Troubleshooting tips for launching the Microsoft Store
Check and update your Windows version

Update your operating system to the latest Windows software, if available. HP Smart is compatible with Windows 10 version 1809 or higher and Windows 11. To check for updates, select “Start” > “Settings” > “Windows Update”. Select “Check for Updates”.

Disconnect from VPN

Apps from the Microsoft Store might not install when connected to a VPN. Consider location and the security of the Wi-Fi network before disconnecting from a VPN.

Skip Microsoft Account Creation

If prompted to create or sign in to a Microsoft account, close the window. You will be able to open the app store anyways. A Microsoft account is not required to install or use HP Smart. HP Smart is a free software for printer setup and use.

Check computer time and location settings

If the Microsoft Store won’t open, verify your time settings are correct. Select “Start” > “Settings” > “Time & Language”. Check the “Date & time” and “Region” to make sure they are your current location and time zone.

Reset the Microsoft store cache

Press the Windows key + R to open the “Run” dialog box, type “wsreset.exe”, and then select “OK”. A blank window will open for about 10 seconds, then the app store will launch automatically.
