    This App Can't Open


    Hi everyone,About 2 days ago I updated Windows 10 Home 21H1 like normal. Following the update, every single application I try and open shortcut, web shortcut, .exe creates an error message even though the application opens perfectly fine. Not a single of these apps are related to the Microsoft Store/Xbox whatsoever.Does anyone know how to stop this error message from popping up? It's very disruptive and annoying. Thank you in advance for any help :This is the error message.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. This App Can't Open :)

    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)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!

    This App Can't Open

    Can I customize the list of suggest apps in the "Open with" menu?

    You can't use it to add additional programs, only to set default programs.

    Interestingly for me it shows nothing for text files:

    Then if I want to add a portable app like Jarte Plus to open with context menu windows doesn't like it.

    It's not present and is near impossible to add even via "look for an app on this PC"

    OpenWithAdd to the rescue:
