Code Samples for Businesses, Schools & Personal Use

The Windows Mail app has always seemed flaky to me but recently I had a new problem with it on a Windows tablet (Win 10 version 1709)

The live tile worked and showed that new mail was being received.

However, opening the app just created a blank blue screen with a blank taskbar icon.

After a few seconds the app then closed by itself.

Rebooting didn't fix the issue which also affected the calendar part of the app.

 

As others may know from experience, core Windows 'modern' apps such as Mail cannot easily be uninstalled & reinstalled or indeed repaired.

So I contacted MS for an online remote support session & now have the Mail app back.

To my amazement, I was first in the queue & it was completely resolved in around 15 minutes!

 

The MS tech provided the instructions for the removal of Windows apps together with reinstall instructions. With his permission. I have attached these here for others to use

 

Why it has to be so difficult is another issue entirely!

 

To remove any of the app(s), open Powershell as an administrator and type the command below for the app(s)

 

To reinstall an app, go to the Windows store ... or use Powershell again

 

Code:

Remove core Windows modern apps using Power Shell
