    Some Windows Store Apps won't start, tried many things


    Alright so I have been dealing with this for months now. Some apps won't open, such as Photos and To-Do List for example. Some do open, like Calculator and the Store opens for me as well unlike some people who reported the same problem.

    I have tried pretty much everything I could find on Google but I just can't seem to get it to work.

    I am 90% sure this is about permissions because I had several malware that messed up my permissions. I deleted those malware but I think it didn't solve my permission problem. I played around with the permissions to the best of my ability but no luck still.

    I tried changing permissions in the registry but failed, I ran Tweaking.com but it didn't do the trick, I tried the whole uninstall-install things for the apps many, many times but it didn't work.

    Basically I'm hoping to be able to do something about this without messing around with a reset or format. Any help is appreciated.

    :)

  4. Some Windows Store Apps won't start, tried many things

    Store Settings "Update apps automatically" won`t stay switched off. WHY?

    Hi H. G.,

    The possible reason why Update apps automatically turn back on is that the Store app is running in the background. We suggest that you turn off the Store app. This way, it won't receive any updates or send notifications unless opened or turned on
    manually.

    To turn off Store app, follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows logo, then go to Settings.
    • Click Privacy, then Background apps.
    • On the list, locate Store and toggle it off.

    Let us know how it goes so we can further assist you.

    Regards.
