    Today one of the apps my brother uses for art stopped working. It would crash upon attempting to open at least 90% of the time. When it would finally open, it was unusable as nothing could be selected.

    So the options we had were to reinstall it which would have consumed a lot of data or reset it which took a few seconds. After the reset, what do you know, the app opened perfectly and it's useable. The only downside is that his paintings were lost (probably I'm getting a bashing over this)

    So if any of your apps stop working and you don't feel like going through the process of uninstalling and reinstalling, try the reset

    Go to settings > system > apps > select the app > advanced options > reset

    Try it out for a quicker way of getting apps working

    This is great! Never noticed this. Is this new in the anniversary update?

    I took a look - I only have the option of move and uninstall. No "advanced" button. Am I missing it? I'm on a PC right now.


    Or perhaps, it's because I'm on production?

    it's because you're on production build. This is on anniversary update (OS 14393.5 or higher)

    Ah, mine says 14393.10, so it should be the anniversary build, albeit the production build.


    Edit: Sheesh, this update causes me all sorts of confusion.

    that's weird that you don't have the advanced options. Can you check a random selection of apps? to see if any has it?

    I'm back. I found the "advanced options" on some of the apps. I am almost sure I am the ***** who missed it before. I somehow thought it was a box like the "move" and "uninstall" boxes. Not all have the "advanced options", but now that I know where to look, most do. Sorry about that. It was likely me who was blind enough to miss it.

    it's okay, nothing to beat yourself over. The apps that don't have reset - maybe the developer has to include it or something?

    Yeah, I think so. It's the Beoplay Software updater among a few others.

    that doesn't sound like an app, more like a program.

    You might be right. It's not from the store.

    Only store apps have the 'Advanced' options.. I don't think developer has to include anything to enable it, because I did nothing like that yet I have the advanced options for my apps.

    That confirms one thing at least

    You're right and the info above is the proof

    Yeah, eagerly waiting to try out Anniversary. My display broken LUMIA 730 has been repaired. I thought by the time I get my phone, Anniversary update would be live but it ain't!
