How to Clear Windows Store Cache in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
If you are having issues with installing or updating Store apps in windows 8, it may be caused by an issue with the Store cache.

1. Press the Windows+R keys on your keyboard to open the Run dialog.​

3. In Windows 8 and Windows RT, the Store will now open, and state the following: The cache for the store was cleared. You can now browse the store for apps.

11. Close Registry Editor and the elevated command prompt.​
12. Restart the computer to apply.​




That's it.
