  1. Windows Apps files broken/missing.


    Hi, I'm Max and I got a problem. Few days ago I tried to gain permission to my WindowsApps folder from trustedInstaller. I tried it, and like 90% of files was converted to mine, but that 10% was still linked with TrustedInstaller because they were System files or something like that. I just screwed it up. Then I tried to delete that file, but that didn't work too. Only few files got deleted and now that folder takes only ~120MB of space. Every windows app started to turn off immediately. Calculator, Microsoft store etc. just turns off instantly whenever I click on it. Icons are gone too. Those apps don't even exist when I go to settings->applications->applications & feature and search for it on my C: drive. I tried literally everything: command prompt, windows powershell.

    Nothing works. So here comes my question - if I run Windows refresh, will this WindowsApps folder get fix? Or I have to reset whole windows I don't want to. With my slow wifi downloading those games will take forever.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows Apps files broken/missing. :)

    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)
