    finish setting up my device after restart but not re-open apps


    I noticed after Windows 10 restart when I'd left my apps open that they re-opened... which I don't want. (side-note: I usually close them first due to weird issues in Windows 7, but I noticed that I'm not having that issue in 10 now)

    I found the toggle for the setting in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in > Privacy in "Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device and reopen my apps after an update or restart".

    However, I want Windows to automatically finish setting up my device after update or restart, but I don't want it to open up apps that were open when I rebooted or shut down (unless it's required for the update).

    Am I misunderstanding what "finish setting up my device" means? I thought it meant: "after an update, when it prompts me to reboot, it'll finish the update all by itself". Well, I want the update to finish automatically without it being tied to re-opening apps I had open before a restart that have nothing to do with the update.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. finish setting up my device after restart but not re-open apps :)

    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)

    Cannot open mail app settings


    OK, my next suggestion was going to be uninstalling Mail and Calendar and reinstalling from the Windows Store. You can have a go at this by following these steps.

    1. Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell.
    2. Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    3. Enter the below command to remove the Mail and calendar app.

    get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps* | remove-appxpackage

    After performing the above steps, install the Mail and calendar app from the Windows Store.

    Hope this helps, you will, of course, have to add you accounts back again.

  4. finish setting up my device after restart but not re-open apps

    Open settings of Windows 8 App

    Hi Thomas,

    In response to your query, please be informed that Windows 10 is in the list of supported operating system for Modern Reader. Also, the swipe from the right option is for Windows 8 and 8.1 therefore, that step will not open the settings. However, most
    apps have their own settings, therefore, I suggest you to look for a gear icon in the app and check if you are able to find the option you are looking for.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
