  3. Calculator Will not Open

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.


    • Are you facing this issue on a local account or the Microsoft account?

    • Are you facing this issue with the built in calculator or the calculator app?
    If it is a built in Calculator I would suggest you to check if you can open and check the status.


    • Press Windows + R keys.

    • Type calc and hit Enter
      and check the status if its opening.
    I would also suggest you to try creating a new user account
    and check if issue persists.

    Click on the below link to check how to create new user account in Windows 10

    Microsoft Support link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/create-a-local-user-account-in-windows-10

    Note:Install all the pending updates after logging in to Microsoft account and check.

    Window s10 displaying that you need an app to open calculator

    Stock calculator app opens and closes immediately

    Hello NestorR_WPG,

    I'm John an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you. I want to apologize if you encountered this issue. I understand you have a problem with Calculator. Did you mean the Calculator app?

    **Run the troubleshooter:

    Select the Start button, and then select Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot, and then from the list select Windows Store apps > Run the troubleshooter.

    **Reset the Microsoft Store cache

    Press the Windows Logo Key + R to open the Run dialog box, type wsreset.exe, and then select OK.

    Note

    A blank Command Prompt window will open, and after about ten seconds the window will close and Microsoft Store will open automatically.

    Press Start then search Apps and Features

    Search Calculator app on the list

    Click then select Advanced options

    Click Terminate then Reset

    Run the Calculator app again

    If it doesn't work, Select Calculator App in Apps and Features then Click Uninstall

    Open Microsoft Store then search for Calculator App

    Click Get and Install

    Launch again your Calculator

    I hope this helps! Kindly inform me if my suggestions does not solve the problem. I can provide another solution for you to try.

    Sincerely



    Independent Advisor
