    Running windows 10 preview on my 13" asus transformer tablet. After all the updating last night I now have lost the mail app and a few others that I don't use. They say they have errors and to check the store but that does nothing. Thanks in advance for your help,

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    Follow the writing below ==> Answer by Sharief K == > worked for me

    Open Powershell as administrator:
    Right-click the Start button.
    Select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    When the Command Prompt window opens, type powershell and then press Enter.
    The window will stay the same, but the prompt will begin with “PS”.

    2.To remove the non-working Mail, Calendar, and People apps, paste the following command into the Command Prompt and then press Enter: Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    Wait until you receive the response confirming the operation has been completed.

    3.Restart Windows.

    4.When Windows restarts, click the Start Button and look in the All Apps section for the green tile with the title Store, and launch it.
    Do not use the grey tile with the title Store (Beta) for this.

    5.If you do not sign in to Windows with a Microsoft Account, you may need to sign in to the Store with one at this point. If you do not have a Microsoft Account, you will need to create one.

    6.In the Store, search for Mail. You should find a result for Mail, Calendar, and People. Select that search result and install the app. This will take a few minutes – wait for the confirmation message saying the app is installed. You may be prompted to add a payment method. This is not required, and you can dismiss the pop-up prompt if you want.

    7.The Mail, Calendar, and People apps should now be installed and visible in your Start menu with their tiles pinned.

    Note that if you have multiple user accounts on your PC, you may find that the Mail, Calendar, and People apps won’t start when you are logged in with the other accounts. After doing all of these steps with one account, you will need to sign in and do steps 6 through 8 with each account to fix the apps.

    On loading 10041, My HP Envy X2 screen flashes and I can't run any commands to try to update the drivers. Tried safe mode in low-resolution to no avail. Any suggestions?

    Try connecting it to external monitor or TV, then boot into safe mode...

    sounds like you did it in command prompt not powershell. Right click on the task bar select properties then navigation then click replace command prompt with powershell and try it again..
