    Modern apps crash (including windows store)

    Hey I'm the owner of a SB. Already a first time my start menu, doesnt appeared I lost a full day + one night to fix the bug, SFC /scannow didnt work neither health restore but I get it worked by this solution (seemingly the bug always existed but Microsoft just leave it, like oftenly...). This worked but as I couldn't access to my installed modern apps except directly from the store (all modern apps diseapeared from all app lists and from search) I finaly restore to an prior restore point. This worked but I experienced the bug A SECOND but the method again but lose all access to modern apps so I try a restore point but the only available (seemingly the OS keep just 1 save ??) was even more buggy. So I tried few codes that we find on internet to reinstall all apps and that we put in powershell Heres the code: Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest*.xml"} like this. I also do nfc /scannow or something like that which didn't work even with restore health but who finaly worked after I use an modified ISO but without fix anything. But now I'm thinking that after 3 days of my life waste I don't find the solution my problem. I just can't launch the majority of modern apps and livetile doesn't work also, the majority show just only one color in their tiles with weird title as @{microsoft[etc...]}. On other accounts windows store show splash screen before crash and other moderns apps seems to work. I don't want to create a new account and, obviously, neither reset

    Thanks if you read me

    Hi, Using
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest*.xml"}
    in the last few weeks breaks a number of universal apps, alas.

    Recovery: Either
    a. restore from a recent disk image (Everyone needs to use disk imaging as Windows is easily broken)
    or (if you haven't yet started to use disk imaging)
    b. an in-place upgrade repair install (which keeps everything)

    Great.. if happy, please click the thumbs up.

    Ok, here's the faster way and the strongly recommended way by all here to defend yourself against most problems.. from cryptolocker to (oh no.. user error!).

    Start using disk imaging. Regularly. Before any major change, and after a big change or a series of smaller changes. System Restore isn't enough.. it can help sometimes, but only if you turn it on (it's off by default.. absurd).

    Get a copy of Macrium Reflect or Aomei Backupper (both free options). The first is more geeky and a cut down version of a commerical product - no incremental backup. The 2nd is more straightforward, offering both differential and incremental. (You can read about htose yourself if unsure). Make sure you create the boot disk.. essential when dealing with an unbootable PC.

    With disk images you
    a. Can restore disk/partition in a defined time (e.g 20 to 40 mins).
    b. Have a full backup - can extract files.
    c. Can use them to rebuild your system on a new HDD (e.g.)
    d. Have peace of mind (most important!)

    Actually for the third time I HAVE THE BUG !! Do there's a way top know why is that specifig to my computer (I do something wrong, a logiciel etc.) ? And tough I activated the restauration point it doesnt save automaticaly , and that's a shame, so can I auto do restore point ? Do there is a better way to fix my menu start on new build (old methods doesnt work) ?? It's really disapoiting to spend all the time I've not really on fix a buggy OS espiacaly that's SB hardware is just incredibly good, but I just can't use it most of time. And do Windows communicated on a possible fix (1 year to fix a bug it's a lot even for Microbug...) ?

    Hi, sorry to hear that.
    Restore points can be created automatically if you schedule a task to run a script- at least that's what I do.

    There's no way I know of to do that just in Windows, and they don't seem to be created now in conjunction with Windows updates.
    These may be helpful:
    Restore Point Context Menu - Add in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    System Restore Point shortcut - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    You can create them manually, using the Windows GUI, the script (much easier) or the context menu (see above).

    I have no idea why you're experiencing the problem.. one could only guess.
    I've never lost the start menu, but have had problems with Cortana

    For example:
    - what have you been changing?
    - have you changed a lot of settings (be very cautious, Privacy and Language settings, for example, can have unexpected consequences)

    I've not experienced issues because of installing or uninstalling desktop problems: I don't use the Win 10 start menu. I have (albeit with relative difficulty) changed the language from US to UK.

    I do maintain disk images as a precaution, + a daily restore point.

    When I run into a problem I restore a disk image, then, using the simple log I maintain of changes, repeat the changes made since that image. I keep things I've downloaded, so can reinstall them (unless a giveaway licensing period has expired e.g.).

    So I suggest the way to track what's happening might be to
    a. use disk imaging
    b. restore your system to a functional state
    c. maintain a simple log

    However, if the problem occurs because of sthg already installed on your PC, rather than a change you make, all you can do is note when the problem occurs and what you've recently done.

    Meanwhile, as a matter of routine, run
    chkdsk C: /F
    from an elevated command prompt.

    Your recovery options remain either restoring a disk image or an in place upgrade repair.
    The latter will likely
    - turn off system restore
    - need you to reconnect your WiFi (password)
    - may affect an association or two
    - change your language back to default

    Okay so I'll make shortcut or context menu of restore point. About the question, the bug with the start menu, notification panel and all modern apps which don't open happens in a random moment (when my PC get off by himself once but most of time when I just use my PC). About the settings, yes I did change keyboard layout, maybe some privacy language and set language to FR. I did an chkdsk. In place ugrade repair with iso didnt fix anything, but change the folder tiledatalayer fix once again the problem but it still bring another problem : my layout of start menu is reset (and I use bothy PC and tablet mode as I ve a surface book). And in all apps I don't have new application, usually to fix the problem I would have did the script but as you said it breaks everything on new builds. Good thing as I knew that I'll have the bug again and again I save my tiledatalayer few days before (my layout of application is still reset but I've the apps I had the day of save in all apps). I hope one day somebody of microsoft will move one of this fat finger to try to fix the bug. I don't understand that, tough that the bug is reported since 1 year, Microgarbage didn't take any time to fix it before global release. Thanks a lot for all help
