Thanks, that was useful, although it did not address the point I was after. It showed how to reinstall all apps for all users
whereas I'm after a particular app for a single user
I tried to tweak the commands given there to my requirement but failed. In the meantime, after much searching & keep finding exactly the same advice as yours I eventually found [Guide] How to Reinstall All Default Built-in Apps in Windows 10
which exactly fitted my bill.
Under a given user, in an admin powershell
1st issue the command
"Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers | Select Name, PackageFullName
to find all the package names.
Then substitute the specific PackageFullName wanted into the command
"Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\PackageFullName\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
e.g. "Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.Windows.Photos_16.302.8200.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\appxmanifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
Unfortunately, I have one particular user that I'm trying to fix, some of whose apps fail respond in any way and some of whose apps appear in the Classic Shell's App menu, but not in the Windows All Apps, not as their normal name, like "Photos" but as
These 2 sets of apps do not coincide.
Even after reinstalling the Photo app for this user in the above way and w/out any error msgs from powershell
it's still doing this. Any ideas?
