How do I fix the Microsoft Store on my Xbox One?

The Xbox One is a great place to enjoy video games, but you can also use it to watch movies and shows. The Microsoft Store is where you can go to purchase movies and TV shows, as well as other apps.

But sometimes, the app store can become unresponsive or fail to load properly. If this happens, here are some things that you should try:

Try to restart your console

If your Xbox One is not responding at all, then restarting it might be your first step in fixing the problem. Restarting your console will close all applications running on it, including the Microsoft Store app.

Connect to a different Wi-Fi network

Make sure you have an active internet connection – If you have an active internet connection but nothing happens when you open the store, try disconnecting from Wi-Fi.

In this case, try using an ethernet cable instead. This will help rule out any issues with your wireless connection being too slow or unstable.

Check for updates

If there are any available, they’ll be downloaded automatically. This update can fix several issues with the Microsoft Store. 

Also, if you don’t have enough space available, you won’t be able to download or play any game until you free up some storage space. Your Microsoft Store may be unresponsive because of insufficient space. 

You can uninstall other apps or delete saved data from games to free up space and give the app store enough room.

If none of these methods work, try doing a soft test of your console and see if the Microsoft Store problem persists.

To reset, follow the steps below:
