Windows apps not working after installing coreldraw 13 : Solved

Hello Guys, I was facing a dramatic issue of Windows 10 apps which are closing immediately after opening. I also noticed that Windows 10 start menu is not working when I try to click on it.

Issue: I faced the issue on installing Corel Draw x3 and after that none of the windows 10 apps like Microsoft edge explorer or other windows apps opening or working.

I tried to uninstall corel application but nothing happened, thank god I had created the restore point. I tried to restore back on that point in time and everything is ready to work fine.

I thought the problem went away and I again try to install Coreldraw 13 and find that Coral  is changing some permission is registry that’s why I am unable to click on start menu and all Windows store apps stopped working.

It was the case I found causing issue but in your case it may be any other application which also can change or corrupt the Windows 10 registry permissions.


Fix: Microsoft Edge not working in Windows 10 after installing CorelDraw 13

I solved the windows 10 apps issue by following below given steps by making change in registry permission.

As you will not be able to click on start menu or search the Registry Editor to open, you can type Windows + R key to open Run and then type regedit

Note: You should have opened this with administrator rights

Registry open

Right click on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.

Change Registry Permission

Click on Permissions and in new dialog box click on Add

now click on Advanced 

In 3rd dialog box click on Find Now

From search result click on All Application Packages and then click Ok.

All applications package

Now select the permissions under as Read and click ok.

Now close registry editor and everything that is currently opened.

You can notice now that every windows apps ready to work, you have fixed the Microsoft edge app won’t opening issue and start menu has started working as earlier.
