Almost all users remove all application packages in Windows 10 because they are not useful and are practically of no use on a computer with a mouse and keyboard. You can remove all bundled apps at the same time as we have seen before. Or you can remove apps individually. If you remove all applications and lose good applications in the Windows Store, you may not be able to reinstall new applications. I will show you how to restore and reinstall the Windows Store in Windows 10 after removing it with PowerShell. To restore and reinstall the Windows Store in Windows 10 after removing it with PowerShell, you need to Must do the following:
- Run PowerShell as Administrator.
Open the Start menu (press the Win key on the keyboard) and type Powershell. When it comes up in the search results, right click on it and select “Run as administrator”. Or you can also press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open it as an administrator. Opening PowerShell as administrator is important, otherwise the commands you run will fail:
2. Type the following command in the PowerShell console:
3. In the screen that appears, locate the Microsoft.WindowsStore item. It’s at the bottom. Look for the words PackageFamilyName. Then run this PowerShell command, replacing ****** with PackageFileName from above:
Add-AppxPackage -register “C: \ Program Files \ WindowsApps \ ****** \ AppxManifest.xml” -DisableDevelopmentMode
For example, in my case it should be:
Add-AppxPackage -register “C: \ Program Files \ WindowsApps \ Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe \ AppxManifest.xml” -DisableDevelopmentMode
This will reset the Store app. You can then install new applications that you really need like games without having to go through useless pre-installed applications.
If you get the “access denied” error or something like that, you might need to exercise ownership of the WindowsApps folder
