  1. I can't open Windows Store nor the Calculator


    Hello there, I've noticed just today that I can't open Windows Store nor the Calculator. I saw some people say that they have issues with all Windows Apps in this case, but for me, Photos, Camera, and a few others I tested all work fine. However, Store (and Calculator) both crash as soon as they begin loading. The window comes up, then vanishes. :/ I've been looking for solutions for hours now. I've tried so many things to no avail. I'm so lost.

    Here are some of my failed attempts at trying to fix it:

    The only thing I haven't done as yet is do a repair installation thing where Windows re-installs but keeps your personal files, but I'm honestly not very eager to do so because I really don't have the time to go re-installing a multitude apps/programs that I use all the time. T_T I honestly haven't even downloaded any Apps from the store as yet, but I like checking now and then to see if there's anything useful. Not being able to open it at all is annoying. Even more annoying is the fact that Calculator doesn't work either.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

    :)

  3. windows 10 update

    I involuntarily had windows 10 updates foisted on me this week and as a consequence the following occurred:

    I have no windows calculator

    the windows store doesn't work

    therefore I can't download an app for the calculator

    nor will I be able to download Office 365 because the store doesn't work

    my notifications will not open

    in fact much of the taskbar functions are defunct

    I had to download another Start Menu

    Cortana doesn't work - not that it is of much use anyway

    A CD Rom will work but only half the features on it - the interactive part of it is defunct

    I could go on....and on...

  5. I did the in-place repair, and now Store doesn't open at all. I can click it how many times - nothing will happen. Calculator still crashes. I'll check the other solutions. T_T

    The problem where all Modern Windows Apps briefly flash open then close immediately has been around since they were introduced in Windows 8. The fault seems to be related to permissions.

    Have you tried the Troubleshooter for Windows Store Apps (as Administrator)?

    You can try Tweaking.com's cautious free repair tool, select only the repair for registry permissions.

    I had a similar problem. After changing the calculator type/option to "Date Calculation" it failed and would not open. I was able to fix it by resetting it as follows: 1). Enter "apps" in the Windows 10 Cortana search box and select Apps & Features. (This is just one of many ways to open the Apps & Features window) 2). Enter "calc" in the Search this list box. 3). Select Calculator. 4). Select "Advanced Options". 5). Select the "Reset" button.
