Microsoft Store and Photo disappeared from the Windows 10 device?

Hi Guys,

We have a user who has lost Microsoft Store and the Photos application. He claims he was able to use both the Microsoft Store and Photos yesterday but today both are not available on his device. I have tried rolling through back updates, Clearing Windows store cache, and using a PowerShell command none of them was helpful, and still, both applications are missing. I even roll back his PC to prior date using System Restore Point.

Microsoft Windows 10 issues are very common I hope someone already had this issue and figured out the solution for this. I appreciate if anyone shares any tips or suggestion



Start a PowerShell session as administrator and paste the following command and press Enter:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

You will see a lot of red but ride it out. When it’s done, you should be able to run those apps again.
