    I had some issues on my laptop so I did a restore to a restore point that I created earlier and everything went back to normal but a new problem developed. Now, when I try to open any modern app, it tells me "This app can't open" even store is not opening.

    I have done some search online and this code below seems to fix it
    Code:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    
    
    But when I run the command in PowerShell as instructed, I get this error
    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073D02, The package could not be installed because resources itmodifies are currently in use.
    error 0x80004004: Unable to install because the following apps need to be closed
    Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy!CortanaUI.
    NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId] 734127fe-0ba0-0001-79a9-4173a00bd101 in the Event Log or use
    the command line Get-AppxLog -ActivityID 734127fe-0ba0-0001-79a9-4173a00bd101
    At line:1 char:38

        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : DeploymentError,Microsoft.Windows.Appx.PackageManager.Commands.AddAppxPackageCommand
    Does anyone know what's wrong? or any other way to get the modern apps working again.
