    For some reason when I try to open most apps on my pc I get the error:

    (file name)

    The specified path does not exist.



    Check the path, then try again.


    I tried to check the specified path and the file was there. I tried to open the file but I got the same error.


    I also tried to delete things to update my computer to see if it would fix it. But it lead to another problem. Trying to delete some things I was told I needed permission to delete some files and I clicked continue but it lead to it infinite calculating. User Account Control didn't ask me anything. I also tried cancelling but it did infinite cancelling too.

    :)

  2. Calculator Will not Open

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.


    • Are you facing this issue on a local account or the Microsoft account?

    • Are you facing this issue with the built in calculator or the calculator app?
    If it is a built in Calculator I would suggest you to check if you can open and check the status.


    • Press Windows + R keys.

    • Type calc and hit Enter
      and check the status if its opening.
    I would also suggest you to try creating a new user account
    and check if issue persists.

    Click on the below link to check how to create new user account in Windows 10

    Microsoft Support link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/create-a-local-user-account-in-windows-10

    Window 10 Pro - Calculator error

    Hi Suman,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the calculator on Windows 10. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • Did you make any changes to the PC prior to this issue?

    • Are you facing this issue on the calculator app or the built-in calculator?

    Some problems can be fixed by signing out of your account and then signing back in. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select Sign out. Once you’ve signed out, sign back in to your account.

    To open the built-in calculator, follow these steps:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type “calc” and hit enter to open the calculator.

    If you are facing issue with the calculator app, then you will be able to solve some problems by running a troubleshooter that will automatically fix some common issues with Windows Store Apps. Once this is done check the status.

    Open the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter by following these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Control Panel.

    • Click on Troubleshooting and click on
      View All.

    Click on “Windows Store Apps” troubleshooter to fix problems with Windows Store Apps. Follow the on-screen directions to run this troubleshooter and restart the computer to check if this helps.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
