! can't download HP Smart app

HP Recommended
Lenovo Thinkpad

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad and I'm trying to download HP Smart for ease of scanning from my Envy 7645.   In Microsoft store, I hit the download button and nothing happens.  I've checked in the download folder and HP smart download is not there.

Welcome to the HP Community.

 

Store Broken?

 

You MIGHT be able to fix the Store using the inbuilt Store Reset option.

Settings > Apps > Apps and Features

Find and Left-Click on the Microsoft Store application

Advanced > Reset

 

What else?

The original question in the following example is in regards to the HP Smart application.

The answer provided by the Microsoft Community :  Re-Register the Microsoft Store

 

“HP Smart will not install – Windows 10”

Solution from Microsoft Community = Re-register the Microsoft Store

HP Smart – The “Smart” Printer Application for Windows 10

 

So... what - if anything - does the Store know about whether the application is installed / downloaded?

 

For those reading:

Applications that are "downloaded" from the Microsoft Store are not typical "downloads".

The Store is both "store" and "installer" for the available applications.

Yes, you can check "Downloaded" applications in the Store
