It happens a lot that we open an app one day and find it corrupted somehow – the app keeps crashing, you’re unable to start it, or the app becomes unresponsive for no apparent reason. Other issues you may face with an app are problems trying to connect or sync content with a particular cloud service. In fact, it is not tough to take care of in Windows 10, provided that proper solutions are adopted. Let’s see what you can do to get rid of the trouble.

2. Search for “Microsoft Store”, and click the top result to open the experience.
3. click the three-dotted menu button in the top-right corner, and select Downloads and updates.
