    After opening an app from taskbar, it automatically closes.


    I have a 10 yr old Dell 540 Desktop 64 bit that was updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10 ten years ago. I keep it updated (currently at release 1909...latest) I have run sfc scan, Dism, Defender offline scan, defender full and quick scans, along with Malware bytes scan, with no problems. I've poured over taskbar and mouse settings! I've contacted MS Chat, with (0) ZERO results or help, except for a case number. Here's my strange problem. I can open Windows Edge, then open another taskbar app or even a third from the taskbar . After having two or three apps open from the taskbar and showing open on the taskbar as open, if I go to any of the 3 open, as soon as I move the pointer OFF the taskbar, that app closes on my screen. The only way I can get to any of the open apps from the taskbar is to hold down left mouse button, or both mouse buttons and move it up to the open window. If I move it out of that window that app closes on my screen and I have to go to the taskbar and repeat. The only other way to navigate is to use Alt+ab to get to open apps, I cannot do it with the mouse pointer. I have reloaded Windows 10 WITH deleting all apps etc. Did not help... On a scale of 1-10 on the PC as A tech, I'm not a Geek or novice, but a solid 7.5. This just happened out of the blue spontaneously for no apparent reason. I'm at a point even some remote help would be welcomed. I have fixed EVERY problem I've ever had on this PC since I've had it, but this one's got me!!! I've also done a check disk...all ok. Everything works great, no slowdown or other problems of any kind. It's got ME!!!!! MS was pst because I wouldn't send them a screenshot....of what?...a closed window?????? Any help of any kind appreciated, even remote if necessary.

  2. Windows Apps automatically closes

    hey,

    I suggest you to perform the following steps one by one and check if it helps.

    • Running the App troubleshooter
    Run the App troubleshooter named Windows store Apps from control Panel and check if it helps.

    If not then,

    • Perform System File Check (SFC)
    Follow the steps:

    a. Press “Windows Key + Q” to open search Bar.

    b. Type cmd without quotes in the search box.

    c. On the left pane, right click on the “cmd” option and select “Run as Administrator”.

    d. Type sfc /scannow’ without quotes and hit enter.

    If still not helps then,

    • run the System update readiness command. It detects incorrect manifests, cabinets or registry data, it may replace the incorrect data with corrected version available. Follow the steps.
    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Click command prompt (Run as administrator).
    • In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press Enter key after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.

    Reply back with the results would be happy to help.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. After opening an app from taskbar, it automatically closes. :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
