First, run the System File Checker command in Windows 10 to check for missing or corrupted files and repair them. Go to your Taskbar, and in the search type Command Prompt. When you see the Command Prompt in search results, right-click and select “Run as Administrator” Than when in the Command Prompt Screen type:

sfc /scannow

This will find and repair corrupted Windows 10 system files. It may take time to complete. When the utility is done, close all Windows and reboot

Next, try to reset the Microsoft Store App and than when that is done, close out of all Windows, reboot your computer, and than try to launch the Microsoft Store again. To reset the store components, follow these steps:

To reset the Microsoft Store app in Windows 10, do the following.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Go to Apps -> Apps & features.
  3. On the right side, look for Microsoft Store and click it.
  4. The advanced options link will appear. Click it.
  5. On the next page, click on the Reset button to reset Microsoft Store to default settings.

I would also follow this process for the other apps that are not working. Reset each app that is not functioning, and than after all you apps have been reset, reboot your machine.
