    I am unable to change the default apps to the normal apps, they are set to Twinui and will not change when selecting another app. It just keeps reverting back to Twinui.

  3. my default apps have been substituted by twinui

    Yup, did the trick for me too. Originally I was able to choose the app I wanted from the list for those set as TWINUI, but Settings crashed when trying to apply the change.

    • Open Mail, close, Photos, close, Films & TV, close, Groove Music, close, Edge, close.
    • Go back to Default Apps, all your TWINUIs should be replaced with the normal default, which you can now change.

    Thanks for absolutely nothing M$. Creating another user account or restoring my system is NOT a solution to what is obviously a simple error.

    Thanks @MikeZ123

    Unable to change default apps, as it switches back to TWINUI

    TWINUI in place of some default apps


    After upgrading several systems, on a couple of them I ran into an issue where instead on the standard Windows 10 default apps being listed for such things as Maps, Music Player, Photo Viewer, etc., "TWINUI" was listed. Fortunately it was easy to fix. All you have to do is open the standard default app, close it, go back to Settings, and it was miraculously fixed. It seemed to happen when going into a second user after the initial user setup completed and completing the setup for the second user.
