  • Thank you David for your prompt reply. On thinking back on it I am reasonably sure that this may be because I unwittingly uninstalled it. I simply have neither time nor use for the majority of these apps and got rid of most of them after installing the OS. Including Insider Hub, not realising what it was. Any suggestions as to how I can bring this app back to life, short of rebuilding my PC would be appreciated.

    Try going to the Store app, click on Account > My Apps and see if its listed there as uninstalled. If it is, click on the app and then install.

  • Heh, people cried for the Start menu back, and some still don't use it...

    I pressed the Start button, typed insid and just hit Enter...  Voila...

  • System Restore is still around...  What I don't know is whether App deletions would be recovered by that.

    A Refresh operation might be needed, to restore the system to the full might and majesty :) delivered by Microsoft.  Not sure you want to go that far but I've seen one other person have to do that to get back the Feedback App that they had deleted...

    Good luck.

  • Looks like I am going to have to stick a DVD in the drive and rebuild my PC to get this app back.....sigh. Never mind, it is easy enough to do. Just tedious and time consuming.

    To everybody who replied, thank you for your input and suggestions. It is much appreciated.

  • Hi Jerry. Thank you for your reply. It is just a pity it didn't come sooner as I have just finished rebuilding my PC from scratch. Still, from your reply I learned something in the process as I found all the apps I have uninstalled so I now know how to resurrect if and when needed. Thank you again.

  • Thank you everybody but I am very confident of having found the answer to my question. After having completely rebuilt my PC following some earlier suggestions I received a post from jwitalka (see above) which, had a I received it sooner, would have spared me the tedium of rebuilding my workstation.

    As I am not a person who spends a lot of time in forums and blogs I am still learning a few things about what to do in forums. One of those being how to close this conversation.

    After marking a reply as being 'Proposed as an answer' I received an automatically generated email which said: If it answers your question, mark it as the answer!

    OK. But where do I do so? I have looked and looked but I cannot see where to click on something that says 'Mark as an answer' or something to that effect. I am beginning to question my eye sight and my sanity.

     Off topic comment :

    I have seen a few OPs marking own replies as Answers.

    So, someone posted an original "question", came back and posted own solution to his/her own question, AND proceeded to mark the reply as Answer.

    Now this example came from a member of over 10,000 points, not from a new novice member.

    I made a" report " but no action taken.

    Personal opinion only...... I don't think OPs can be allowed to mark own replies as Answers.

    Thank you.

    You don't get it, don't you. Let me "spit it out ".......

    I want to improve my standing by accumulating points faster.

    So, I posted a question which I already knew the answer.

    I waited a bit, came back and posted the answer.

    I marked it as Answer.

    I get points.

    Perhaps, "they understand how things work" and use it to their advantage ?

    Perhaps, I think "they're doing something wrong" because this trickery has been known and exposed ?

    Perhaps, you never thought of it ?

    By and large, those people get caught, and besides which, who really cares?
    The points really don't do anything other than ego stroking. Frankly, I
    couldn't care less about points and the only reason I'd suggest that
    someone mark my post as an "answer" would be to help someone who comes
    along later with the same problem. Even with that, I don't bother asking
    people to mark my posts as answers.

    Did you now?  Last I looked - and I don't mark my own posts as the answer much if at all - I thought you couldn't actually indirectly award yourself points that way.  I know you can't vote your own posts up. 

    Edit:  And Paul makes a good point - I'll bet most who have done this a while don't care much about the points.  There are deeper reasons for enjoying helping folks and communicating on a forum.

  • I don't even "propose" my replies as answers, let alone marking my own as answer.

    I leave that to the OPs and Mods to decide.

    I posted this off topic remark because some do look at points as important, maybe even the reason why they post replies. That is why this "under-handed" practice invented.

    I have seen people complained to the mods ( in another forums ) because someone with the similar reply got marked and his did not.

    This off topic discussion had gone long enough. Totally irrelevant to the OP's question.

    I shall stop now.
