ran PowerShell ad administrator. At first I was trying to type both lines at once. Also I needed to work out the file path to the xml file. Here it is for anyone else trying to do this. Thanks again for your help.
    Type this first:
    $manifestpath = (get-appxpackage -Name "*Microsoft.BingNews*").InstallLocation + "\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.BingNews_3.0.1.321_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\Appxmanifest.xml"

    Then type this:
    Add-AppxPackage -register $manifestpath -DisableDevelopmentMode
