Windows 10
Hey!
im going to try to explain how i have ended up here right now.
Recently I decided to add a SSD to my 7yrs old laptop, and install a fresh windows 10 on it, and i did.
I had already prepared a bootable usb of windows 10, and because i didnt have any space left neither in my 1t drive nor in my external hard drive, i had to first install windows on the new ssd in order to gain space for moving files around.
Its almost a week now that I'm busy with this issue and i have had hard times :))
At this moment, after dozen windows installation and a lot of file transfer.. i have finally an acceptable windows 10 running on the ssd, and formatted my old drive completely.
but at the begining i had a windows 10 installed on each drive and both were using the same username and email synced ..so lots of bugs happend..
anyways, With the help of the internet and specially your help, i managed to correct my username via these links:

But the problem im facing right now is that some windows apps get closed immediately after opening, not all just some.
I have went through these links all from start to end many times;


but the problem still exists.
windows store app and many more windows apps are just working fine,
List of windows apps that get closed immediately after opening:
Snip & Sketch
Photos
Groove Music
Calculator
Alarms & Clock
Video Editor

repairing, resetting, uninstalling the app and reinstalling again from store, doesn't fix the problem...
re-registering via command prompt and PowerShell, don't fix the issue...

dunno why but i think this issue is somehow related to the symbolic link i made at the start changing usernames :/

help..

Sorry, here's the repair install tutorial below for Windows 10. It's basically an in-place upgrade to the same version and build currently installed without losing anything. It'll repair the OS and all system files/apps.

There's no guarantee, but it often fixes things without having to clean install instead.
