There is a 3rd important folder location that we need to know. This is a common Folder, where both Windows Apps and System Apps reside. It is good practice to create a system restore point before starting any troubleshooting. Once a System Restore Point is created: Identify the Windows Apps that are not working, how did it happen, was it after running the generic Power Shell cmdlet? Ironically, we have to run the same Generic Power Shell cmdlet to fix issues with the Packages. Running the cmdlet will reinstall the Apps in the Packages Folder.
The Apps Run from this Common location when we launch them.(‘Your User Name’ is the name of your user account)Now let us see what can be done to fix issues with Windows 10 Apps not working. If none of your Apps are working, the easiest fix is to try a system restore to revert to an earlier time when the system last worked fine. It will help to get back to where you started, just in case you mess up. Or, Right-click the start menu to access the panel, Then select Control Panel = Configure System Restore. Run the below Generic command only if you have issues with multiple Windows Apps. However, around 15 Apps won’t launch when clicked, since it also deletes some folders that is required for those programs to run.
