  • Hi,

    Hi,

    Also try following methods as mentioned by other community members.

    “Following procedures can be used to fix issues with these win 10 apps.  Mail, Calendar, Cortana, Start menu, and Settings.  It probably will work for others but I have only tested it with these.  You need to run this for each app that is not working

    method 1:

    Open Windows PowerShell.

     Copy and paste the command below in PowerShell, and press Enter.

    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    method 2: Reinstall the App from Windows Store “

    Regards,

    D. Wu
