  1. Cannot open anything


    I recently purchased my laptop. It was working fine until yesterday. Suddenly, the taskbar got freeze. I couldn't open start button, WiFi, search bar. Then i googled it and found many users had faced this problem. So I searched how to fix this on YouTube but nothing worked. And now i can't even open this pc, recycle bin and other applications. I can't play music and videos. It just displays this message "windows cannot access the specified device path you may not have appropriate permission". Now what should I do?

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Cannot open anything :)

    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)
