Windows 10 Anniversary Update (to be released on Aug 2, 2016), includes a feature where you can quickly reset a store App without having to uninstall and reinstall it. Universal Apps store their settings in per-app registry hives and the resetting the App is probably the only way you can clear the settings.
Open Settings (WinKey + i) and search for, and launch Apps & Features.
Select the app which you want to reset, click the Advanced options link, and click Reset.
This clears the settings used by the App, including stored credentials for that App (or service) if it uses one.
