The issue that you are facing might occur due to outdated Video card drivers or incorrect resolution settings.

I would like to inform you the basic information about App’s:

UAC (User Account Control) must be enabled.

  1. To access the Windows Store and to download and run apps, you need an active Internet connection and a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
  2. To snap apps, you need a screen resolution of at least 1366 x 768.
  3. Make sure video card driver is updated.


What are User Account Control settings?

I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

Method 1: Change the resolution and check if that helps.

  1. Press Windows key + X.
  2. Click Command Prompt (Administrator).
  3. Type “desk.cpl” & press Enter.
  4. Please change the resolution of the screen to 1366*768.
