    Windows 10 'Accessories Files'?


    I have my new laptop (only 5 months old) which has Windows 10. I have been used to using Windows XP, Windows 8.1 and now I find that Windows 10 is not that user-friendly!


    I searched for the 'snippit tool' (which has apparently been re-named as 'snip and sketch')', however, it was not on my laptop, then the more I read about it I came to the conclusion that I should have 'Windows Accessories' files installed...… I have found the 'mspaint' file but it wont open? I have followed several instructions as to where to find the 'Accessories' files but I haven't had any success with what I've read about the issue? (Note: I have tried to download the 'snip and sketch' software from Microsoft but the only thing that downloads is the 'icon' for it???)


    Where can I find the Windows 10 'Accessories' files on my laptop? Also...… there is, apparently a Microsoft Office package which can be downloaded for completely FREE???, I don't really understand but apparently there are two versions: the completely free version and the version which has to be purchased??? (what is all that about)???? Please help???

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Now, please follow the below suggested methods and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Method 1:

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow

    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps to employ the DISM command lines:


    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.

    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Method 2:

    If issue persist, kindly follow the below given steps and check if it helps:

    Run these commands:


    • Press Windows key and type Powershell
      in search, right click on it and Open as administrator .

    • Type the following command in Powershell and hit enter:

      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Hope the above information was helpful. If you need further assistance, please do let us know and we would be happy to help you further.
