Posted by cryptokid, Mon Aug-24-20 11:05 PM
I need some help with adding apps in my Windows 10. When I attempt to add an app it will not get to the point where I can install it. It just keeps Pending". It never proceeds any further no matter how long I leave on the computer Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.

See if this helps:
In the search box, type in RAN
Select Ransomware Protection
Under Controlled Folder Access, Click button to turn "OFF", if it's ON.
Close Settings. Try adding an app again.

A list appears for me when I type RAN in the Settings search. "RAN" is short for Ransomware. Click on the Ransomware Protection.
If no dropdown list appears, try typing in Ransomware Protection.

When I type RAN in the settings search it goes indeed, show Ransomware protection but when I click on it I get the following: Your IT administrator has limited access to some areas of this app.
I get the same message with I click on Controlled Folder Access. What would you suggest I try now. Thank you for your help.

That's interesting. When I click the button, it switches from its current setting to the opposite setting On/Off - Off/On.
On the Settings/Ransomware page, in the left column I'd go through all the various categories to see if anything obvious stands out.
You don't have an "IT Administrator", do you?
I have to go out for awhile but I'll check back later. Good luck.
