  1. Windows Voice Recorder - app doesn't not open


    My Windows Voice Recorder suddenly stopped working yesterday. The app now won't open. This app comes with the Windows operating system and cannot be uninstalled and then reinstalled. Any ideas on how to fix this? Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    :)

    Microsoft Voice Recorder Windows 10 will not open

    For some reason Microsoft Voice Recorder decided it will not open. The icon is still on the start menu, but nothing happens.

    I looked to see if I can uninstall and reinstall but it is not listed with the apps.

    Any suggestions?

    Windows 10 Home edition, HP Desktop Computer

    Thanks for the help.

    Hello Linda,

    Issues with Windows 10 apps can usually be fixed by running the troubleshooter for Windows apps. To do that, you may refer to the link below:

    Run the troubleshooter for Windows apps

    If the problem persists, you may try to reinstall Voice Recorder by doing the following:

    • Type in Powershell in the search field and hit Enter.
    • Right-click on Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.
    • Click on Yes.
    • In the PowerShell box, type in or copy and paste Get-AppxPackage *soundrecorder* | Remove-AppxPackage, and press Enter.
    • Once Voice Recorder is uninstalled, open the Store app, download, and install Voice Recorder.

    Also, we suggest that you refer to the troubleshooting steps for fixing Cortana and Start menu on the link below:
