    Missing apps and features in Windows 10 after app crash

    Okay, so here's the problem:

    I was playing Asphalt 8: Airborne (which I downloaded from the Windows 10 store), and it crashed. When I tried reopening it, it didn't start.

    After restarting my computer, I found that a few things were changed/missing. Some apps on my taskbar were missing icons/didn't start (Sticky notes, Windows 10 mail, Windows 10 store, Microsoft edge) and I couldn't find them anywhere on my computer. This seems to be affecting games and apps from Windows (e.g. no Windows 10 mail, or any games from the store)

    I tried restarting again, but then the apps were not just missing icons on my taskbar, they weren't anywhere on it. My start menu had changed as well. Instead of showing an alphabetical list of apps AND a window of tiles (news, apps etc.), it now just shows the alphabetical list of apps. My start menu settings are set to show the window of tiles, and I've even set it to show an extended version to no avail.

    I've also tried running a CMD command (can't remember the exact name, something about system integrity or something) which was recommended to me on another site, but nothing changed.

    Ideally, I'd like to get my missing apps back, and return the start menu back to normal, but I'd be fine with just my missing apps back, too.

    Any help much appreciated!


    Turns out these apps still seemed to be on my computer, just not visible or search able. I got a email notification on my desktop, and upon clicking it, my computer opened onto the Mail app. I used 10AppsManager to reinstall the Windows apps, and I got them all back, games included. Now the only problem is the taskbar...
