This tutorial explains how to reinstall built-in apps uninstalled accidentally in Windows 10.

We get a lot of built-in useful apps with Windows 10 installation. Whether I talk about Calendar, Calculator, Money, News, OneNote, etc., there are many important built-in apps. In case you uninstalled any of these apps, it is very simple to reinstall those.

You can reinstall all the built-in apps together by just using a command. The screenshot below shows some built-in apps that were uninstalled by me and then installed easily using the command.

Although, you can also install the built-in apps from Store, but you have to install the apps one by one. Using the PowerShell, all the apps are installed in a single go.

Now let’s find out how you can get back the built-in Windows 10 apps that are uninstalled by you.

Reinstall the Windows 10 Built-In Apps:

Following are the steps:

Step 1: Open Windows PowerShell as administrator.

Step 2: After opening the PowerShell window, enter this command and execute it:

After this, open Start Menu and access All Apps section to check if apps are installed or not. It really works and your Windows 10 built-in apps will be installed successfully.
