    Calculator is missing


    Upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10 last week. The old calculator was removed, but I can't find the new calculator or any calculator.

    FYI: I currently use Classic Shell - because I hate the tile interface. The calculator is not in any program group.

    The calculator is not under any folder group it's just a universal application. It's installed by default on all systems and I have yet to find a simple way to uninstall it, I tried.

    It's likely located under C:\Program Files\WindowsApps but going into such folder will require changing folders permission settings which I am not in the mood of personally doing.

    key and type: calculator
    if nothing shows up update to the latest classic shell if there is a new version available. If there is not, uninstall classic shell temporarily to verify that calculator is actually in the system.
    This is likely an incompatibility with classic shell and window store applications.

    It's that flat grey thing.

    Microsoft still let you download Calculator plus: Download Microsoft Calculator Plus from Official Microsoft Download Center, which is a horrible blue thing, with really bad plastic lookalike oval buttons, but with classic view can look like the old XP calc.exe (which still runs in windows 10 if you have XP on your system) as in the screenshot:Click image for larger version.

    Instead of using the Metro App calculator, you can install a classic desktop calculator.
    Here is a good free one "Microsoft Calculator Plus"
    It has standard, scientific and conversion modes.

    Because it's not an app, it appears in the list of programs in the left column of the start menu.
    First thing I do is go to its View menu and change to classic view instead of it's groovy skin.

    Ooops, I just noticed Fafhrd has already mentioned it (blushes)

    That's OK, OldAussie - seems you and I think alike. The currency conversion feature is a bit naff tho

    Another option is at http://winaero.com/download.php?view.1795. It is the old Windows 7 calculator with an installer.
