Windows 10 users are currently experiencing issues with the Microsoft Store, with the app unable to download and install apps and crashing after repeated attempts.

When attempting to download apps from the Microsoft Store, users are seeing a loading or frozen page. Specifically, nothing happens when users click on the "Get" button to download apps or games.

When attempting to access various Microsoft Store features, such as the downloads section, the program will sit at a screen with a spinning loading symbol.

Could it be related to Microsoft updating the store's backend for tomorrow's Windows 11 reveal where they promised a new Windows Store among other things? :unsure:
Edit: The store is actually working for me. Even installed an app for testing.
