  1. Apps not opening


    I have my old Windows 8.1 laptop for using my Sound Forge Audio Studio to master and edit my music files. It has always worked until 3/2/24, I have uninstalled and reinstalled it to no avail. When trying to open it, the window asks if I would like the computer to allow the program to make changes to my computer. No matter what I click on, it will not open. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Apps not opening :)

    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)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!

    Apps not opening

    Can I customize the list of suggest apps in the "Open with" menu?

    You can't use it to add additional programs, only to set default programs.

    Interestingly for me it shows nothing for text files:

    Then if I want to add a portable app like Jarte Plus to open with context menu windows doesn't like it.

    It's not present and is near impossible to add even via "look for an app on this PC"

    OpenWithAdd to the rescue:
