    Everyone on WP10TP Here is a tip:

    Don't UNINSTALL the MS Built IN apps (Like Outlook, ect) because to get back you will have to do a reinstall of W10!

    Maybe it seems like common sense, but in the past OS/Built in apps could not be uninstalled so no worries. But W10 app can be. made the mistake of deleting Outlook as it wasnt connecting to Action Center properly. In the past we always unistalled/reinstalled misbehaving apps. But when I went back into the MS Store to get it , It wasnt there. Soft Reset..Nothing.

    So I went to the WP Insider Community site to look for answers - The answer was - You have to reInstall WP10.

    Dumb huh?

    ​anyway..be careful

    Well its obviously not dumb. You shouldn't really delete system apps in the first place. Even of its just notification related.

    Hi,
    i have deleted skype and facebook. The tiles are now greyed out and marked with "error".
    Also installing any app to SD card and deleting them is a bad idea. The apps do not start any more but the cant be removed or reinstalled. Did 3 hard resets yesterday to figure this out.

    This can be solved with a SOFT reset of the phone.

    Press and hold POWER and VOL DOWN until the phone vibrates (appox 15 sec).

    Go back to your app list and it should be ok to open

    You don't need to hold down any of the volume buttons when rebooting your phone. You only need to hold down the power button until you feel the phone vibrate. When you feel the phone vibrate, release the power button and your phone will reboot(Soft Reset).
