NoxPlayer Android Emulator sometimes opens Google Play Store but sometimes the only option is a game store.

For example, a lot of the time I get this appeared.

The options like the little Google Play icon at the top of this window or the search bar aren't bringing up the actual Google Play Store.

From time to time, the Google Play Store has come up, but I'm not sure what I've clicked to bring it up.

How can I ensure it opens the actual Google Play Store, not the games store?

looks to me like you have to double click the nox assist icon on the desktop, rather than the nox icon , that will open up a different executable.. and the google play there is normal

enter image description here

NoxAsst is a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Nox\bin\MultiPlayerManager.exe" -shortCut

Nox is a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Nox\bin\Nox.exe"

By clicking NoxAssist, then you get the NoxAsst window

enter image description here

And the google play icon there (in the NoxAsst window) works
