    Mail and Calendar crash and no ability to add accounts

    Hello. I have been using Windows 10 (home) for a while and I know my way around generally. Today, I'm having a weird issue with Mail and Calendar apps as both started to crash without any apparent reason. I tried to remove them (using powershell) and reinstalled from Store then I was not able to add any accounts to either. Both apps freeze on the window where I should start creating the accounts with the respective button inactive and then the app crash after a couple of minutes. Here are some screen-shots to show the problem:

    Both apps are the latest versions and I have no pending updates in either the Store or Windows Update. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    For an unknown reason, both apps started to work fine the next day on their own. It may have been a glitch but I still would be happy to know and learn about that issue.
