    Calculator Missing... ?


    Am on Win 10 Pro and suddenly now the inbuilt calculator program seems missing.
    Please inform how to restore the program that comes by default.

    Thx

    Hello Craige,

    Calculator is now a Windows Store app.

    You can check in Start > All Apps > Calculator to see if you may have it.

    I swear I checked it in app list and it wasn't there yesterday! Lol, its here and retrieved successfully !

    On the side note: I the future upgrade/fresh install of win 10? can I expect calculator to be missing and have to download it separately from the store ?

    If yes, how to make sure it is the default calc I am downloading (never used store except once before)

    The Calculator app is included in Windows 10 by default, so it should be there after an upgrade or clean install.

    If you should ever need to reinstall the app, it is called Windows Calculator in the Microsoft Store.

    Reinstall and Re-register Apps in Windows 10

    There is the Old Windows 7 Calculator if you do not want the 10 app. Downloads / Tools by other people / Old Calculator for Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8

    It seems this is a "Known issue" just added for Windows 10 build 19008.

    Cumulative Update KB4527587 Windows 10 v1903 build 19008.1000 Oct. 24

    [ADDED] Preinstalled apps (like Calculator) are missing from the Apps & Features page in Settings.

    Start - Run - calc - works on every Windows since XP, no matter, where it is hidden.

    Still resides in System32, whether it's installed or not, clicking on the exe will install it...
