  1. Windows 10 Default Apps not working


    it's been days I can't run default Apps in my PC, I have followed the solutions from several peoples but no one works. I am not a technician. i don't know what to do. I cannot run Apps like Defualt Photo & Video Viewer, Maps, Camera, Xbox, Microsoft Store, Microsoft Office. When I clicked that Apps, there was no response. Here are some pictures that might make it clearer. What solution do I need?

    Windows 10 forgets default apps

    I have noticed like not 5mins ago that Winamp just got kicked out of my default apps list in Windows 10 Pro.
    I installed this installation not max 3 weeks ago with fresh downloaded Windows 10 Pro using Microsoft Media Creation Tool, is there a way to fix this bcs I using sfc /scannow don't do a lot for me and I have run it before on this installation.

    Before u ask, I have fully updated my Windows 10 with all non-insider/beta updates.

    The only thing I have disabled is the uac prompt that popup when u need admin for applications to run bcs it's simply annoying.

    I don't remember having all these problems with Windows 8.1 Pro when i was using that and I am really thinking about going back so I can have "fully control" over Windows again with like disabling all the admin crap bcs I feel like it's messing more up and makes things less useful in Windows 10 with all these small problems I have and I read a lot of ppl having problems with various things time and time again where they needed to reinstall Win10 over and over to get it to work fully.

    Any advice on how I can get Windows 10 to just work as a "daily driver" without all these small annoying things? *Frown Windows 10 Default Apps not working :(
