  1. Apps I download from the store won't open.


    This has occurred with three different apps I've installed from the Microsoft Store. Only one app I've installed is working properly.
    I tried to install iTunes, LastPass for Windows Desktop, and Telegram Desktop and they all produce the same message when I start them:

    "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

    When I go into Apps & Features and click "advanced options" on these apps, under specifications it says that App, Data, and Total Usage are all 0 bytes.

  3. Store Settings "Update apps automatically" won`t stay switched off. WHY?

    Hi H. G.,

    The possible reason why Update apps automatically turn back on is that the Store app is running in the background. We suggest that you turn off the Store app. This way, it won't receive any updates or send notifications unless opened or turned on
    manually.

    To turn off Store app, follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows logo, then go to Settings.
    • Click Privacy, then Background apps.
    • On the list, locate Store and toggle it off.

    Let us know how it goes so we can further assist you.

    Regards.

    Apps I download from the store won't open.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Apps I download from the store won't open. :)

    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)
