3. How to repair apps in Windows 10 using DISM

 DISM / Online / Cleanup-Image / CheckHealth

Step 3

Now we do the general scan of the Windows 10 image:
 DISM / Online / Cleanup-Image / ScanHealth

4. How to delete Windows 10 temporary files


The applications that are used little by little leave temporary files lodged in the system that finally become garbage or can affect the behavior of this application, so it is ideal to delete them to verify if this corrects the problem of the application.

 

Step 1

In this case we open Run using any of the following options:
  • Using Windows + R keys
  • From the Home search or from Cortana
  • Right-clicking on the Start menu or using the Windows + X keys and there select it

 

In Run we enter:

 % temp%

5. Run a SFC scan Windows 10


SFC (System File Checker) is a Windows 10 NTFS file system scanner which can affect the execution and behavior of applications.

 

To use this method, we access the command prompt as administrators and execute:

 sfc / scannow 
image

 

As we can see, if there are damaged files, SFC takes care of repairing them in real time.

 


6. How to clear the Windows Store cache


Because many applications are downloaded from the Windows Store, they host cache as we have seen before, so it is ideal to clear this cache to see if this corrects the bugs.

 

To delete this task, in the command prompt console as administrator we will execute the following:

 WSReset.exe 
image

 


7. Run the Windows troubleshooter


Windows 10 integrates in your system a function to run a comprehensive analysis of errors and correct them if possible. This is the troubleshooter and as such integrates an option to fix the problems of the Windows Store applications.

 

Step 1

To access this tool we go to the following route:
  • Start
  • Setting
  • Update and security
  • Solve problems

Step 2

There we click on the line "Additional troubleshooter" and in the next window we select "Windows Store Applications":

8. Reinstall the Windows 10 application with error


Through PowerShell we have the opportunity to reinstall the application that has errors in Windows 10 and with it restore all its parameters.

 

Step 1

If you decide to take this method, open PowerShell as administrator and there run the following syntax:
 get-appxpackage * application * | remove-appxpackage 
image

 

Step 2

Once this is done, we restart the system and install it again from the Windows Store.

9. Create a new Windows 10 user


Some of the problems of the applications are linked to errors in the user profiles, we know that a user profile controls the applications that are installed in its environment so if the profile has errors the applications too.

 

Step 1

In this case getFastAnswer advises you to create a new user, for this we are going to
  • Start
  • Setting
  • Accounts
  • Family and other users "

Step 2

We click on "Add another person to this team" and we can add a user either locally or online with Microsoft:

Step 3

After this we grant administrator permissions to this user:

Finally we log in with this user and install the application with failures or if the application has been installed for all users of the system we can access it..

 


10. Set the time zone Windows 10


Although it may not seem like it, if the system time is not synchronized as it is, some applications will simply not open as they can use services based on network or computer time

 

Step 1

Therefore it is key to validate this, in
  • Start
  • Setting
  • Time and language

 

We see this:

 

image

 

Step 2

When accessing there we will go to "Date and time" where we can see if the configuration is correct:

If not, we can deactivate the switch for automatic configuration and manually set the zone, then click on "Synchronize now" to complete this process.

 

Some of the options that getFastAnswer has given you are ideal for applications to open and run as they should in Windows 10.
