    windows 10

    reinstalled windows apps

    hello i re-intalled the windows builtin apps that came with windows 10 using the following code:
    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    now in my menu list at the bottom under the catagory of Other i have a bunch of listings that just sit there. i click on them, and nothing happens. and i cant uninstall them. anyone have any idea's.

    i used the above code trying to get windows mail and calander to work again. they work but that other catagory at the end of the app list is bugging me...

    Hi, this has been reported a number of times here.
    That powershell command actually breaks apps from some point after build 10586, and this is being investigated apparently.

    Your way forward is either
    a. restore a disk image (you are using disk imaging, aren't you? Very strongly recommended.. Win 10 is more fragile, it seems.).
    b. do an in place upgrade install (a good repair technique and a feature especially helpful in Win 10).

    This will
    a. Allow you to keep all your programs
    b. disable system restore (so you have to enable it again)
    c. may change 1 or two associations
    d. may mean you have to set up your WiFi connection again
    e. may affect any language changes you have made
