    How to Reinstall and Re-register All Built-in Windows Apps in Windows 8 and 10

    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you how to reinstall and re-register all built-in Windows apps for your user account or all user accounts in Windows 8 or Windows 10.

    Note   Note
    If a Windows app is already installed, then you will see a red error message in PowerShell letting you know for each one.

    If you uninstalled an app for all user accounts, then this will not reinstall the app.

    If you are not able to reinstall your app, then you will need to install your app from the Store instead.

ID:	18500 What about this one? My apps all show little 'crosses' at the bottom of the tiles and won't install back, and when you go to all apps it says 'error' next to each and every modern app.

    Hello Dhruvansh, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The error messages indicate a "low memory" issue. Are you real low on free space for the Windows hard drive? Do you have the page file enabled, and set to be managed by the system or set to be large enough?

    Hey thanks, I had about 6 GB In the C drive out of 48 and 25 GB out of 100 in the E drive. Page file I think was set to be managed by system. Tho I investigated this more (it was getting really annoying) and in another user profile the apps worked brilliantly. I assume there may have been a registry error. I've reinstalled Windows anyways since well it was way overdue, the thing is like 8 years old... Thanks for the help tho!

    I do not know what happened to my system when I tried this. It removed Spartan and windows explorer. Thank God for Macrium Reflect. No damage done.
