  2. Timeline Activity not showing up

    The timeline activity just won't show up on the timeline window. I always get "Use your PC more for activities."

    I have enabled the settings required for timeline in Privacy > Activity History:

    Let Windows collect my activities

    Let Windows Sync my activities

    Show activities from accounts

    I also tried using regedit to add these variables in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System

    • EnableActivityFeed
    • PublishUserActivities
    • UploadUserActivities
    All the variables are set to 1, and are DWORD values. (as stated in this article Timeline feature not working in Windows 10), to no effect.

    Any more troubleshooting steps I can go through?

    Timeline under PEOPLE shows nothing

    It's possible that some system files for the People app needs to be re-registered. To do that, we suggest following these steps:


    • Right-click the Start button.

    • Click Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Copy and paste the following command: PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *People*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage
      -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"
      and press Enter.

    • Once it's finished, close the Command Prompt and check if Timelines are available on the app.



    Gice us an update on what happens after re-registering the People app.
