  • Win10 Fall Creators Update Store problems appear to be solved

    Well I’ll be…

    I bumped into Günter Born’s article this morning, saying that the “Something bad happened” bug has been fixed. Flipped over to my 1709 machine and, sure enough, as soon as I clicked on the “Store” icon, it updated itself.

    I now have a new icon in the taskbar – more colorful than the old one – and the store now identifies itself as “Microsoft Store.”

    That’s the difference between updating through Windows Update (where you can control things) and updating through the Store.
