    Simultaneously open multiple files with different apps


    From Windows 10 file explorer, I cannot simultaneously open multiple files with different apps. For example, I want to open a .docx file with Word, a .xlsx file with Excel, and .pdf file with Adobe at the same time. When I select the files I want to open and click enter or contol+shift+enter, none of the files open. Selecting the files and right clicking also does not provide me the option to 'Open.' Interestingly, I can simultaneously open multiple files with the same app i.e. open 3 .pdf files at once with Adobe. Default apps are already correctly assigned to the appropriate file type. How do I simultaneously open multiple files with different apps? Thank you!

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Simultaneously open multiple files with different apps :)

    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)
