    Hey all

    Since updating to 8.1 my video app has failed to work. I have the app installed but if I click on the app list it does nothing, if I long press I get option to pin to start but that's all. I have it on my start screen but its greyed out and pressing does nothing. Today I see there is an update for the app great I thought can finally use it again but to my surprise I cant download the update, when I go to the store and go to video it says I have it installed but gives me no option to update or in fact gives me no options what's so ever.

    I'm not really up for hard reset as don't have the time atm but I didn't know if there is a way I can uninstall the app or force the update.

    Thanks for any help in advance

    To force update your app , go to store /tap on three dots/settings /check for updates / if you are on a wifi connection it will download automatically else it will give you a notification to download on a mobile data or wait for wifi to download the update.
