    Start menu does not open after Power Shell Command

    So my mail app was not opening links. So I looked up how to reinstall the mail app. Got to this:

    I uninstalled the apps, then ran the powershell command: Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} to reinstall the mail app.

    A bunch of red errors appeared in the prompt and now my start menu, notifications, onedrive,... won't work.

    How do I restore these functions? sfc also does not work in Powershell but does work in CMD. Also, it does nothing.

    Hi, unfortunately this seems to be a known bug which MS is puzzled about (from what I read elsewhere) and this is the typical consequence of running this command.

    Two options:
    1. restore from your most recent disk image. (Everyone needs to use disk imaging - Aomei Backupper or Macrium Reflect - both free - a lesson only learnt after some suffering for too many people, alas).

    If you don't use disk imaging (yet) then

    2. In place upgrade repair install using a Win 10 installation medium
    (See Tutorials for a guide if unsure).
