Apps not opening or stuck on Splash Screen - Windows 10

Occasionally some Windows Updates can cause the programs to freeze upon opening. As you can see in the picture below, they can crash on the splash screen. Sometimes closing them and opening them again is a good workaround, but a more permanent solution to prevent this problem from happening again, is to run a PowerShell command to re-register your apps.
  1. On the Search box on your Taskbar, type PowerShell and right-click the Windows PowerShell application. Click on the Run as Administrator option.
  2. Type or copy-paste the following command: Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
 This might take a few moments. After it's done, restart your computer.
