Windows 10: Privacy - background apps query Solved

    Privacy - background apps query

    I wanted to turn off Edge, so went to settings / privacy - and clicked on running background apps.
    My other pc's show a fairly comprehensive list, but this Windows 10. 32 bit laptop shows just one entry for Skype.
    Any thoughts how I can restore the anticipated list.

    Hello Colin, :)

    Resetting the app will have it show up in the background apps list afterwards.
