Apps :: Not Working In One Account?

Dec 31, 2015

I've been having problems in one of my accounts so I restored the account profile from backup.

The account appears to work but I now have a problem with the Windows Apps only in this account. There is no Store App !! and several of the default apps are missing.

So far I've tried:

Running the Apps TroubleshooterRunning WSRESETDownload from Microsoft to Desktop. From admin powershell enter Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestrictedcd C:UsersYourUserNameDownloads.

Reinstall-preinstalledApp.ps1 This will execute the script and all your default preinstalled Store apps will get reinstalled. If you try to install an app that is already installed, it will be skipped without an error. Now check if the app has been reinstalled and can be launched.Set-ExecutionPolicy AllSigned

None of the above has worked. Are there any other fixes apart from a repair install?

Apps :: Effect Of Signing Into MS Account To Get Apps If Using Local Account?

Dec 17, 2015

I run my W10 computer using a local account. I want to avoid using a MS account and don't have one set up one the computer at this time. My local account is the only account.

That being said, I was interested in installing a couple of apps from the app store. However, it is requiring that I log in with my MS account to download and install them.

My question is if I log into the MS account to download and install the apps, will that create a new user account of any kind or otherwise mess with my computer settings or user accounts?

Apps :: How To Get Rid Of Game Bar Without A Microsoft Account

Aug 13, 2015

Every time I open a game that I run in borderless windowed or windowed mode, I get this stupid "Game Bar" garbage.

I did a little research, and it seems you can stop it from auto-opening in windowed games by opening the Xbox "app" and disabling it from there. However, whenever I open the Xbox "app", I'm asked to log in with a Microsoft Account. I do not want to do this because I don't have a MS Account, nor do I want one. And it seems that even if you log in with a Microsoft Account, you're forced to create an Xbox Gamertag before you can access the settings.

How do I stop this garbage "Game Bar" without a Xbox/Microsoft Account?

Apps :: Does Not Recognize Administrator Account

Jan 29, 2016

I am logged in to Windows 10 Pro as an Administrator. The operating system refuses to allow me to unzip an executable file to a folder on my C Drive failing because an Administrator account is required. It does not give me the option to provide my password to authorize the process. This problem surfaced when I did the free upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 late last year. I found search results info suggesting that an embedded manifest embedded in the file may be involved. I can't find a folder where I am allowed to unzip the file.

Apps :: Store - Start Menu - Taskbar - And Apps Like Calc Not Working

Feb 23, 2016

I originally wanted to completely disable the UAC as the admin permission messages that popped for almost any/everything i wanted to do were very annoying. I dont remember exactly what i did, but it was something in gpedit or something similar to it. After i did that my windows store app stopped working, and appeared as a blank space in my task bar as it was still pinned there. As the store wasnt working, apps related to it like the calculator disappeared from my pc. They dont appear when i search for them, and links to DL ones from the store dont work either.

I tried the guide here Apps - Reinstall and Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums and did step 2, but that managed to break powershell and make it disappear as well as disabling my task bar and start menu. I cant right click anything in my task bar, and can only use the start menu's right click menu.

Is there a way to use Cortana normally, but while keeping the local account?

On Windows 8, I used to be able to sign in individually for each app, can I do the same thing for Cortana?

Apps :: Reinstall Calendar Without Microsoft Account

Jan 31, 2016

My new ASUS laptop came with Windows 10, so this is not an upgrade install, but an OEM purchase, and therefore not a pre-release build. My problem is this: I accidentally uninstalled the Mail/Calendar app that comes with Win10, thinking that they were two separate apps. In uninstalling Mail (which I have no use for), the uninstall also took away Calendar (done through a Powershell command).

I understand I can get these back through the App Store, but only if I have a Microsoft Account. I do not want, and do not have, a Microsoft Account. Is there ANY way I can get the Calendar app back on my machine? I do not want to convert my local account to a Microsoft Account.

Apps :: Cortana - Unable To Sign Into MS Account

Aug 31, 2015

I've upgraded to Windows 10. I'm trying to set up Cortana (in UK) and I'm stuck with a sign in problem with MS account.

I know my MS account password but the next window asks for my previous password, which I don't remember. In fact, I didn't have to log in to my local account. I've tried several different passwords and I've tried it 'blank' but to no avail.

So, I'm stuck! I can still use my machine ok but I can't finish setting up Cortana.

Is there anyway that i can give him access to all of his games etc when logged in as himself.

Apps :: How To Unlink Outlook Account In People App

Aug 10, 2015

I upgraded my wife's Surface 3 to W10 on Friday and the good thing is that now I can add her iCloud account to the People App.

I logged into her account on the web and deleted all of her contacts to avoid duplicates, but all contacts in the W10 People App still show as having a "linked" Outlook entry.

Although I can manually go into each one and unlink the accounts, then delete the entry, how can get it to do a re-scan so it knows they have been deleted?

I can't remove the Outlook account from the People App as that's the one she signs in with and there is now option to delete it anyway.

Apps :: After Creating New Account Store Disappeared

Oct 25, 2015

I was having issues in my original Windows Account where I was unable to use the search bar, windows button, or store, so I got to create a new account on my computer. I did, and the search bar and windows button now work. I copied my files from my old account to my new one, but I do not have the Windows 10 Store. When I try to download something, it says I need a new app: ms_windows_store.

Under This PC > OS (C:) > Users, I was able to see that under my new account, there are 6,000 less files even though I copied and pasted them all.

So my question is twofold, how do I get Windows 10 Store back, and when can I delete the files from my old account (I just doubled everything).

Apps :: Metro Apps And Store Not Working And Grayed Out - Advanced

Sep 14, 2015

A bit of background info: I have installed Windows 10 about 5 times.

The first 4 it would only work until the first reboot because during the setup phase it would automatically install a faulty driver and on the first available restart my Windows would break and I would have to reinstall to get the laptop working again. However all metro apps worked fine before the first reboot.

The 5th time I switched my internet off and window 10 setup finished without internet. That means the faulty driver didn't automatically get installed so I had a chance to switch off the automatic driver installation. However it also meant Windows 10 didn't get activated during the setup phase. I switched internet on, activated Windows 10. Now my computer works fine but all Metro apps are greyed out and not working. For some of them the application crashes and others give me the error "This app can't open". I tried all obvious solutions

sfc /scannow and the DISM commandReinstalling them using: Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml"}Reinstalling them using PowershellStarting the Application Identity and App Readiness Services and a couple of other random suggestions I saw online. For me nothing has worked. I tried digging deeper and looking at the event logs the error message when trying to open the store is:

Activation of application Microsoft.Getstarted_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App failed with error:

The application cannot be started. Try reinstalling the application to fix the problem. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information.

Looking at the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log:

Activation of the app Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App for the Windows.Launch contract was blocked with error 0x80073CFC because its package is in state: 66.
