Unknown protocol error when clicking windows store links

  • When trying to download an app from the windows store website an error is thrown instead of opening the windows store app. There is no mention of ms-windows-store in the windows settings (Settings> Default apps > Choose default applications by protocol)

    ERROR MESSAGE:
    Unknown protocol

    Opera was unable to open the link since no application associated with "ms-windows-store:" protocol was found on your system.

    EXAMPLE WEB ADDRESS:
    www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/sketchable

    OS:
    Windows 10 latest

    OPERA:
    41.0.2353.46

  • It's because Opera can't handle the store protocol.
    Try setting Windows Store as the default handler for that protocol and see if it helps.
