    Calculator app update

    Noticed when I tried to launch Calculator tonight it was just flashing open for a milli second then closing. Went into Windows Store and saw calculator stuck on updating. I paused the update and then clicked the circular arrow to re-download. This then went through and completed. Calculator app now opens fine. Just in case anyone sees similar.

    Not sure why it got stuck on the auto install phase, I've seen this happen before with MS core apps. I have had the PC on and off a couple times this evening so maybe I disrupted the install process at some point. Annoying the Windows 10 does this, it's rare but I like I say has happened before (I think with the photos app a month or two ago)

    it does also perplex me why MS waste time updating the calculator app - how can you improve an app like this, It's just a calculator!

Calculator won't run
Sorry if there is already a thread for this, I couldn't find one... I cannot get the calculator to run, nothing happens. I just upgraded yesterday and it went fine, but this won't work. Maybe it's related to the store hanging? Thanks for any...
