Here is how to fix Mail, Calendar, and People apps on Windows 10 Build 10041


Microsoft released a Windows 10 Build 10041 earlier this evening. The new build brings transparency to the start menu and introduces some new UI changes as well. However, as you may have already noticed, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps on this build is broken. Fortunately though, Microsoft is aware of this issue and has offered a workaround. To fix this issue, just follow these steps:

  • 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)
