  1. Unable to launch Windows 10 Apps


    Each time I try to launch apps such as Paint 3D, Calculator, 3D Viewer, Sticky Notes, their logo flashes briefly, then the app shuts down without any on-screen error message or Event Viewer entry. Here are the things I tried to fix the problem:

    • sfc.exe /scannow (in an elevated Command Prompt)
    • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth (ditto)
    • Removed Paint 3D with a PowerShell command, then reinstalled it with this command:
      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Safe Mode
    • Different user account

    None worked. Some apps such as MS Edge still work. All of them used to work until some months ago.


    System description:

    - Windows 10 Professional

    - Version 1809


    Any suggestions?

    :)

    Windows 10 Apps are unable to launch

    Hi Deep,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with launching apps. I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Incorrect App settings.

    • App is corrupt.
    Before starting the troubleshooting steps, I suggest you to install all the available Windows Updates and check if it helps. If not, try these steps:

    Method 1:

    Let's run the app troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to re-register all Windows Store Apps by running the following commands in a CMD window started as Administrator:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register
    "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    Windows 10 Apps are unable to launch

    I tried the steps given and restarted my computer. Now I guess its even worse. There is no response at all after I clicked on all those apps, except for the apps that have just reinstalled which I had uninstalled it long ago. Please reply asap.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
