Windows Store Error – Try That Again – Something Happened on Our End
As I went to launch the Windows Store app today, I encountered an error I’d never seen before. Here’s what I saw:
My first instinct was to see if there were any new updates available for Windows, just in case. I quickly confirmed that I was fully up-to-date, and began to ponder what else I could check. To be safe, I verified that I could successfully log into the Microsoft website, just to confirm that I wasn’t having any authentication issues.
When these attempts failed to resolve the problem, I took to Google to try and find a solution. Unfortunately, most of the articles I found simply didn’t solve my problem. Ultimately, I figured it out, so I’m sharing my solution below.
Here’s what I did to fix the Windows Store error:
- I clicked the Windows start button.
- I typed “Troubleshoot” and pressed Enter.
- When the “Settings – Troubleshoot” dialog appeared, I scrolled all the way to the bottom, and clicked”Windows Store Apps.” I then pressed “Run the troubleshooter.”
- When the “Reset and open Windows Store” dialog appeared, I clicked the”Reset and open Windows Store” option.
After a while, the troubleshooter finished doing its thing, and Windows Store opened successfully in the background. (In my case, the troubleshooting app also said it couldn’t fix a cache issue, but since it didn’t impact my ability to use the Windows Store app, I didn’t bother look for a solution to that particular issue.)
