I just formated my disk C so i can play Forza Horizon 4 again because i had 50GB of voided space from a failed install of the said game.

Now i literally do not have Microsoft Store on my PC. If i search for it, theres a basic black/white icon and when i click it it opens up for 2 seconds and then shuts down. No error, no nothing. When i check the app, it takes 8KB of space.

Ive tried so many fixes and none worked. Im so damn confused and frustrated because i did this to play 1 game, and i still cant do it.

If anyone has any idea how they would fix this id be glad to hear it!

I assume so, yes. When i installed windows i downloaded it from microsoft on the flash drive. That was like 2 years ago.
Get an up-to-date version from Microsoft and follow the directions to make a bootable flash drive. Then do a full, fresh install, boot to the flash drive -- not any system repair screen or through Windows -- and completely wipe your OS drive. Make sure no other drives are connected while you're installing Windows other than the OS drive and the flash drive.

Thanks! I thought there might be a different solution but I understood that its probably only possible that way. Shame..
