    Calculator launches with blank blue display?


    I've been running Win10 for almost a year. In the last week or so, my Calculator app has started a weird behavior. Usually when I launch it (from the Run dialog), it displays the app window -- but it's all blue with a white calculator icon in the center. Basically it's what displays BEFORE the app paints all the calculator keys / display / etc.

    If I immediately launch it again, it displays properly. I can keep launching and every one displays properly. Then if I come back and launch it a few hours later, it displays the blue window.

    !??

    :)

    Windows Store will no longer come up after the last update in my Windows 10 desktop.

    When I launch the store App I get a full screen blank blue screen for a few seconds and then that goes away and things return to the way they were before the store App was launched. This happened yesterday every time I tried to launch the App and it is
    happening again today.

    There is no error message.

    This has happened since the last update to Windows 10.

    Everything seemed normal before.

    I can still use some of the Microsoft Apps I have already installed, but the calculator doesn't work any more either. It tries to start and then crashes just like the store App.

    Windows App troubleshooter didn't resolve the issue.

  3. Windows programs won't launch

    Hello Anju,

    First, please note that the problem is that default Microsoft programs/apps don't launch. After launching, they immediately close again. This is not a problem about blue screen, because I don't have any blue screens anymore.

    I've tried the second method and it didn't help; the programs (for example calculator, weather and photo viewer) still immediately close after launching.

    Calculator launches with blank blue display?

    I just checked mine from the Run on both the Insider Preview and the Released versions of 1703 and got the blue tile with white calculator symbol just long enough to see it before the calculator itself opened, seemed normal. But then I use the Moffsoft FreeCalc as Treasurer of our church as it has a tape function which is handy for me so for commonality I also use it at home.

    No suggestions? This has been happening very consistently, but only for the last few weeks.

  6. I have this same problem, and its not limited to the calculator app. Its any app that uses the "metro" style tile window, ie store apps. Even my system settings app does this. Have to open everything twice to get it to display. I have no answer for a solution.
