    Mail App Wont Open


    Has windows 10 mail app going for 4 weeks, but today I cannot even open it.
    I see a windows try to open then closes quickly.

    I've uninstalled using powershell then reinstalled from the windows 10 store, but same problem.

    any ideas?

    :)

    Suggestions :

    1. Do a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.
    2. If system file check does not fix the problem, do a Repair Install.

    System File check :
    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    Please post back the result.

    I ran the sfc/scannow it did not find any errors.
    As to your second method, that seems like a lot of work with warnings and such
    I just don't think it's worth it and possibly cause more troubles.

    I've not had a good excperince now on two different machines with win 10, maybe some update will come along and fix
    this issue and several others I've encountered.

    Thank you for responding!.

    My last bag of tricks.............
    Do a system restore. Pick a date when Mail app was working as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10

    P.S. I have a much more simpler way to do Repair Install.
    If system restore does nothing to help, and if you still want to try Repair Install, let me know.

    Well, this is mysterious?
    I did nothing to fix this, so maybe an update came along?

    I ran the mail app and it started this morning.
    It is asking for me to setup my account credentials again, but go figure, its weird.

    Another Windows 10 mystery.

    At least you are now back in business.
    Happy computing.
