    Windows 10 Default apps issue


    Alright so at my stupidity I was following the instructions of a xbox live support representive with my xbox app they told me to run a powershell command that deleted all my apps and then run this other powershell command to restore my apps. I have been trying to get my apps to restore ever since then and I have no restore points to go back to or anything. The only option is to restore windows 10 which I do not want to go through the trouble of doing that.

    So basically here is the situation when I run the command in powershell to get the apps back it comes back like this.

    It does that for every app.

    Now my apps also look like this in the start menu.

    Power shell has a bug in it since last upgrade and members have posted warning about it I believe.
    Look in my signature about how to do a SFC Command repair
    Also an in place upgrade keeping all your settings

    I am afraid you don't have another feasible option besides doing a Repair Install.

    And does that fix the problem ?
    If yes, please mark your thread as solved.
