How To Fix Microsoft Store Refresh Loop On Windows 10

A recent bug in the Microsoft Store causes the app to refresh infinitely. In this article, we teach you how to fix the Microsoft Store refresh loop on Windows 10.

For example, you go to download an app. The store loads. You search for the app. But, when you click the Get button, the app page refreshes. The download never starts. Each time you click the Get button, the Store refreshes. And, it keeps refreshing.

Sign Out Of The Store

This is the best option. It worked for several users. It's your first fix. Here's what to do.

  • Firstly, click your profile picture in the top right corner of the Microsoft Store.
  • Then, click your account.
  • A window pops up. Choose Sign out.
  • While still in the store, go to the app you want to download.
  • Click download.
  • Sign in with your Microsoft account.

That's it! You solved your Microsoft Store refresh loop problem. Did it not work for you? Then, you have two other options.

Uninstall & Reinstall Microsoft Store App

The other day, my Settings app did not work. I uninstalled it and then installed it again. It worked immediately. Here's how to do the same with the Microsoft Store.

  • Firstly, open the Settings app.
  • Then, go to Apps.
  • From the list of apps, choose Microsoft Store.
  • Then, click Advanced Options.

This option uninstalls and re-installs the app on your system. It may take a while to finish. Try to download or update your apps once finished.
