    Windows Desktop Apps/Store Issue


    I have done a fresh installation of Windows 10 and am having a few issues.

    First noticed the issues when I pressed "Start" and typed "Calc" to open the calculator. It would open, to a grey screen for a seconde or two then close again. Now, the following Windows Desktop Apps have issues:


    The Calc and Photos app will not open at all. I will click on the icon from my start menu and nothing happens.
    When trying to access the store, the icon is blue (with no actual icon inside, just a blue square) and nothing opens. I am keen not to reinstall again (or run recovery).

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Daymondeo, Welcome to Ten Forums. Try to get the store working first. That may clear up the other app issues. This is from the tutorial forum. .
