    Task Manager and other apps won't stay open and other problems


    When I open task manager it opens and closes immediately. Similarly when I open Microsoft solitaire I can click on a challenge the ad opens and then before it is done it closes and the solitaire game does not come up. I'm having problems with edge not working with Facebook and taking time or freezing. Most seems to have happened since the latest Windows 10 update.

  3. 3D Builder app won`t stay opened

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. I'll surely help you with the issue that you face.

    Did you make any changes to your computer prior to this?

    You may first of all run the Windows store apps troubleshooter and check.

    Try these steps to run the troubleshooter:

    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.
    • Click view all in the left panel.
    • Select ‘Windows store apps' and follow the on-screen instructions.

    You may also update the app through the Windows store if there is an update available, which fixes minor crashes and bugs.

    Hope this post helps. Get back to us for further queries. We are happy to help!

  4. Task Manager and other apps won't stay open and other problems

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

    In Settings in Store I set "Update apps automatically" to Off.

    When I go back in again it`s set back to On. Why won`t it stay switched Off?

    How do I get this stupid **** to DO WHAT I TELL IT and SWITCH OFF?

    What`s the point of having a Setting that you can`t Set?
