    Hi,

    Like many other people I have had a number of issues with the gadget app in Windows Phone 10.
    These range from the app not being able to detect any new hardware to not allowing deletion of existing hardware through crashing continuously my start menu.

    I would like to know if there is a way to clear the cache of this application or at least reinstalling it without having to perform a full device reset the phone.

    Have you ever found out how to do that?

    PS: the storage app doesn't enable a deletion of this app.

    Thanks,
    Florian

    Does anyone have the link to the app in the store? I would love to try it on my BLU WIN HD LTE, because when I link one of my Bluetooth devices it doesn't always register properly to start Groove Music.

    It's one of those hidden/system apps that don't show up with a general search.

    Thanks for your replies! Unfortunately I am not able to uninstall or move the app using the OS functions.
    I didn't really find the gadgets app in the store either, maybe I missed it but regardless, if I cant uninstall it, it will be hard to reinstall it!

    I will give a go at sysapp pushed but I am not sure if you can uninstall packages from there.

    I finally found a way to uninstall system apps from the phone. You have to turn on developer mode, turn on Device discovery and Device Portal. After that, the phone will show you it's IP address, which you can hit with a web browser via WiFi.

    Via the browser, you can view all the apps installed on your phone, install and remove apps, stop/start apps, etc.

    The problem, for me, is that I can't always find the apps in the store to reinstall them. Again the "Gadgets" app will not show in the store, no matter what spelling I use. I believe it's because I don't have Microsoft/Lumia phone, and the store tends to filter out apps that are not compatible or not for specific phones.

    The "Sysapp Pusher" doesn't show the "Gadgets" app in any of it's lists.

    The other thing with turning on developer mode on the phone and reinstalling apps, is that it would be nice to be able to download the apx file somehow to a PC then push install the app to the phone (really nice to reset the "Store app").
