Thank you Kiran.

I know about Scientific calculator and I am using it, but the standard order of operations is the standard regardless of a calculator type. I think this is a bug and it should be fixed.

I strongly agree. The standard order of operations makes much more sense, and it is next to impossible to add fractions with this embarrassment of a design. This was a major oversight in an otherwise useful app.

Here is a question that is not totally applied to your issue but I thought I would give it a try.  I had Windows 7 and did the Windows 10 upgrade.  All was going fine.  Then about 8 days into using 10 I went to use the Calculator was GONE.  That that was the box that said calculator and then when I clicked on it I was told to go to the "Store".  Did that and still can not find how to get the APP to my Laptop.  So does anyone have any ideas of help.  I also wonder why I can get the blue area that states "App Download".  I click there and nothing appens.  Also that could be why I can not get the calculator so any ideas"  Thanks for letting me in with this question.

Hi,

Thank you for keeping us updated on the issue and apologies for late response.

You may want to create a new user account to test if the same happens as this could be due to current user profile corruption as well.

Press Windows key + R to open RUN box

Type control userpasswords2 and press OK

Under User Account window and under Users tab, click Add tab

Under How will this person sign-in windows, click the option at the bottom Sign in without a Microsoft account (not recommended)

On the next window click Local Account at the bottom

Choose a user name (use password if you want to or you can leave the password section blank as it is just to test)

Click Next and then click Finish

As you click Finish, the previous User Accounts window remains on the screen

Select newly created user and click Properties

Click Group Membership tab

Click to select Administrator and click Other and select Administrator from drop-down menu

Click Apply and then click OK

Hope this helps.

I know this post was from a while ago, but are there any plans to fix the calculator? 

Telling people to switch to the scientific mode if they want a calculator that can do math correctly is a ridiculous response.

Then, Why this mode which doesn't follow standard is called STANDARD mode??

It should be renamed to Simple mode or something. Unless, It is a bug.
