    Uninstalled all default apps and can't reinstall them.


    I uninstalled all the default apps (with CCleaner) knowing that each new build re-installs them. Build 14926 no longer re-installs uninstalled apps. I've tried every means I can find to re-install the apps but nothing works. Can I roll back to previous build (Build 14915), then upgrade to 14926 and have it reinstall the apps? If not can I install build 14393 from iso then upgrade to 14926 without loosing all my previously installed software i.e. Auto Cad, Revit, etc.?

    :)

    Windows 10 mobile default apps reinstall

    Is there no way to uninstall or reinstall the default apps on Windows Mobile 10? I would rather Microsoft updated its default apps because after auto update the apps appear on all apps list.

    Some of the default apps are missing from the apps list on my phone but it shows on storage (apps and games). When I search the apps on store it says installed or launch. Every time I want to use the apps I have to connect to internet and lauch the app from
    Microsoft Store. But the apps appeared on the list only after I uninstalled and reinstalled. But In case of default apps, I can't uninstall or reinstall.

    Please Microsoft, please find a way so that the default apps could be uninstalled and reinstalled or provide prompt updates to the default apps.

    Some of the key default apps like phone, photo etc do not appear on the all apps list. For making a call I have to open "people". I can't dial to any number. Disappointed!!

    Windows 10 mobile

    Version: 1607

    OS build: 10.0.14393.953

  3. Nokia N97 mini v30.0.004

    I just installed the new update and hard reset my phone, I've got some apps Elle, Amazon, Twitter ... etc included by default but I can't uninstall them. It's really annoying.

    I noticed that all of those uninstallable apps were .wgz apps.

    Hi dchapin and welcome to Tenforums.
    Starting with Insider 14926, Windows is no longer reinstalling what you deleted. I think you need to re-register the Windows Store, then install the apps that you want back.
    Code: Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_11606.1001.39.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml"[/quote]

    [/quote] I tried that code, it ran, but the apps didn't come back. However I did lose two or three I hadn't uninstalled. I tried reloading from Windows store but when I click "install" nothing happens. I also uninstalled the app installer.

    What will happen if I use a previous build iso. Will I loose all my installed programs?

    No, you can not perform a repair install using an older version of Windows than what is on the system. You'd have to do a clean install if you're going to use an older ISO.
