    Store


    Is it just me or has the "store" changed. I now get a totally different screen (see attached) when I load it up and no apps at all in any of the sections.

    Still working 'normally' here. Have you added or changed any software recently?

    It looks like you may have been accessing the Store at the precise time Microsoft was doing some sort of update. I just went there myself, and although it looks the same, some things have changed. Some of the Top Free and Top Paid tiles no longer list anything, some do. Some of the apps that were in languages other than English, were removed. Even as I type and watch the Store they are slowly coming back online.

    Never saw an update in progress before...Cool!!!
