Windows 10: Cannot open any app from Search

    Cannot open any app from Search

    I can open any files with no issue.

    SFC, DISM, and the repair useing app manifest doesn't help.

    I did get a little too happy with delete folders from system apps. Wondering which I would need to restore.

    Hello, I understand you can't start universal apps (like Groove, Photos..) if use Cortana's search e.g. Photos as here.

    Can you start all the apps from the Start Menu? E.g. Photos?

    If not, I suggest you need to do an in-place upgrade repair install (which keeps all programs and most settings).

    More when you reply. Thanks.
