Windows 10: ALL Apps aren't working in Windows 10? Solved

  1.    24 May 2018 #1

    ALL Apps aren't working in Windows 10?

    as already mentioned in the title all of my Windows Apps suddenly stopped working.
    I can click on them and they launch, and for apps with music (for example games) the music is even playing. But they only stay in the "background", won't show on my desktop and I can't access them.
    Any solutions?

    Hello @VRo, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Since they do appear to actually be opened somewhere, you might check using the tutorial below to see if they may be off-screen and able to move them back on-screen.

    thank you for the solution :) I moved back all the apps and now they function properly. However, do you know why this happens?
    Thank you so much!!

    You're most welcome.

    Windows for apps will normally open at the same location as they were when last closed.

    If you had another display connected or made changes to your display layout, it could cause this type of behavior.
