    Recently my Windows 10 was upgraded but apps don't work


    Recently upgraded my Windows laptop to Version 2004/OS Build 19041.45.

    Before upgrade I had a whole lot of stuff on the Desktop. They are all gone (I am sure hiding somewhere). Now I have a couple of shortcuts.
    In the Start program, I have many apps that do not start including the Microsoft Store. How do I restore their functionality?

    However, this idea worked. I created a new user for the windows and when logged in as the new user all apps are totally functional. This is just a temporary work around. I want a permanent solution.
    I have also tried to tweak BackgroundIntelligentTransferService. That did not solved the problem. I tried PowerShell.
    This command works:
    PS C:\Users\TEMP> Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsCalculator
    But this throws an exception:
    PS C:\Users\TEMP> Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers
    Get-AppxPackage : Access is denied.
    Access is denied.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-AppxPackage], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Commands.GetAppxPackageComm and

    Is there a EASY way?

    It's good that you tested with a new account, that shows the problem is only there when you sign in with your main account. The missing stuff from the desktop suggests you may have been signed in with a temporary profile. See if this tutorial helps.

    Is this also viable?


    Does the following work?

    Windows Key+X > Windows Powershell (Admin) > Copy the following from below and right click in Powershell to paste > Enter

    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* | Remove-AppxPackage

    Copy the following from below and right click in Powershell to paste > Enter > Reboot your computer

    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}
    ========================================================

    These lines can be run:
    Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers *WindowsStore* | Remove-AppxPackage
