I don’t use Windows Store apps often, actually I don’t use them at all. I just like when the default MSN Weather compactly is present in the Start menu and shows current location’s temperature. Just for fun.
But recently I ran into a frustrating issue when all Store Apps (including the Store itself) constantly minimize to taskbar immediately after the launch.
What I’ve tried and it didn’t help:
- Explicitly turn off the GPO which disallows Windows Store apps
- Grant Read permissions to
ALL APPLICATION PACKAGESon
powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppManifest.xml
((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:SOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionAppxAppxAllUserStoreInboxApplications") | Get-ItemProperty).Path | Add-AppxPackage - Register -DisableDevelopmentMode
- Copy from another user’s
What actually helped:
wsresetfrom elevated console
- Reinstall the app
