Metro app doesn't appear in application list; Can't uninstall

I downloaded "Pirates Love Daisies" this morning. The app does not show up on the Start screen, in search, or in the full list of apps. However, the Store app shows it as purchased and installed, so I can't force a reinstall or uninstall it from there. Is there any way to correct this, or otherwise uninstall the app so that I can download it again?

Hey Vanadiumxero,


Have you tried restarting your computer to see if that causes the Pirates Love Daisies to appear or for the Store to recognize that Pirates Love Daisies isn't present? If not, please restart your computer and let us know if that helps.


If that doesn't help, let's try refreshing your PC to see if that resolves this problem. Here is what will happen when you refresh your PC:

  • Your files and personalization settings won't change.
  • Your PC settings will be changed back to their defaults.
  • Apps from Windows Store will be kept.
  • Apps you installed from discs or websites will be removed.
  • A list of removed apps will be saved on your desktop.


These steps will take you through refreshing your PC:

  • Press Windows key + C on your keyboard to show the Charms bar (If you are using a touchscreen: Touch the right edge of your screen and swipe your finger to the left)
  • Click Settings
  • Click More PC settings
  • Click General in the left column
  • Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, click Get started


Then follow the instructions that will be provided on the screen to refresh your PC.


Look forward to hearing back from you.
