You hop into your Microsoft Store that’s on your Windows 10 computer and you click on the Get button on an app that you want to download.
Weirdly, you find that there’s some kind an of unusual bug where the whole page refreshes when you try to download the app and as soon as it refreshes you’re brought back to clicking on the Get button again.
Kind of like a refresh loop.
In this guide, I’ll show you how you can fix that Microsoft Store refresh loop on your Windows 10 in less than 5 minutes of your time. 🙂
How to Fix Microsoft Store Refresh Loop on Windows 10: 3 Ways
1. Try Resetting Your Microsoft Store.
The very first thing you should do is to try resetting your Microsoft Store.
Make sure your Microsoft Store isn’t open.
Here’s how you reset your Microsoft Store:
Step 1: Go ahead click on your Search Windows button on your Windows 10. (it’s the one which looks like a magnifying glass to your bottom left hand corner).
Step 2: Next, search for “Run“. Once you find it, click on Run.
Step 3: Finally, all that you have to do is just copy and paste this:
into the search bar. Then just hit OK.
Good. Now you’ll see that the window will close on its own (might take 5-10 minutes), then it’ll open back up your Microsoft Store app.
You can test to see if the Microsoft Store refresh loop has been fixed.
If it works, great! However, if you see the refresh loop makes it way back again then …
2. Uninstall and Reinstall the App.
If you’ve already tried resetting the Microsoft Store but you find that Refresh Loop even at first for fixed manages to come bak to haunt you again, then a nifty uninstall-reinstall of the app might just do to fix it.
Here’s how you can uninstall and reinstall the Microsoft Store app.
Step 1: Go ahead open up your Settings (you can do this by searching again on your Windows 10 using the magnifying glass-like icon to your bottom left hand corner).
Step 2: Next, jump into Apps.
Step 3: Now you’ll see couple of your apps in the list. Just select Microsoft Store and then click Advanced Options.
Step 4: Finally, on the new page do you see Reset? (You might need to scroll down a little) Good. Click on the Reset button.
Done. This will uninstall and reinstall back your Microsoft Store app on your Windows 10 computer.
You can try again to see if the annoying refresh loop has been fixed.
3. Signing Out of the Store.
If none of the above works, then there’s still one final trick that you can do, and it should once and for all fix the Refresh loop on your Windows 10.
So what is this final trick that you speak of?
This final trick is to … sign out of your Microsoft Store.
Just try it and see. Here’s how.
Step 1: Jump into your Microsoft Store and click on your profile picture (which is to your top right hand corner right next your search bar)
Step 2: See it? Awesome. Now select to Sign Out.
Step 3: Now immediately after, go ahead and try to download an app (it can be any app). You will find that it will ask you to sign in and enter your PIN. Then you’ll also need to enter your password to verify it’s really you because who knows? It could be your doppelgänger from China trying to steal your Candy Crush high score.
That’s pretty much it.
This should fix the Microsoft Store refresh loop once and for all and you will be able to download your apps like you’re used to.
