  1. Almost every program and app closes immediately when opening them


    Hello!So I just got this issue out of nowhere that almost every program, app and game I try to open closes immediately. This even affects programs like Edge Chromium, Sound, Notepad, Troubleshooter, Event Viewer and so on so I can't check what might cause the issue because I cant access Event Viewer. Some programs still work like Firefox, Discord, Steam, VLC media player, Word, PowerPoint, Excel and File Explorer. Also some of the program which start when Windows stars but they only work in the background. For example when I open Bitdefender interface it closes immediately but is still worki

    Stock calculator app opens and closes immediately

    WOW, such service.... such a quick reply. First, no need to apologize, it's not something you did. From searching at the community forum I notice what's happening with Calculator happens with other apps - they open then close immediately.

    Yes, my inquiry was about the Calculator app, the one that's built into / comes with Windows 10. I updated to Windows 10 ver. 2004 the other day. Prior my updating, Calculator worked. Now it opens and all I get to see is a blue dialog and then it closes
    immediately.

    so... your suggestion #1 "**Run the troubleshooter" .... did it, here's a screenshot of what came up

    ... your suggestion #2 "**Reset the Microsoft Store cache" did that and tried Calculator - blue dialog and then it closes immediately

    ... your suggestion #3 "Press Start then search Apps and Features ... Search Calculator app on the list .... Click then select Advanced options .... Click Terminate then Reset" did that and nothing - tried Calculator - blue dialog
    and then it closes immediately.

    .... and here's a video of me trying to run Calculator after completing suggestions #1-3

    I captured a video of trying to run Calculator. I can't attach it here but I'm uploading it to Firefox Send. Because I don't have an account there this link will only last one day or one download https://send.firefox.com/download/62fb9966137838d4/#2SxodDMEoCw__yMBYAU5lA

    btw, I also downloaded another calculator app from the app store (see below).... Same thing, it opens and then closes immediately. I did the same with resetting it like in your suggestion #3.

    I'm going to read a book right now so no need to reply until you feel like doing so.

    Thank you very much for the quick response and suggestions. I'm sure this will all be resolved eventually.

    Programs I open immediately close

    I have Windows 10. It was fine but then a few months ago my mouse started acting weird and now whenever I open a program, if it opens that is, most of them immediately close. Or they don't close but reset.

    Examples:

    In browser, I search for something and go to look at an answer, immediately the tab refreshes to the Google Search homepage.

    When I open Documents, I click through 1 or options and back to the Documents homepage.

    I've ran virus checks, and when those don't close out, it says everything is fine and up to date.

    Then there's the mouse, when that started glitching on me, it kept having me have to double click stuff. Highlighting doesn't always work, and sometimes if I'm in a documents, when I'm trying to highlight something, it ends up moving what the text out of
    order.

    Any suggestions?
