Windows 10: Some apps not working Solved

    Some apps not working


    Hi !
    On my desktop computer, after migrating to Windows 10, from Windows 7, and solving a lot of problems, I still have one I did not succeed to correct.
    I cannot open two Apps, Mail and Calendar, apparently tied under the same apps "Communications". I have uninstalled them according to the process described in the Tutorial "Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10", i.e. removing the related line in Windows Shell. After checking they had disappeared from the start menu and from the related page of settings, I reinstalled them along the process described in the Tutorial "APPS - Install from my Library in Store". The two have reappeared in the start menu and the settings page. Unfortunately, I still cannot open them. I also made a reset of Windows Store with not any result.
    Incidentally, on my laptop computer, where I migrated to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, the two apps are working.
    If there is someone who can help me solve my problem, I would be very grateful.
    All the best !

    This probably is not the solution.
    However, please check and make sure you have all Windows Updates available installed.

    You may not like my suggestion.....................
    Do a Repair Install using this tutorial :
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Or,

    Try my "simplified" method.................
    Download the Win 10 iso from one of the 2 links below
    Media Creation Tool ( MCT ) :
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Tech Bench
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench

    Using MCT as example................
    Download the Tool and run it.
    Then select
    Create installation media for another PC
    That will begin downloading the ISO file to your computer.
    When download is completed, RIGHT click at the ISO > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    That will begin installing Windows 10.
    You have the choice of keeping settings, files and apps, or keeping nothing.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.

    Thank you davidhk

    1- Available updates are installed.
    2- You were right, I do not like the idea of upgrading for a minor problem. I prefer to wait for serious disfonction that eventually may occur to use your suggestion.
    Nevertheless, thanks once again.
    All the best.

    I understand.
    You are not missing much anyway.
    Use whatever email program you have been using.

    mminos,

    Give this a go...................
    Create another user account, same status ( admin, I presume ) as the one you are now using.
    Logon to it and see if you have the same issue.

    Hi davidhk,
    This is just to inform you that I finally decided to perform a repair install as you recommanded. My apps are working since then.
    Thanks once again and my best regards.
