  1. Windows Apps not working after resetting


    My laptop wasn't working properly and some of the apps like File Explorer etc, were not responding. Hence, I decided to Reset my PC.

    I performed the Reset with the option Keep My Files.

    But after the reset all my Windows App stopped working, many apps have just disappeared. Start Menu is totally empty. Even Microsft Edge and MS Store are not working because of which I am not able to connect or make anything run.

    Please help.

    :)

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows Apps not working after resetting :)

    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)
