Re: Laptop apps are gone what does that mean

Hello aresrules123 –


If this was just a one-time thing there is probably nothing really wrong with your laptop, and this could be chalked up to a system glitch. I have seen similar things before happen when a computer has not been updated or restarted for a long time, and doing so usually fixes the glitch. If this is something that you’re experiencing regularly I recommend taking it to your local store for Geek Squad to take a look at.

Re: Laptop apps are gone what does that mean

Kind of a late responder but as I didn't hear about any updates I figured I'd throw in my own insights. I know for a fact there was a Windows 8/ Update that affected apps and they had to do a hot patch on that a day or so later. Make sure your computer is fully up to date with Windows Updates.

What operating system are you running? I know there have been a few instances when I upgraded systems from Windows 8 to 10 as well the apps disappeared.

I would also suggest checking your system files. Follow these simple steps.

a. Press Windows + X key and click Command Prompt
b. Type the command: sfc /scannow and press Enter.
c. Restart the computer and check.
