    Windows 10 Pro Metro Apps don't Open/Have Unusual Names


    Hi there! New to the forums! Been here many times before, but never opened an account until now.

    Anyway, I have some issues with the metro apps in Win 10. They don't open, and have unusual names. This actually started a couple days ago when my taskbar and start menu wouldn't open. While browsing the web for help, I saw somebody with the exact same issue get told to enter a powershell command and he replied saying it fixed it. The command in particular was:
    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Long story short, It did anything but fix it, and gave it messed up names. I can click and click, but nothing shows up, even for a split second. I've tried to open an app from the .exe inside System32.

    Any solution I've crossed, has not worked. Any help appreciated, but fresh install is off the table by all means.

    Hello Eddy, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    This means that your built-in apps included with Windows are broken. You can do a repair install to fix them though.

    Thank you sir, you are a genius! I actually saw this and thought "Nah, I'm not that far in the hole!" but I guess I was. Very nice tutorial too!

    Thanks,
