Windows 10: Calendar and Mail

    Calendar and Mail

    The calendar and mail apps that came with Windows 10 on my main PC is non-functional, I cannot enter events in the calendar and I cannot receive or send emails in the mail app. I uninstalled them via Powershell and reinstalled them via the Windows store and still the same result. The two apps work perfectly fine on my laptop, tablet and other PC. Are there regedit or other ways to fix this? I know it's a fairly common problem for some people.

    Hi, suggest maybe:
    Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Launch an elevated Command Prompt
    Run these commands:

    • SFC /scanNow
      if this reports any integrity errors, post a screen shot.
      Then run the next command
    • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
      if this reports any integrity errors, post a screen shot.

    (These will take some time to run).

    Doesn't seem to be anything wrong.

    I noted the email account doesn't have to be a Google account for Calendar to work- any account will do for that.
    One article seems to focus on Google too much.

    One more thought- how have you logged in- with a live account (MS account with email address) or as a local user?

    Using a Live email account also tried with Google account as well. Like I said it works on my other devices. Windows however is local account (on all my devices).

    Ok, assuming you've researched this and sought solutions, some users have experienced weird effects associated with 3rd party shell extensions. Try Nirsoft's shellexview, and start by hiding all MS entries (as you don't want to disable these!) and then disable all others, and see if that has any effect. (No need to log off or shut down).

    If no change, enable all again- and then you need another way forward.

    Otherwise use a 'binary chop' approach to identify offending extensions:

    Click on options and then tick "Hide all Microsoft Extensions". That should get rid of most. (Pink just means not Microsoft btw).

    Then select all, right click and disable. See if the problem is fixed. If so then enable them one by one (or half at a time if you've lots) until you find the one causing the issue.

    If no joy, check what happens with a clean boot (disable all startups).

    Still no go on these solutions.

    I basically resorted to using Office 2016's Outlook for now.
