    sfc /scannow runs fine. I was hoping someone could advise me of the commands to reset a single offending app. I''ll try the reset function after 2nd Aug then create a new user account of that doesn't work. I know a clean install is the way to go but it takes so much time to sort out.

    Steve,

    You can use the command below in a command prompt to reset only the "Get Started" app.

    Code:
    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *getstarted*).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

    Hello jk22,

    Yeah, not all apps support this feature. If you like, you can do OPTION TWO for Calculator to effectively reset it as well.

    No. It will only reinstall and re-register the Calculator app.

    This tutorial is incorrect. on Windows 10 Pro, there is no 'apps and features' in settings. I even tried the 'search for a setting' and it still does not show up.
