    I haven't a clue. Have you gone to Launchpad or Finder and searched 'App' or 'App Store'?

    Try searching manually through Finder/Launchpad themselves. My App Store is on my deck, so I'm not sure where yours has randomly gone.

    Can you just confirm what version of Mac OS you have? You can find this in Apple > About This Mac..

    (The reason I ask is that the Mac App Store was added in 10.6.6, so you can still have Snow Leopard (10.6) but not have the Mac App Store)

    Solved it,I had to update the OS as snow leopard doesnt include the app store by default u gotta install the OS then update it. Anyway I am going to see if the system can handle el capitan as I am running into issues running an old OS.. I swear snow leopard isnt that old tho?

    Snow Leopard is almost 7 years old - personally I wouldn't risk it if your computer is about as old
