I personally like to use the Repair option first, then check to see if the problem has been solved. If it hasn’t worked, I will use the Reset option. However you can try whatever option you want first, there’s no correct order. To run either of these tools do the following:

  • Press the Windows Key + I to open Settings.
  • Next, go to Apps > Apps & Features, then scroll down until you get to the Microsoft Store entry.
  • Now click the three dots to the right and select Advanced Options.
  • Finally, scroll down and click Repair or Reset.
