    I just updated KB5001391 Cumulative Update Preview, and I noticed the People app has gone from start menu. Can anyone else confirm?

    People is still there within the Mail app.....but I don't want to have to open Mail to access People, I want it pinned as a tile.

  2. People App Live Tile Does Not Work

    OK, solution that worked for me:

    • Using PowerShell run in administrator mode
    • Uninstall "People" app
    • Reinstall all standard apps:
    I am no expert; the instructions are per following link at HowToGeek:

    How to Uninstall Windows 10's Built-in Apps (and How to Reinstall Them)

    You might want to read above article first, but here are critical steps that I used for reinstall "People"

    1. Must right click on PowerShell tile and run in Administrator Mode

    2. To Uninstall "People" paste after prompt:

    Get-AppxPackage *people* | Remove-AppxPackage

    3. To Reinstall ALL Built-in apps (following is all one line):

    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    I saw no message in PowerShell when I did the step 2 uninstall, but the app was gone.

    The "scary" part (for me) was the command to Reinstall all the Built-in Apps -- "scary" because I thought default settings might all disappear ... or I might be faced with needing to reinstall all of Windows 10. But
    worked fine; only a few settings had to be re-enabled:

    • Taskbar title now appears as "People"
    • Includes image of two little people.
    • Opens fine and all settings remained as they were before the reinstall
    • I was not using many of default apps, but looks like:
      • Mail, Calendar maintained settings with exception of having to again permit access to my location.
      • Cortana had to be re-enabled and setup.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. people app and tile gone? :)

    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)
