Fixing Windows 10 Broken Apps

email me

If you’re Windows 10 apps aren’t opening, or you’re receiving errors when you click shortcuts on the Start Menu, try this:

Open the Task manager. Click File > Run new task.

In the task dialog box, make sure you check Create this task with administrative privileges.

Type CMD

Type the following 4 commands in the console:

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow


Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like “*SystemApps*”} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}



If you have problems, log in as administrator, not using a Microsoft online account, and try again.


Using a different source WIM

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess


Repair Windows Store

cmd > wsreset.exe

PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command “& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage *WindowsStore*).InstallLocation + ‘\AppxManifest.xml’ ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}”
