Windows Central Question

I've got my lumia 1520 past few years.
past 1 year++ ago I installed developers trial of W10.
Then I tried to hard reset it then I've found it totally lost everything... I mean the SETTING app, PHONE app, App Store..... except few thing like HEREmaps and skype.

So how on earth can I reinstall all those again.....the only thing I can do is just connect to the WiFi. thats all.

Please Help ME. TQ

Did you restore from a backup? How old was the backup?

Try giving some time for the Store to update and then the App/Settings to update... Staying on a fast WiFi connection helps minimize the waiting pain.

Only then look at WDRT if it seems nothing is coming back after a few hours. It might even take a day or two for everything to catch up.
