This is the story of new software: you may face bugs until it becomes more stable in further releases or fixes. On day 1, you may face two major bugs:

Bug 1: Windows 10 apps are not working

Suddenly, most of live tiles on the start menu may become gray (dimmed) and you cannot open most of the Windows 10 apps (such as Store, Mail, Calendar, Photos, OneNote, Xbox, Music, “Movies and TV” and Microsoft Solitaire Collection). Once you try to open the Store app (for example), it flashes on the screen without opening.

The following is the solution:

  1. Restart Windows: To ensure no app is loaded in the memory.
  2. Open Windows PowerShell: Using an admin-privileged account.
  3. Copy and paste the following command then hit “Enter”:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

Repeat the above steps if you still have any non-working Windows 10 app without changing anything in the mentioned code.

Bug 2: Office Activation

Even if you chose to upgrade to Windows 10 keeping all files, programs and settings, You may need to re-activate your Office.
