    i accidental deleted ALL windows 10 modern apps, how to get them back?


    I tried to remove bloatware by running a powershell script and removing all of those modern apps that come with a reinstall but i got rid of the store app as well. i at least need the store to download what i do want. i have tried just about everything to restore them back. all the commands and making another user account to reinstall them. i currently have a backup of my windowsApps from my other computer and tried placing them back and registering them with no luck. anything can do without reinstalling?

    Hi, do you have any usable System Restore points?
    (However, difficulties are sometimes experienced when using System Restore)

    Presumably you mean this doesn't help:

    You can do an in-place upgrade repair install. This keeps all programs and most data, and is probably the most reliable way of fixing your problem.
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    If your current build is the Anniversary Build (14393, 1607) then you need an iso for that. If you use the MS media creation tool now and you are running the Anniversary Build, you will upgrade to the current Creator's build.

    What is your current build?
    Windows key + R, winver

    Note: if you had been using disk imaging routinely as we strongly and repeatedly recommend, you could have restored your PC to a previous working state quickly and without technical help. (Macrium Reflect (free), its boot disk, external storage for disk image sets).

    my build is 14393 windows 10 anniversary with no intent of going to creators.
    system restore points were not enabled at the time of the error ( i had to manually enable it)

    and with that upgrade are you sure i wont loose a single byte of data, apps or programs? I'm really tired of reinstalling windows for my system as i have a ton of data and reinstalling takes me at least 5 days to get back where i was.

    i would love to use a imaging app, i actually have Macrium Reflect but i have no second medium thats big enough for my system.

    Any APPs bought or installed free from Store are still owned by you, all you have to do is to reinstall them again from Store.

    External USB 3.0 HD's are very inexpensive. I have two WD Passport. One 2TB and one 4TB, the silver brushed alum. case models. Stay with Western Digital, fast, reliable and #1 choice of many. You can get WD or Seagate 1TB ext. USB drives for $50 now. I use mine strictly for Backups !!

    Now, in a Run box, type shell:appsfolder and make copies of the UWP Apps and store them somewhere safe; that way if it happens again, you can re-invoke them from there or re-install some from the Store.
