61. 00:03:56:61 / 00:04:04:05 - you need the package full name so you

95. 00:06:23:83 / 00:06:29:11 - already pasted it so you just paste it
96. 00:06:26:02 / 00:06:33:40 - and then paste over here now in
97. 00:06:29:12 / 00:06:36:81 - PowerShell you need to run a couple of
98. 00:06:33:41 / 00:06:41:82 - commands first okay
99. 00:06:36:81 / 00:06:51:91 - the first one is set okay and then it's

103. 00:07:02:61 / 00:07:10:74 - so now what we need to do is go to where
104. 00:07:07:07 / 00:07:13:37 - we pasted our file okay so when you open
105. 00:07:10:74 / 00:07:16:37 - up that Minnesota it generally doesn't
106. 00:07:13:37 / 00:07:18:99 - start at the see begin you'll see the
107. 00:07:16:37 / 00:07:23:57 - route where we have actually pasted that
108. 00:07:18:99 / 00:07:26:37 - okay so we'll just type in CD backslash
109. 00:07:23:57 / 00:07:29:15 - okay which actually brings you there if
110. 00:07:26:37 / 00:07:33:09 - I type in dir you'll be able to see the
111. 00:07:29:16 / 00:07:35:72 - file what we now need to do is type in
112. 00:07:33:08 / 00:07:37:73 - this again this command should be there
113. 00:07:35:72 / 00:07:42:52 - in the description that you can just
114. 00:07:37:74 / 00:07:46:80 - copy and paste run that it says run once
115. 00:07:42:52 / 00:07:51:16 - once we have basically ensured we have
116. 00:07:46:80 / 00:07:59:15 - set execution policy okay you can then
117. 00:07:51:16 / 00:07:59:14 - run once okay that should bring back
118. 00:07:59:36 / 00:08:05:66 - store if we type in store there we go
119. 00:08:05:87 / 00:08:14:43 - and our store is back just a couple of
120. 00:08:12:75 / 00:08:17:26 - little things that you might want to do
121. 00:08:14:43 / 00:08:20:25 - to tidy up everything towards the end is
122. 00:08:17:26 / 00:08:23:37 - reset your Windows Store which is that
123. 00:08:20:25 / 00:08:27:38 - command which we have over here WS reset
124. 00:08:23:37 / 00:08:30:53 - dot exe okay you just run that that
125. 00:08:27:38 / 00:08:34:55 - basically just resets the cache Windows
126. 00:08:30:53 / 00:08:37:19 - Store okay it takes about a minute or a
127. 00:08:34:55 / 00:08:38:77 - little bit less actually there we go and
128. 00:08:37:20 / 00:08:42:12 - then we'll open up Windows Store again
129. 00:08:38:77 / 00:08:45:89 - let's close that and another thing is
130. 00:08:42:12 / 00:08:48:40 - remember before we put back I mean we
131. 00:08:45:89 / 00:08:50:00 - created the execution policy to
132. 00:08:48:40 / 00:08:52:30 - unrestricted that's a little
133. 00:08:50:00 / 00:08:56:79 - dangerous to keep it open all the time
134. 00:08:52:30 / 00:09:01:51 - so let's just do one final thing set
135. 00:08:56:79 / 00:09:09:46 - execution all this seed and back to
136. 00:09:01:51 / 00:09:13:34 - restricted ok that's yes there we go
137. 00:09:09:47 / 00:09:15:92 - so this video a little bit long however

139. 00:09:15:91 / 00:09:21:16 - from running okay using the firewall if
140. 00:09:19:10 / 00:09:22:61 - you completely want to get rid of it

142. 00:09:22:61 / 00:09:29:45 - it and also how to reinstall it if need
