    Today I noticed that my Windows Calculator tile on my start screen has gone blank (It was fine yesterday).I checked the 'All Apps ' list where I found it was blank too .I went to storage and saw that it says 'Unavailable'.
    There is no problem with app function as of now.

    Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance .

    Perhaps an update is installing? Or check for updates.

    Are you on an insider build?

    Try resizing the tile. The Outlook mail app tile on my start screen had been blank once, which was fixed after I resized it. Hard reset is an option but is unworthy for an app like Calculator.

    Or wait for an update to the app. That's what you can do as of now. Also, Store doesn't always show updates available. Go to Calculator's store page and wait for it to check if an update is available.

    Yes I agree that hard reset is not worth it for calculator especially since it is working fine.
    I have been to Store and checked on Calculator's store page.Nothing there.

    Resizing tile too did not help - blank tile persists ..
    I will wait for an update to the app ,though I think Calculator hardly gets any updates.

    Storage says that app is ' unavailable ' (Screenshot )

    BTW ,Did your Outlook mail app in storage say 'unavailable ' at that time ?

    I had not checked it at that time. The tile was permanently fixed after a few updates.

    And Calculator does get updates. It gets at least two updates in a month.

    Thanks. The app is working okay at present ,only worry is that in Storage it says 'Unavailable '
    I do have Calculator Toolbox installed since I had it from W8.1 days and it has lots of options .But after W10 upgrade I hardly use it since default calculator app is so much improved.

    One thing I have noticed is that quite often although the insider builds appear fine (or at least reasonably ok) for a while, as time goes on, it does seem to get a bit flaky, as if there's a memory leak or some such which eventually starts causing problems a few weeks down the line.

    I updated to !0586.318 yesterday , hoping that the blank Calculator tile and 'unavailable ' in storage would be rectified.But problem remains .

    Blank calculator tile and 'unavailable' in storage persists even after yesterday's cumulative update (.318)
    BTW ,my calculator app has not got any updates after W10 mobile upgrade on 17th March.

    Did you try sysapp pusher?
    05-11-2016 06:52 AM
  14. Rinsun's Avatar
    Yes I did .Sysapp pusher does not have Calculator .In Windows store it shows Calculator installed ,App is working normally .But tile and app list does not show icon and Storage says 'unavailable'.
