      Why do you need to get rid of it?  Can’t remove, uninstall, or reinstall Microsoft Store app – Windows Client | Microsoft Docs

      As using powershell to remove it can cause issues with the operating system.  What’s the problem you are trying to solve?

        It keeps overlaying adds which I have to delete to get on with what I’m trying to do. ??????

            I’m a real novice but let us see if that fix will stop me pulling my hair out. Thanks to everyone, but most of what you all say, I have to admire but goes right over my head.

              It is possible to get rid of all ads and most other marketing fluff from Microsoft.  So if there are any other irritations with Microsoft let us know the specifics in a new topic.  Most ads can be stripped from browsers as well.

              Thanks for that, but how do I do that?

        • #2468903

          Can you take a screen shot?  Are you sure it’s the store popping ads and not something in your browser doing it?

            I can’t get my screenshot over to this reply. So I’ll tel you what what it looks like. top l/h corner has a SCAN GUARD simbel.
            Then in large letters. YOUR COMPUTER IS NOT PROTECTED.
            under that FIRWALL
            MALWEAR etc.
            SYSTEM
            SPYWEAR

            and at the very bottom “Prepaired by PC App Store etc.”

            I must admit it does’nt say Microsoft Store.

        Susan, I have the opposite problem. Microsoft Store will not open on my computer. Is there a safe way for a novice to correct this or should I have tech repair expert handle this. I am moderately advanced with most things on my Widows 10 home machine but I never like to go into the registry. Thanks for all your good work.

      Keep Microsoft Store as it provides a means to acquire software.

        I keep it as a means to patch embedded software, not necessarily to acquire it.

          MS Store should not be removed, as patches have been distributed for flaws/bugs in the embedded software and also breaks the OS integrity if removed now.
          So unless you like re-installing from scratch, it’s a definite no no

          OP could try PS as admin, whilst connected online:

          DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

          to see if that re-Stores as the OS has moved on since that MS doc was published 09/23/2021. Lots of water under the bridge since then.

      This software, 10AppsManager, installs or uninstalls preinstalled Windows apps:
      https://www.thewindowsclub.com/10appsmanager-windows-10

      10apps

      Reinstall button installs all apps including the “Store” app.

      Use with caution.

      @sb has indicated and @microfix has stated that “MS Store should not be removed, as patches have been distributed for flaws/bugs in the embedded software and also breaks the OS integrity if removed now.”

      I provided a way to reinstall the Store app using 10AppsManager.

        Have you uninstalled/reinstalled the MS Store using 10AppsManager, and can personally say it works without issue?
        Does it just remove/disappear the Apps locally, or does it deprovision the Apps so they don’t come back if you create a new user? The linked article doesn’t make this clear.
        (HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\AppsAllUserStore\Deprovisioned)
        Is the App being currently maintained? The linked article is two years old and many of the listed Apps are no longer installed Apps (3D Builder, Food, Get Skype, etc, etc).

        • #2468770

          This 10AppsManager will no longer install Microsoft applications including Microsoft Store.

          To re-register Microsoft Store for all users:

          • Open an elevated PowerShell prompt
          • Type:
            Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers *WindowsStore* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

      IMO there’s two issues – one is HOW one removes the Microsoft Store (which, IMO, would be really silly) and the other is Microsoft nomenclature, i.e. the differences (if any) between remove, delete and uninstall (and possibly deprovision).

      Then there’s the fun of differentiating between an installed app and an advertised app… and whether it’s per-machine (i.e. system-wide) vs per-user.

      For the first issue, there’s a big diffence between not making the Microsoft Store *visible/accessible* from an account versus actually removing/deleting/uninstalling all traces of it.

      Hence why removing/deleting/uninstalling the Microsoft Store in Audit mode during OOBE (e.g. using Windows 10 Decrapifier) is usually irreversible. I know… I tried several experiments but have still not yet read a successful way back from this, as opposed to third-party apps just obfuscating access in the same way as adding/removing Windows Features.

      I would advise against even trying it… but if you do go ahead and then need help, please be upfront about what you’ve done. I suspect the advice will be to clean install.

      Hope this helps…
