    How do I fix my store app. It's grayed out and I can't open It. I tried the appf fix and it didn't work. I also tried clearing the Cache and still didn't work. Please help.

    I need help please. My app store is not working. I noticed a few days ago that some of my app are grayed out. My store app is all grayed out and I can't open it. I already tried clearing the cache and use the fix my app from the windows website and still
    didn't work.

    There are a few of my apps that are all grayed out as well and it needed repair or reinstall the app. How did this happen? All of those app icons were all there when my computer automatically update my pc from windows 7 to windows 10. PLEASE HELP... :-(

    Thank you,

    Windows Time (clock) out of sync

    Since the last update, I had on my windows 10 - 64bit pro, the time is out of sync whenever I boot up the windows.

    set time automatically & set timezone automatically are
    ON and selected timezone (grayed out) is also correctly showing my town, but the time is wrong. I should always turn the setTimeAuto OFF and ON then windows syncs the clock, and on next shutdown and boot up, again the same problem.

    • set time automatically -> ON
    • set timezone automatically -> ON
    • change date and time -> grayed out
    • TimeZone -> grayed out and correct chosen city
    • adjust for daylight saving time automatically -> ON grayed out
    • don't show additional calendars
    • internet time settings -> sync with time server ~ time.windows.com & time.nist.gov (tried both)

    If you haven't already, see if restarting the PC may fully apply the .reg file.

    I checked the registry and the key wasn't even added to the registry.

  8. Automatic App Updates Grayed Out

    Mine is also inactive. I presume it is because it is the Home edition; I upgraded Win7 Home Premium.

    I'd call this a early release bug. It's most likely an over zealous developer carrying over the WU controls (or lack there of). Users better be able to decide if the apps get updated - apps aren't the OS.

    Ummmm well maybe some of them are - but hey I might not want my games updated.

    I just checked a clean install of Windows 10 Home in a VM, and it's the same in it as well.

    It looks like the no opting out of automatic updates in the Home edition applies to everything.

    I'm not talking about Windows Updates updates, but rather app updates, e.g. Netflix, etc. I can't enable or disable that option to have my apps update automatically.

    I'm referring to both automatic Windows Updates and app updates can't be changed in Home.

    Automatic App Updates Grayed Out

    That's strange... so are the apps already forced to update automatically in Home?

    That's silly. Personally, I don't mind the Windows updates... but app updates too...

    Yeah, that's the price of going with Home instead of Pro. *Sad
