    Windows 10 requires me to 'Open app with' on EVERY app I open


    Hello,
    I had a problem some time in the past and I managed to solve it via the help of the internet, but I changed some kind of option or so and now, whenever I try to open anything it requires me to "Open app with", even when I started windows today it gave me a error related to system32 or something but finally managed to start up. Even when I try to start task manager it gives me an error, when I opened chrome it required me to select chrome from the list in order to open it.
    The problem is irritating and sometimes it slows or stops my work, I would very much appreciate your help in order to turn back whatever I changed before.

    Thank you very much in advance,

    Robert.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.


    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows 10 requires me to 'Open app with' on EVERY app I open :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    Hey Shawn,
    I did that to no avail, then I ran WSReset.exe; now I'm good on all 3, Mail, Calendar and People! *Confused
    Go figure!

    default apps not opening in windows 10

    Hi,

    • Run the SFC.
    Follow the below steps:


    • Open Command Prompt.

    • Select “Run as Administrator”.

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • I would suggest you to run the App troubleshooter and check if that fixes the issue.
    a. Open Control Panel and click on troubleshooting.

    b. Click on View All. Click on Windows Apps. Follow the on-screen instructions.
