After updating to build 10041, it broke my xbox music, video and also the Netflix app. I was able to uninstall and reinstall the Netflix app which made it work again, however since xbox apps are part of the core, I can't just uninstall. Any way to delete them?
I was able to get into the windows app folder in the program files directory but still couldn't edit my permissions to allow me to delete it.
I've tried everything at this point that I can think of but I can't seem to get these two apps to work anymore. I can use the preview apps no problem.
I've tried using the Powershell command to basically refresh the apps installed on the machine and it fixed my Mail/Calendar apps that were also having this issue but no luck on my Media apps.
I've tried manually uninstalling them and redownloading them from the store with no luck either. I'm not sure what has happened and would like to know if at all possible, how I may be able to get these working again.
With Windows 8, I had a bunch of different apps for videos (movies, tv, etc). I would start a video, swipe from the right, select 'device', select my Xbox One, and it would stream to the Xbox. Now I am not seeing any way to do this.
Is there any way to Uninstall Xbox app & Live Gaming from Win10? When I try to install/run game 'Halo2' on Win10 its refuses saying there is already a Live Gaming account running (Halo2 uses Live Gaming itself). I suspect the Xbox app (which also uses Live Gaming) is to blame for this. As I don't use or need the Xbox app can it be removed?
I upgraded my Lenovo U310 laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 a week ago. Everything seems to have upgraded successfully. The only problem that I can find is that none of the video streaming from Windows 10 apps can be played. I get an error 'Unsupported video type or invalid file path' when I click on a video article in USA Today or when I try to stream video from any other apps, NBC News, MSN Money, etc... from Windows 10 store.
I have no issue streaming videos from any of the browser though. What could be missing that could cause video streaming to fail?
I have 2 accounts on my machine. On my primary account, the Xbox app would not launch - no error given, just click and nothing happens. So I logged into Windows with my second account and the Xbox app launches with no problem. However, the Groove app won't launch under the second account, whereas it will under my primary account. I have tried the Powershell command to remove and reinstall the app and that has been 100% unsuccessful.
It appears to do nothing more than remove it from the start menu as it still says "installed" if I search for it in the Store. If I reboot, then the Store will allow me to reinstall. The same issue persists in not launching and providing no errors.
I am completely baffled as to why some apps work under one account and not the other - both accounts are admins. Is there something else I can do? I had originally upgraded from Windows 7, but after getting all kinds of BSOD errors, I did a complete wipe and fresh install. I've had these default app not launching errors - or lack of errors as none are shown - since then.
I have seen lots of people saying their Store won't launch or the Start menu doesn't work, but I have had no issues with that...
Since upgrading to Windows 10 I have lost something I used frequently, the ability to stream movies & pictures to my Xbox 360. Apparently Windows Media Center isn't supported on Win10. Looking for 3rd party apps. I downloaded and installed Plex on PC and Xbox but apparently their is a charge to stream from my pc using Plex.
I enjoy talking to friends through Xbox Live, but I recently sold my Xbox One for financial reasons. I have been using the Xbox App to communicate with them using Party Chat. It's fun to sometimes play soft music through the microphone just to have in the background that's routed through my computer, but there are a few issues with doing so.
Since there are no audio settings built into the Xbox App, I've had to MacGyver a solution in a way. There is an application called Voicemeeter Banana that allows you to route certain device audio into other devices, and is compatible with their VB Audio Cables, the freeware alternative to VAC. Through this I have my headphones set as my Default Communication Device and my primary cable as my Default Device. One of my two secondary cables are set as the Default and Default Communications Device for recording. In Voicemeeter I have my microphone routed to the secondary cable's input. My primary cable's output is routed to my headphones and my secondary cable's input as well.
Here's some screenshots of the setup for better clarity:
The problem here doesn't lie in Voicemeter, though. It lies in the Xbox App, as these settings work fine with Skype or just browsing and listening to videos/music. For some reason, ever since the newest update for Windows 10, when I use these audio settings the Xbox App party system does not detect any audio coming from my recording device or any of my friends' microphones. I believe it might have something to do with Exclusive Mode settings, but nothing I've tried so far has worked. So far, I've reinstalled the drivers on at least 7 different occasions, I've messed with the Audio Formats extensively, I've tried switching up the cables testing for bad drivers, and I've reinstalled the OS from scratch countless times (to 8.1 then upgrading, not straight to Windows 10).
Is there any way I can get this set up to work, or am I just asking for more than is currently possible?
I'm having a problem with windows 10, it keeps resetting my default apps for watching videos and listening to music.
I want Windows Media PLayer to be my default app for all of these multimedia files but at least once a day a pop up informs me that there was a problem with one of my default apps and that it has been reset to default.
Is there anyway to disable Windows from taking this action?
I have all my media, music and movies sitting on a ReadyNAS 516 and have the shares mapped to Win 10 just fine. I can access all my media from the OS and other applications just fine. The issue is when I add "where to look" from both Groove Music and Movies and TV app, they never pick up my media and add to the available media for playback.
On my desktop, when I run a music app in Windows 10, say Plug radio or Tunein, it stops playing music after a second or two of being minimized. If I maximize, it starts playing again. If I change the volume with the keyboard, and the little pop up window with volume, artist, song info, etc. pops up, it starts playing again, but as soon as it fades away, it stops again.
I checked under Task Manager, and the .exe file for the app suspends when you minimize it, and starts running again when you maximize it.
I have a laptop that I also upgraded to Windows 10 from 8.1, and it doesn't do this. I can minimize the same apps and they continue to play. When the desktop was Windows 8.1, I didn't have this problem.
ok, got a buddy in the uk who upgraded to 10, now he wants to remove microsoft office 03 as its barely compatible with 10 and he wants to grab a more recent version of office. small problem. he cant figure out how to uninstall it. the usual suspects for enabling an uninstall dont appear to show the program. I've directed him to tutorial Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums and suggested option 4. he's currently told me both hdd's and the ssd all have a folder called microsoft office. he's unsure whats what.
edit: for clarification, the SSD is the drive that has the operating system installed to it. one hdd holds installed games, the other gets everything else.
I installed a software two days ago. Now I wish to uninstall it completely and want my PC to be in the state as it was before installing it. A simple uninstall may leave some of the backdoor components installed by this software. Unfortunately, Windows 10 has System Restore off by default which I forgot, so can't use the System Restore.
