Windows 10: Apps Not Working In One Account Solved

    Apps Not Working In One Account

    I've been having problems in one of my accounts so I restored the account profile from backup.

    The account appears to work but I now have a problem with the Windows Apps only in this account. There is no Store App !! and several of the default apps are missing.

    So far I've tried:

    1. Running the Apps Troubleshooter
    2. Running WSRESET
    3. Download from Microsoft to Desktop. From admin powershell enter
      • Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
      • cd C:\Users\YourUserName\Downloads
      • .\reinstall-preinstalledApp.ps1 This will execute the script and all your default preinstalled Store apps will get reinstalled. If you try to install an app that is already installed, it will be skipped without an error. Now check if the app has been reinstalled and can be launched.
      • Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSigned

    None of the above has worked. Are there any other fixes apart from a repair install?
