    Microsoft native apps won't open.


    None of the native Microsoft Apps will open. They all will close/crash shortly after the outline of the App pops up. Some of the apps that crash are Microsoft Store, Mail, Maps, Calendar, Photos, Groove Music, Xbox etc.


    I have tried a number of fixes, including:

    • Trying to reset the affected apps
    • Using the troubleshooter feature on the Windows Store Apps
      • It says "Hanging or Crashing Apps" fixed, but nothing is fixed
    • Running Windows in Clean Mode, the same issue persisted
      • Trying this somehow disable the Setting buttons from the start menu. Clicking on it does nothing, however, I can still access the setting after adding it to the system tray
    • running "wsreset" in Command Prompt
    • Running a host of other things in Command Prompt that I found on YouTube.


    I would rather not have to reset Windows and have to go through the laborious process of reinstalling all my programs and settings, if possible.


    Thanks in advance for any help.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Microsoft native apps won't open. :)

    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)

    3D Builder app won`t stay opened

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. I'll surely help you with the issue that you face.

    Did you make any changes to your computer prior to this?

    You may first of all run the Windows store apps troubleshooter and check.

    Try these steps to run the troubleshooter:

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Click view all in the left panel.
    • Select ‘Windows store apps' and follow the on-screen instructions.

    You may also update the app through the Windows store if there is an update available, which fixes minor crashes and bugs.

    Hope this post helps. Get back to us for further queries. We are happy to help!
