    Default Play Store won't let me download anything.

    Lately play store hasn't been letting me download anything. It doesn't come up with any messages saying there is an error but you know when you click to download something there is a moving blue line under the name showing the progress or something, that appears and just moves for ages and doesn't download anything. I left one app for 2 hours and the line just kept moving and nothing downloaded.

    Also the notification bar at the top of tablet it usually comes up there doesn't it? Nothing comes up when I try to download something. My internet connection is fine. I've also signed in and out of Google and even made a new account and still not working! Any ideas? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums! You may want to clear the Play Store's cache.

    Go to Settings-->Apps-->All
    Select Play Store
    Click Clear Cache

    If that doesn't do it click Clear Data

    That may just get you going again.
    Live long and prosper.

    I tried clearing the cache and it didn't work. Then I went into 'clear data' and a scary message came up. Being of a technically inept and nervous disposition I left that alone. Next I tried'force stop' and restarted the app as normal. It started downloading my stuff immediately. Half of what I wanted downloaded and then I had to repeat the clear cache and force stop. Everything is now working fine.
    Hope this helps.

    Where is Settings -- Apps -- All?

    Welcome to Android Central! Tap your System Settings icon. This can be found in various places--in the App Drawer (listed as Settings), in the swipe-down notification shade or quick settings shade, or sometimes when you press the hard menu key, if you have one (like the Droid Razr line). The Settings icon usually looks like a gear or a panel of slider switches.

    After getting to the main Settings menu, then tap the Apps menu, and then swipe over until you see the "All" list.
