Fix: Error 0x80246007 while installing OneNote app

We all know that OneNote is a handy app that lets us create notes on the go. In Windows 8.1 or later, the app comes pre-installed with the operating system. However, if you have not received the app pre-installed or if you have accidentally uninstalled this app, you can get it from Windows Store. We’ve already shared fixes for some common error codes like 0×80070005, 0×80240437, 0x8024001e, 0x8024600e, 0x80073cf9, 0x80244018 while installing apps from Windows Store. We recently came across the following error code, which is bit different – while installing OneNote:

This app wasn’t installed. Something happened and this app couldn’t be installed. Please try again. Error code: 0x80246007

If you’re too facing this error, we suggest you to first try Windows Apps Troubleshooter and see if it solves the issue. In some scenarios, creating new administrator account might be helpful to solve such problems. If both of these way didn’t worked for you, then try this dedicated fix for OneNote app to get rid of this hitch:

3. Next, type this command in the same window and hit Enter:
