Apps :: Features / Apps Missing After Upgrade

Aug 19, 2015

I first upgraded my laptop, in order to test Windows 10 before installing on my desktop. The laptop worked fine, my apps and peripherals still worked, so I went ahead and upgraded my desktop too. Realized that my user profile was corrupted, which resulted in me not being able to access settings, search, start menu, etc.

I've managed to mostly rebuild my original profile, the start button is working and I can search, but none of the "modern" apps show up anywhere - including the Store. On my laptop all this showed up automatically, and seems to be working fine. Search, Task View and Edge are present, but my start menu is a little, er, naked compared to what I'm seeing on my laptop. Do I need to manually download and install Store and get the other apps from there?

Apps :: Under Settings And Features What Does Unavailable App Mean

Aug 20, 2015

I see a long list of my windows 7 apps. Some have a size and date and other have the date and the words "unavailable".

What does this mean and if it means I can't run the app, what can I do about it? Do I have to find a Win 10 compatible version?

Why Is Settings App Freezing On System Apps And Features

Nov 9, 2015

My settings app keeps freezing, but only when I select System > Apps & features and System > Storage, at least as far as I am aware of.

I am running build 10586, but already had this problem in build 10571, the first one I had as an Insider for PC.

Desktop / Win32 Apps Missing From Start Menu (All Apps) And Search

Jul 23, 2015

Some desktop apps are missing from the "All apps" section of the Start menu. Most programs are there, but I'd say 10-15% are missing. Apps that are missing also do not show up when searching the Start menu, and they cannot be pinned to the Start screen as tiles from File Explorer. (The option to "Pin to Start" is there, but selecting it doesn't do anything.)

I have a screenshot here of Outlook 2013 missing from the Start menu even though it is present in the "Start Menu" programs shortcut folder. This is one of many examples.

I've tried resetting the Windows Search index a few times and that hasn't done any good.

Additionally, I've tried adding my own shortcuts and folders to the "Start Menu" programs folder and the changes do not reflect on the Start menu "All apps" section. It's as if it has cached the structure somewhere and it is not updating for changes (or it is ignoring some changes). I tried to figure out some way to kick it into resetting but I have not been successful.

Apps :: Windows Store And Apps Broken / Missing

Mar 5, 2016

So, a few weeks ago, I started playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on Steam and every time I would exit the game my volume icon and my start button became unclickable. I searched the web for a solution and found a PowerShell solution. It worked, but it only fixed the problem until I decided to play again.

A few days ago, I went to open up my camera app and a screen would open up for 1 second and close. It also happened when I tried to open up the Windows Store.


I've tried everything except system restores. I never set up restore points and that's my fault. I really don't want to spend hours downloading all my games and programs again. I also don't want to spend money on a external hard drive to make backups of everything. If I have to, I will. Hopefully there is a quicker and easier fix. I don't understand why there just isn't a uninstall and reinstall option for the Windows Store.

Well, here is a screen shot I made of my issue. I've read through a few other posts about Store errors, I think mine is different than most of the other ones on here.

Mail App Missing Features?

Jul 30, 2015

I have been using Outlook for IOS for a few months now. It is by far the best Mobile/Desktop Email Client I have ever used. The Mail app in Windows 10 look very similar but is really lacking the features. Do they intend to bring the apps closer together in functionality? It would be a productivity powerhouse with the addition of the mobile features.

Apps :: Missing Window Controls In Apps

Aug 6, 2015

For some reason, some of my apps' window controls are missing their buttons (e.g. close, minimize, settings, etc.).There was once a similar incident on the SevenForums where someone had problems with their window controls not showing up, but this affects the Store apps and the built-in Windows apps as well. Of course I can interact with the window normally, but it's gotten annoying already.

Already ran the sfc /scannow tool and it didn't find any problems...

Already did register the Store and apps. That didn't work. For some reason, it only affects just apps, and not windows for Explorer, Task Manager, MMC, etc.

Screen Color Features Missing

Oct 11, 2015

I upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 10 on my Toshiba Laptop (Satellite C55t Series - Touchscreen) and had to revert to former as I did not like the windows screen. The Title Bar, Toolbar and others did not have the usual color features.In other words, From Title Bar to Taskbar were all white/gray (or whatever it is). Having been so used to the features of Window 98 to Windows 8, I found it uncomfortable to use it.

App Store Missing And Other Apps Not Working

Oct 27, 2015

After downloading Windows 10, thing worked well for a few weeks. After trying to download "Windows Essentials", my  entire system has been in disarray. I went back to a previous version of Windows 10 before the corruption, but now NONE of my native Windows10 apps will open. I receive the following error: "There's a problem with (whichever app). Contact your system administrator about repairing or reinstalling it."The PC App Store icon is gone completely (as is the Microsoft Edge app and icon), and when trying to open it through "Search", I receive the following error: "Problem With Shortcut: The drive or network connection that the shortcut 'PC App Store.lnk' refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again."I've tried the wsreset fix, but receive the following error: "MS-Windows-store.PurgeCaches. The application cannot be started.

Apps Missing From Lock Screen Notifications

Jul 30, 2015

Got mine installed today and went rather smooth. No major problems but one tiny annoying issue. We did the upgrade on 4 machines and 3 don't have this problem. I want to add mail and cal to my lock screen and it is not a option on my machine. (PRO others are home) After a couple reboots I got mail to show in the System->Notifications&Actions section but it wasn't for a while and CAL still is not.Did some searching but everything returns "missing my get windows 10 icon"

Apps Missing In Lock Screen Notification

Aug 2, 2015

I'm using Windows 10 Pro. I installed the OS from the ISO file. There is one little bug though.

In the lock screen settings, in "choose an app to show detailed status", the place where I can add the apps for which I want detailed status to be shown like email, calendar, it is not showing. Instead, its showing "none". It means I cannot add an app for whose notifications I want to see in the lock screen.

Also, in "choose apps to show quick status", the only app that is shown is 'People'. No other app is shown.

Apps :: Missing Tiles In The Start Menu?

Feb 10, 2016

I remember that after I had upgraded to Windows 10, my local account wasn't available and the system logged me in with a temporary profile. Then when I logged in with my account, some of the tiles from the start menu had disappeared. I've tried opening powershell and executing the "GetAppx" command line, but that didn't work. I don't even know what the cause of it is.

What I did was simply refresh my PC, preserving my personal files and documents, although I'll have to re-install a few of my apps. But the start menu appears to be back to it's usual state. Still not sure who is at fault though, me or Microsoft...? :/

Maybe it's just me, but it is my opinion that the OS build is buggy (I have 10586.0).

Apps :: Windows Feedback App Went Missing After TH2 Update

Dec 1, 2015

Few weeks ago I have upgraded to Windows 10 TH2. After some time I have noticed that Windows Feedback app went missing, and I can't find a way to install it back. I tried searching for it at the store, it's not there.

I have tried Powershell command where it re-installs all other Windows 10 apps, however that only makes things worse - it deletes some other apps like Windows Store, and won't install them back anymore, giving me bunch of red error lines. I had to run a restore backup once, just to restore most of the apps. I did it successfully but Windows Feedback App is still missing.

Is it supposed to be like that or what? Because on my main home PC, I did the upgrade too, and and the app is there, all fine, but not on the laptop. Is there a manual way to install this one app somehow?
