  2. Windows Maps App.

    Hi, Peter

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community, I understand your concern and will try to assit you in the best way we can.

    Have you tried restarting your system and check if you are able to find the app in your computer. If not then I would suggest that you do so and check if you are able to locate the app.

    I would also suggest that you go to your c: drive locate Program Files open WindowsApps and check if the app is present there.

    If you still cant find the app in your system then follow the steps mentioned below to remove and re-install Maps.

    • On the search bar, type “Powershell” right click on it and select Run as Administrator.
    • Copy and paste the command stated below
    get-appxpackage *Microsoft.WindowsMaps* |remove-appxpackage

    • This will remove Maps from your system, you can install the app again from Store. But it will required to close Windows Store (if opened) to reinstall Maps.

    Hope this information helps

    Map app shutting down

    Hello Emma,

    Thank you for responding.

    I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    I suggest you to uninstall the apps which came inbuilt with Windows 10 using Windows PowerShell and reinstall using Windows store.

    Note: You need to close the Windows Store and other apps before executing the PowerShell command. Also, sign-out and sign-in before installing the apps from the
    store.

    Follow the below steps.

    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in the search bar.
    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter the below command to reinstall the Mail and calendar app.

    • get-appxpackage *Microsoft.WindowsMaps* | remove-appxpackage

    After performing the above steps, install the Map app from the Windows store.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of this issue with required information, we will be happy to help you further.
