    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
    + ...  | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.I ...

    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.
