Turbocharge your Python development with the latest release of PyScripter!


Reinstalling Windows Apps

This post is not related to PyScripter.  However some of you may find it useful.

It has happened to me before, but more recently when I installed the latest Windows 10 update many apps including Microsoft Store failed to start.  Also my Logitech keyboard started misbehaving (for instance pressing the left arrow produced the letter a).  After searching for a solution for a while I came across the following Powershell command which resolved all problems:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}

You need to run it as administrator.  It solved all my problems. Pure magic!
