@dre76fixitproper But I can't even do step 1 because I don't have the xbox app. To get it, you need the microsoft store app.

You're A LIFESAVER!!! I had uninstalled the Xbox app since I wasn't a gamer so I had to re-download it via a link provided by someone here in the feed (Thanks pal!!). And yep, the Xbox app fixed it. It is a shame that something so critical to the Operating system isn't easily fixable within windows but has to jump through loops.

OMG, this actually fixed a host of issues I've been having after the Windows 11 upgrade, including the basic Windows apps. I've spent months trying online fixes as well as my own ideas. This fixed EVERYTHING!
I read documention in, I believe, Windows 10 that if you disabled Xbox it would cause other apps to fail or disappear... the jerks at Microsoft made it so app features failed without Xbox being active... I'm probably stating that poorly. I will have to find that old documentation and post it.
Thank you dre76fixitproper, this was genius. The parallel between Xbox and app failures forces users to have the Xbox app installed.

In my case, I didnt even HAVE xbox app, however, through another forum post I found it here.
If you lost the store and xbox app for whatever reason, you can reinstall the xbox app directly which should then move you to this solution which forces the store app.

This is so wild! I got a brand-new computer that runs windows 11. It did not have the Microsoft app store on it at all. I have been looking online for over a week to fix this and your solution worked. Thank you so much for sharing. It saved me a lot of troubles.:smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I have spent 16 hours going through multiple "fix actions" with no success, thank you for your help!! Absolute Legend!

Thank you so much for your kind words. Having reinstalled Windows without any success, I started to get really confused as to why this wasn't resolved after reinstalling.

I dont leave feedback because normally I feel stupid and it is a basic fix. I Dont use XBOX so why have it installed on the computer? I bought a brand new computer and rather than having and OEM install it was a prebuilt and i went about removing all the things i didnt need/want. Turns out I was wrong, and after running system checks, repairs and even trying to load on the browser , the MS Store would not load. This immediately fixed it. Thank You!!!!@dre76fixitproper
