    Windows 10 empty all apps list


    I'm not sure when this started happening. Might have been after a Windows update and the system reboot. I've been living with it for a couple weeks now.

    When I click All apps in the start menu, the list is empty. The apps in the most used list are still populated and when I install a new app, it shows up as a new app. But when I click All apps, it never shows anything. Just an empty menu with a back button.

    The apps in the tile portion of the start menu show up fine and I'm able to search for apps to launch them, but I'd like to be able to easily go through all the apps I have installed.

    :)

  2. All apps list mostly empty after recovery

    After doing a system recovery and going back 4 days, my list of apps no longer shows Most of my installed apps. I can go to the Windows store and search for the app and click open, which works. That is a bit cludgy. Also, 2 uninstalled apps are constantly
    trying to update, which obviously fails. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is an insider build installed. I just found out that my Windows Mail app no longer works. Also, my option to go back to Windows 7 is gone. No more recoveries to go back
    to. Serious problems here.

  3. All apps list mostly empty after recovery

    Hi Tom,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time.

    • What happens when you try to use Mail app?
    • What error do you get when you try to go back to Windows 7?
    Go to Search, and search for apps which are missing in apps list and check if they show up in Search. Right-click on it to pin to Start menu.

    For update fail and Mail app issue, try the steps below.

    Run the troubleshooter for Windows apps:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/run-the-troubleshooter-for-windows-apps

    Check for updates for apps from Windows Store and install if you find any.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/check-for-updates-for-apps-and-games-from-windows-store#

    I suggest you to try the steps below and check if it helps.

    • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
    • Click File > Run New Task.
    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”.
    • Type CMD.
    • Type the following 4 commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannow

      powershell

      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    • Close the CMD window.
    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    For go back issue:

    Do not try the following steps because it will disable Go Back feature on Windows 10:

    • Refresh.
    • Reset.
    • Disk Cleanup (if it touched Windows.old or $windows.~bt).
    • Manually deleting files within Windows.old or $windows.~bt
    • Running on battery (must be plugged in).
    • If external device was used during upgrade to store Go Back data – the customer must have it to perform a Go Back.

    I don't have a good answer for you.
    If and after you have exhausted your search for a solution, consider using system restore and pick a date that is at least 2+ weeks ago as your restore point.
