      When I access windows update there’s a paragraph top right headed ‘see what’s new’ with an invite link headed ‘explore new features’.
      When I click on this I get the response ‘you’ll need a new app to open this ms-get-started link’
      with an ok button that does nothing.
      Can anyone shed any light as to what’s going on? Why invite me to see what’s new when I can’t see it?

      What version of Win10? 1903? 1809? 1803?

      When you click ‘see what’s new’ > Explore new features link, click ’Look for an app in the Microsoft Store’ to activate the OK tab > OK.

      In the opening Window, click the MS Tips app icon > Install.
      You can click ‘Launch’ to see what’s on offer, or return back to the Explore new features link and experiment with what you now see.

      I’m using v1903.
      Thanks for the video moonshine, but my pop up window merely tells me I need a new app, it doesn’t mention the app store and the ‘OK’ button does nothing.
      If I recall correctly I’ve disconnected the app store, could this be affecting my result?

        The AppStore is one of the built-in apps that they recommend NOT to remove.
        That is probably your problem. If it’s saying you need a new app, you need to be able to access the AppStore to get it.

      Thanks PKCano, got me using Power Shell and I got to reset all Store Apps that had gone missing.
