If you have Settings or a Microsoft Store app not working right, crashing, or not opening, you can reset it.

The Reset feature allows you to either try to Repair an app (if supported), or Reset the app to default if a repair didn't help.

Repairing an app will not affect the app's data or settings.

Resetting an app to default will permanently delete the app's data on your device, including your preferences and sign-in details.

Repairing an app will unpin the app from the taskbar if pinned. You will need to pin to taskbar the app again after the repair if wanted.




Here's How:

1 Open Settings (Win+I). (see screenshot below)

2 Click/tap on Apps on the left side, and click/tap on Apps & features or Installed apps on the right side. (see screenshot below)

That's it,
