I used to deinstall, when I set up a new Windows 8 installation, every App via Powershell by this command:

Get-AppxPackage | Remove-AppxPackage

It removed any Apps except some very basic ones e.g. the Store App itself.

In Windows 10, however, this command seems to remove also the Store App. My question is how I can get it back. In the browser store page there is no reaction when I click on an App to install. And the store itself can't be found.

I know that there is the command Get-AppxPackage <packagename> but I don't know it for the store itself.

Can anybody help me with this?


Run Powershell as an Administrator

Within Powershell run Get-Appxpackage –Allusers Find the entry for Microsoft.WindowsStore and copy the PackageFullName.

Run Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.8.25.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode but replace the item in quotes with the PackageFullName you copied in the previous step.
