Written by : Afnan Talib (for Windroidica)
Some of those who have upgraded to Windows 10 are facing a plethora of problems and issues. They could range from Wi-Fi not working, Search or Cortana not working, Settings not opening, Start Menu or Taskbar not working, Windows Store not working, some Windows Store app not opening and so on.
For most of these problems, there are some basic things you need to do. Follow these 3 suggestions and chances are very high that most of your problems will be resolved. While these 3 will fix most of your Windows problems and issues.



Windows 10 problems and issues
Before you commence, make sure that your Windows 10 is updated with the latest updates. Having done that, create a system restore point and move on.
1] Repair corrupted Windows 10 system files
Some of your files could have got corrupted as a result of which Window 10 is not working the way it should.
From the WinX Menu, open a run Command Prompt (Admin), type the following and hit Enter to run the System File Checker.
sfc /scannow
This will scan your PC and replace your corrupted system files with good one’s. Restart after the scan is over.
2] Repair corrupted Windows system image
Run the DISM tool to repair a possibly corrupted system image. To repair Windows Image, open an elevated command prompt, type the following and hit Enter.
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Restart after the scan is over and see if it helped.
3] Re-register the Windows Store and apps 
Search for ‘PowerShell’ in taskbar search, select Windows PowerShell from the results, right click on it and choose Run as administrator. This will run PowerShell as administrator. Now type the following and hit Enter.
Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}
This will re-register Windows Store Apps.
I hope these 3 steps will solve most of the problem you are facing while using windows 10.
