Windows 10 comes with a number of universal apps built in, such as the Start menu, Cortana, Microsoft Edge browser, Xbox, Microsoft store, photos, 3D painting, a note, skype, etc. These are default built-in apps that come pre-installed while installing the Windows 10 update. Sometimes after the recent Windows 10 update, you may notice certain apps are missing. Or after installing the latest updates, the apps don’t work properly, hang, or don’t respond.
