Windows 10: edge & xbox app suddenly close when trying to open; cortana responds O
edge&xbox app close when opening; cortana responds ONLY @1st
I didnt find a subforum that really fit problem, so if its in the wrong place my apologies &feel free to move it.
I have a toshiba laptop upgraded to windows 10. Suddenly about a week ago my start menu, Cortana, & several other windows apps (calculator, etc) stopped opening at all. I did a system restore to about a week before. System restore took an unusually extremely long time but seemed to work.
NOW Cortana responds to Hey Cortana, but then the little corner cortana box just sits there, & cortana never speaks.
My start menu opens normal but my xbox app (which i use quite a lot) acts like its going to open, but before I see anything other than the green background it closes (no notification or anything). It does the same thing if i click one of my notifications in the menu that comes from the icon on my taskbar.
Same happens with Edge (from any place including: startmenu, desktop, & taskbar).
Calculator, Word, etc all seem to work fine.
I thought I'd try restoring to previous time again however though i had 3 different restore point options when i restored the 1st time (&i had chosen the most recent), it shows no previous restore points & shows no space being used for restore storage!
Ive found some similar problems when i tried searching for solutions, however they all had AVAST installed, which i do not.
Could anybody help me with a good solution? Thank you very much for your time & assistance.

UPDATE: I was told at microsofts support to check to see if I gotten the upgrade. I looked and it showed failed on 11/16. They had me manually upgrade the build. It took forever but finally finished. Now my xbox app works but CORTANA doesnt even respond to "hey Cortana" & EDGE does still the same thing! grrrrrrrrr Its also been really slow/laggy in EVERYTHING I do since I did the build upgrade.
I've searched the forum, but haven't been able to find a solution that works. In a nutshell, I can't open "This PC" or any other folder that is on my desktop. File Explorer won't function either. Whether I double-click, or do a...
Spent the best part of a day fixing my PC after a W10 upgrade this morning.
All seems to be working well now except that I have an issue with a couple of Metro apps - those named in the title.
What happens is that the apps open and then...

Hey everyone, so my friend and I updated Windows 7 to Windows 10 today. We have set up Cortana, but mine acts differently than his. When I say "Hey Cortana" she responds with a beep, and then I can ask questions. However, my friend can start a...
