    So you have removed all your apps and for whatever reason you wish to add them back. Here is how...


    1. Open PowerShell, run as Administrator (right click, run as admin)
    2. Type (or paste) this into PowerShell
    3. Code:
      Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    4. Press Enter.

    Wait and watch as all your apps are automatically reinstalled.

    You're welcome :)

    Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CF6, Package could not be registered.
    Merge Failure : error 0x80070003 : Cannot register the Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.13020.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    package because there was a merge failure with the following file: C:\Program
    Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_10.1510.13020.0_neutral_split.language-ru_8wekyb3d8bbwe\resources.pri

    Also the apps that had been working are now renamed with @{BlahBlah...} and no longer function...

    Thank you.

    Just simply use Toggle Tweaker app to remove & reinstall all apps.

    You can try restoring them using Toggle tweaker
    if didn't work try removing them than installing again
    if didn't work also remove them (only current user) and search for them in the store and install them one by one

    Word of advice. Leave your apps alone. If you don't use them just remove them from Start Menu.

    metro app icons cannot be removed from the start menu unless the app is uninstalled. Apparently some people's OCD just cannot handle that.

    Protip: This breaks a lot of stuff in 10586. The command has been removed from Tweaking in version 3.6.5 because its breaking stuff including the Store, so I would really not use this command at all unless you want to do a reset.

    In the Windows 10 last build this command to restore the modern apps are failing. It deletes every app and may damage Cortana. I used this command and even damage the Windows Store. In my case it deletes PERMANENTLY the apps. If i create a new user account, the apps remain broken. I reinstall windows and the same happen.

    All is not gold that glitters. Many people have the habit of a great one to recommend everything, often completely uncontrolled malware.
    The reason is simple - to get a better user titles in forums. Very many texts are simply copied, very often are copied also mistakes, no one don't check nothing.
    It makes me mad, especially when the scripts are copied is made even more mistakes added. Duplicators often do not understand anything, but they are advanced or VIP users in the forums. Gruesome. :worthy:

    I do not follow my threads (dislike too much email) so I was unaware anyone even replied until someone liked or thanked my post. :eek:

    This command worked perfectly and flawlessly in Windows 10 before the November update. ;)

    It was however incompatible with a few of the scripts out there that deleted core windows files (sometime I would advise against using anyway). If you used such a script or crack you're asking for trouble and it was your own fault. :death:

    Finally yes, people have copied this command a few places. They were more than welcome to reshare this. I have no problem with that and see no reason why anyone should. After all it was posted on a public forum. :rolleyes:

    Command works on November update. Tested and passed. :cool:

    If you used a script or program that deleted core windows files (there are a few out there) that is your own problem. :death:

    What command do you use? I used Toggle Tweaker 3.21 in Windows 10 build 11082 x64 running on a virtual machine (VMWARE) and also fails to restore the modern apps. :g:
