  1. Cannot Find C:\Program Files\WindowsApps


    The message below opens every time I power on my computer. I click ok and it goes away until next time. Windows 10 . This only started happening AFTER ALT F4 no longer was working to shut down the laptop. Any suggestions on how to fix ? Thank you.Windows cannot find ‘C:\Program Files\WindowApps\DB6EA5DB.Power2BGoforDell_11.0.3920.0x86_m…\CLMLSvc_P2G11.exe’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

    Unnecessary apps in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

    I see a lots of versions of the same app in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps. These are apps that I don't even have installed. Overall they are taking up about 10GB.

    1. How can I remove these apps completely?
    2. Or can I keep only the most recent version?

    The storage sense
    suggested here
    or disk cleanup of system files has not helped.

    Here is the log of some of the unnecessary apps with sizes in MB

    Code:

    What is the default OWNER of C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

    H PollockLA

    Click your Start Button, then just type cmd

    From the resulting list, right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator'

    Paste this into Command Prompt and press Enter:

    icacls "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" /reset /t /c /q

    What command will take time to execute, wait for that command to complete, then close Command Prompt

    That will reset all permissions on the WindowsApps folder and all contained files and folders
