  1. Optional features


    Following an update which created too many issues including failure of a set point reset, I was forced to recover Windows, leaving the files but erasing or deleting all programs, and leaving a mess, including dead start all program icons and missing apps or features.
    I am currently trying to access the legacy optional features like paint, media player, and notebook.
    There is an icon in start all features with opens to list them all, but clicking on any one only provides the option to uninstall. I have not been able to access them.
    How can this be done?
    Thank you.

    :)

    manage optional features

    Hi Alicia,

    There could be a setting that has been configured to open the Manage optional features automatically. We'd like to know a few things so we could provide an accurate resolution. Kindly answer the following:

    • Have you made any changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • Is Manage optional features popping up right after you turn on your computer or while using it?
    • Are you trying to disable the Manage optional features completely?

    If you're trying to disable any of the optional features, here are the steps on how to do it :

    • Go to Control Panel and click on Programs.
    • Click on the Turn Windows features on or off.
    • On Windows Features, select the feature(s) that you want to enable or disable and click
      OK.
    • Restart your computer as the wizard says to complete the task.

    We'll be waiting for your response.
