    I understand there's red text if an app is currently in use, but what if it says:

    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CF6, Package could not be registered.
    error 0x8000FFFF: Adding a tile failed with unexpected error.
    NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId] a967256b-2c45-0002-782a-67a9452cd101 in the Event Log
    or use the command line Get-AppxLog -ActivityID a967256b-2c45-0002-782a-67a9452cd101
    At line:1 char:38

    Interesting. Could that be for an app that you uninstalled for all users?

    And now I can't get into my Start menu! Windows Updating it doesn't work. Trying to reinstall using Powershell doesn't help.
    How do I get my Start Menu back?

    I'd recommend doing a repair install.

    I don't know why, but I lost my photo and music apps. Kept getting error messages: "MS-WIndows-Store Purge Caches", and some other messages.
    I followed the instructions on the first page of this thread using Powershell. Now everything works properly again, thanks.

    Hello fareez, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you needed to repair those apps, then you could do a repair install without losing anything.

    A little addition for those struggling to restore just some apps without restoring all (use PowerShell):
    Code:
    • Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore*\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    • Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsCamera*\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    • Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsCalculator*\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    • Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsAlarms*\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    • Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Windows.Photos*\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
    The syntax to remove all apps but some (several exclusions) is:
    1) for current user:
    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*calculator*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*photos*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*scan*’} | Remove-AppxPackage
    2) for all current users:
    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*calculator*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*photos*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*scan*’} | Remove-AppxPackage
    3) for core system account:
    Code:
    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage –online | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*calculator*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*photos*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*scan*’} | where-object {$_.name –notlike ‘*store*’} | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -online
    Tested and working in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14322.

    Hello username1,

    If you like, there's a new built-in feature in Windows 10 for resetting only specific apps. :)
