  1. My PC has two users. While on user is able to use the mail app in windows 10 the other user is unable to use the app. It would simply not work. Can some one help me with it.

  2. I was just thinking on the same thing. Now that I have a more experienced adviser mentioning the same. I guess that should be right. Thanks a ton

  3. Whenever I create a family members account (standard account), and logout to use it, a circle keeps on spinning saying please wait. This carries on for idk how much time. Please help!

  4. That works to get access to the Start Menu, Notifications, Edge and Cortana. Neither that nor any of the above suggestions have been able to make Windows Store apps (or the Windows Store itself) load.

  5. I did upgrade to windows 10 and since then I can not use my laptop any more the screen keep jumping and no option is for me to change anything restart it few time keep doing the same need Help Please

  6. Installed win10 on my laptop without any problems, and works nicely. Then installed win10 on my dell 2020 desktop, worked well to the point of signing in, then the screen keeps jumping around on the desktop screen, and cannot do anything, tried restarting. shutting down, and cannot do anything, what do I do now? Can anyone help? Thank You, Claude

  7. I found that the Start menu and taskbar would work with some users and not others on the same PC. Deleting users (keeping files) and recreating them and restoring files worked. But copy back contents of default folders not the folders themselves.

  8. Hi, when I try the third part of the above solution (Re-register the Windows Store and apps), most of the steps will result in the type of error below. FYI, the first two steps (repair system files and image) ran smoothly but didnt resolve my taskbar problems including problems with start button, search button, wifi, speakers, notification and time.

    Please help. At wits end.

  9. Windows 10 has rendered my laptop unusable. When I log in the screen contiuosly blinks and I can’t use it at all

  10. After installing Windows 10 on my Samsung laptop, receiving mail is very slow and can take half an hour + to register incoming mail. PLUS, attachments of spreadsheets or Adobe documents contain Zero Bytes and therefore, cannot be opened. What can II do?

  11. Word, Excel files do not get printed through NITRO or PDF Writer already installed before switch over to Win10.

  12. I have non of the above problems but keep getting messages about running programs in compatability mode. I do not have any issues of any sort, all applications and programs are running just fine so wonder why I keep getting these messages. Can you help please

  13. should I touch the pc keyboard faceplate with my wrist or palm while typing a document, different things happen that I DO NOT want to happen. 1) it reduces the size of the font to the point I can’t read it. I want to shut off the keyboard touch portion of the faceplate. 2) same problem, different results. While typing a document, should my wrist or palm touch somewhere (I don’t know exactly where) it sometimes totally erases what I typed and nothing I know to do restores my writing. I WANT TO FIX THIS, ASAP!!
    Just now, while writing this note, my screen size just enlarged without my selecting it.

  14. mail is not syncing, even calander too 🙁 all other apps are working fine
    there is no problem with sync settings

  15. This powershell action is not working. I get this error:

  16. Your suggestions resolved a serious slow (2+ hour) boot problem apparently associated with Credential Manager. I was fighting with this for a month before I found this page. I ran your commands and it’s fixed! Thanks!

  17. ever since i upgraded to windows 10 the store hasnt opened. neither has any other app including photos and iheartradio for example im trying to get this fixed but nothing works

  18. I have a new machine, purchased with Windows 10. It has been presenting the same issue, my other machine gets locked up randomly but the solution proposed here (Re-register the Windows Store and apps) did work after many trials. Thanks Anand.

  19. for step 3 you say it will not work if updated after november….. in that case whats the solution if updated… my start menu and store icons dont work.

  20. after i used the repair image command the start menu and the file explorer works great, and after a few days its the same again, it buggs n freeze up and stops working.

  21. On occassion we do something to cause the desktop to suddenly magnify like going from 100% to say 125%. We are in our late 60’s now and are not experts but also not novices either. To correct we do a shutdown and restart and all is fine again. This works but it would be better if we knew how to fix this without shutting down. Any ideas?
