windows 8.1 apps are not downloading

Hi There

if you are struck with the weird problem, that windows is unable to download your app, even though you asked it to…

and the app simply sits in the pending status, it might be because of your connection settings…

Yes, the internet connection settings, called metered connections.

Windows 8 / 8.1 have put in a good stuff to stop the download on metered connections, if the internet is chargeable, in order reduce the cost,

Coming to solution of how to get rid of the metered connection use the below

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you’re using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
  2. Tap or click Network, and then tap or click Connections.
  3. Tap or click the connection you want to change, and then, under Data usage, turn Set as a metered connection on or off.

if this have solved your problem please do let me know through the comments.
