    Windows 8 Store


    Hi been using Windows 8 for a while now and noticed that
    in the games section in Windows 8 store that the game
    Cut The Rope has gone. I am sure it was there before?
    i had to reinstall Windows 8 a while back and this was
    when i could not find it when i came to download some
    apps again. Has any one else noticed this? Where has
    it gone to? Is it missing or still there and maybe i can't
    see it for some reason?

    Hello Andre, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    "Cut The Rope" is still in the Store. While you have the Store open, you could open Search from the charm bar and do a search for that app's name like below to help find it easier.

    Windows Store - Search for Apps

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Also, when you're in the store right click the screen and at the top you get the option for "Your Apps". This will list the Apps you've downloaded before and you should see Cut the Rope on the list which you can click to re-install.

    (Option One)
    Apps - Install Metro Apps from Windows 8 Store

    How about with what Rob posted?

    In addition, check to make sure that you have app localization disabled. It may be hiding the app if it's not for your locale.

    That would explain why it's not showing up in "Your apps". Are you able to use the tutorial below to sign in to the Store with the old Microsoft account that used the other email address (if still valid)? Afterward, see if the app is listed to install.

    Worse case, you should be able to refresh Windows 8, then go to the Apps screen to pin these Store apps back to the Start screen.

    (step 3 Option Two)
    Start Screen - Pin or Unpin App, Folder, or Drive in Windows 8

    HI I have managed to now re download apps that i previously installed by going to My Apps Thank You. However when i goto the store many apps that was there before like the Tune In App are no longer there. Why is this?
    I was able to redownload this as i previously had installed this at an earlier date and had to re install Windows 8 recently.
    I am in the UK
