Microsoft Apps not working in Windows 10

Original Title: Microsoft Apps

Hello sir.

I tried this as my Taskbar is not working in my windows 10
  1. Press Windows Key + R on your keyboard.
  2. Key in PowerShell and hit Enter.
  3. Right click on the PowerShell icon on the taskbar and select Run as Administrator.
  4. Now paste the following command in the Administrator: Windows PowerShell window and press Enter key:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\
  5. NOW for the important part ! Locate to :  C:/Users/name/AppData/Local/ and delete the TileDataLayer folder. Should fix everything immediately, no reboot necessary. Let me know how it works for you, it did for me! And remember to clean the recycle bin after you deleted the folder and give it 1min then everything is back to normal

And after that My taskbar is working but all of my microsoft apps like camera,mail, store,groove music and movie etc are not woking, and when I delete TileDataLayer folder,In my windows tab tile bar is not there.

After that i had also created and sign in with a new user account but that was not still working.

what should I do?

please revert me soon

This issue might appear due to some corrupted system files. I suggest you to run SFC scan and check if it helps.

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter.  


Method 3: Windows App Trouble Shooter
