    Windows System Apps Renamed


    Hi,

    Here's the question, details after.


    How do I rename/restore Windows system apps such as File Explorer, Control Panel, etc.?


    Alright so I did something kind of stupid. The Microsoft store was giving me the error "Try again later, something happened at our end", so I decided to uninstall and reinstall Store using Powershell with the following commands:


    Get-AppxPackage -name *WindowsStore* | Remove-AppxPackage


    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    Before you yell at me, I followed an article and DO NOT know anything about which commands do what in Powershell. So I guess I had it coming.

    Now I'm stuck with apps having a (1) at the end.

    The apps are:


    File Explorer, Control Panel, computer, OneDrive, Run, Windows PowerShell ISE, Windows PowerShell ISE (x86).


    You'll probably tell me that it doesn't matter and it's not important, but it's really annoying for me as I like everything to be perfect.

    Is there a way to remove the (1) at the end or restore them or whatever without losing any data?


    Thank you for your help.

    :)

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    I think I'll put a list of people's favourite apps in the OP, starting with my own until I get some suggestions, but you can take a look at the Windows Phone app store at the top apps to see what's popular Windows Phone-Apps – Microsoft Store

    You are both now added, welcome! *Toast :toast:
