Preferred Solution: Store software - Edge extension/s greyed out

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys, I've a problem and need some help .

I was using store and updating both Store and Share.it apps,
the update seems to be stuck for some time it was taking long time than usual.

Then suddenly store app was closed and don't open any more !!

(in the same time used a tool (Win 10 Toggle Tweaker) to uninstall some apps:
Get Office, Skype Preview, Money, News and Office Sway.)
I checked and both of them were greyed.

If I try to open Share.it, I got this error,

Store doesn't open or give any errors, I tried "wsreset.exe"
and it ended with an error,

I tried to remove store then reinstall but nothing fixed, using codes:

Code:
PowerShell Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore_11606.1001.39.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command "& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}"

Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_11606.1001.39.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode


Also, I tried these codes as well but nothing changed,

Dear Microsoft, 
We want to utilize Microsoft Edge across our company. However we have a password tool to help us remember our passwords. 
The company behind the password tool already created a working Edge extension.
They also tried to contact Microsoft but Microsoft mentiones that for now, only the 18 most used extensions are available.
Why can't they submit their extension into your store? 

I and our company need it! this function works flawless on other browsers. (Also IE but we don't want to use IE anymore) 
We use PasswordState from clickstudios
Is there someone that knows more?

Now that Edge has extensions, I wanted to give it a new try. I sync my bookmarks with Xmarks (between IE and chrome so far).

I installed the xmark Extension, but it looks like it is not an extension to Edge, but a win app (I can see my bookmarks in that app, but not in Edge). In the Extensions (in Edge settings) xmark doesn't up as an extension. Other extensions I installed (i.e. Adblock) show up in the list.

when installing it also didn't ask me if i wanted to use it in Edge (Like Adblock did).

Am I doing it wrong, or is the Xmark app not a real Edge extension yet?

I need to sync my bookmarks between home and work and at work i only have Xmark (W7 IE11), so if Xmark doesn't work in Edge, it is of no use to me.

I've just tried adding 'Bing Translate' which is an App from the store. The App was located and installed via the new extensions tab under 'settings in Edge.

Question... I was expecting the App to show in the browser and to be useable from the browser. I imagined I would be able to swipe text on a page, right click and select 'Translate'. Am I wrong in that assumption ?

The App has installed and is usable (and its really good) via the normal Windows search box but it seems totally disconnected from Edge. I really thought I could just use it from Edge as and when needed. As it is, I have to copy the text, open the app and then paste the text in.

A:Edge and adding an extension. Is this correct ?

Microsoft Translate. This useful extension will translate foreign language pages for over 50 languages. When you encounter a page in a different language, the Microsoft Translator icon will appear in the address bar; just click it to instantly translate the page to your currently configured language.

- might be nearer what you want. But page translation... it works.

( = Search Store for Edge, look for Translator for MS Edge)

(Or use e.g. Firefox + add-ons to translate specifically selected text !!!)

I found clicking 'Get extensions' opened Store basically blank- I'd hoped for a list of available extensions; this means knowing which extensions are available, then searching. Hmm.

Hello, I have recently just upgraded to Windows 10 from a Windows 8.1 build (and did not do a clean install) and I have recently been experiencing some bugs.

Firstly, I am unable to download any apps from the Windows App Store. I have tried many different apps but I always get error 0x80070002. This only seems to occur when I use my Microsoft Account and link it to my PC. When I tried downloading apps using my Microsoft account for the store but a local account for the PC, they installed perfectly fine. I am using a third-party firewall, McAfee Security Center which I have disabled temporarily but the issue still occurs. I have tried several solutions on the Internet such as using WSReset.exe, deleting Download and DataStore in SoftwareDistribution in the Windows folder, using Windows FixIt (which detected a service registration error and claimed to have fixed it, although whenever I run it again this same error pops up with it saying it fixed it again.) and even reregistering the program (which didn't work either).

The other issue I am having is that when I was using sfc.exe /scannow in the Adminstrator Command Prompt to check for problems, it detected a problem of some sort of image in Microsoft Edge. I have used this command before on my previous operating system and it didn't detect anything. It also said that it failed to repair it and I have the log which is attached.

Hello,
For a long time my computer was running very slowly but did not have time to do anything about until lately I have been receving a lot of junk emails and started feeling suspicious and searched the web.

Yesterday night I have downloaded Malwarebytes and after scanning, it detected 14 issues which have been quarantine. Today when I started the computer the Edge and Store icon were gone from the task bar and all Apps downloaded from the Store and already installed by Windows like Calendar etc. have gone too, not even in the list of the Apps. The whole configuration of Start has changed and all the apps present are defined new, and on recent used, there are apps I have never downloaded and never used. Those apps that were in the Start Menu on the right have completely gone.

Edge works because when I try to open a file from Windows Mail, as Edge is default browser, it opens but when i narrow it, it just disappears and cannot find it anywhere.

When I opened Windows Mail there was a bill from my telephone company and just after some minutes another arrived which looked just the same but when I opened it ,it had an attachment rar file and it was obvious it was not from the company, (they never send me the bill I have to log into their website to download it) so discard it as junk.

Hey guys, first post on the forums.

I recently moved into an old house, and found some stuff in the storage room.

a huge looking computer that is a netfinity 7000

and a sun systems a1000 store edge.

i have no idea what the netfinity is, but when i opened the store edge it had a dozen or so hard drives in it.

i was wondering if there is a way to hook the store edge up to my desktop computer.

i do in home music production and would love the extra HD space.

i notices it had two power supplies on it so i didnt wanna just go plugging stuff in.

any help would be appreciated.

lol, what is this stuff?

thanks guys

running windows vista 32 bit
gateway gt 5656
all stock exept xfx geforce gt 240 video card and a 500w power supply.
 

A:Sun Systems A1000 Store Edge?

Welcome to TSG!!

The Netfinity is an old IBM server. The A1000 is probably so old that it's got fairly small drives in it. By the time you figured out how to interface to it, you could easily install a 1, 1.5 or 2 TB drive, and end up with a LOT more storage space than you'd get with this!

The two power supplies are for redundancy. If one goes out, or if the power from one is lost, the other picks up. In practice, they are connected to independent power sources.

That stuff was probably left behind because it was more trouble to move than it was worth!

Go to a .jpg picture and 'Right' click it. *Don't open it, JUST right click the unopened file*

From the menu choose 'Properties'.

Near the top is an option saying 'Opens With'.

Select that, then look through the list of programs it brings up.

From there you can bring up the default opening program of your choice - Internet

Explorer is in the list as is 'Windows Picture and Fax viewer' [which you might want to try out if you haven 't already].

The important part of this procedure is directly below the list of programs in the dialogue window itself-you'll see a line saying;
'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'
**** Tick the checkbox you see there to make it your default opener for all your .jpg pictures.

Hello,

Have a quite old program that ran on previous PC which used XP.
Would like to get it going again, if possible

Tried all the compatibility screens and wizaards, and it seems like one problem "might" be that W7 can't handle one of the program file xtensions called: .INS

I did a Google, but all that seems to come up are a multitude of sites that want to sell Registry scans, etc.

Is there a place anyone can recommend where I can obtain the extension inexpensively or free, to install ?

And, if i can get it, what do i do with it ?
Where do i place it, etc. ?

Much thanks as always,
Bob

A:Obtaining Software Of A File Extension ?

Hello Bob,

The file extension in itself should not cause a program to not run on win7.

I can find 12 references to programs that have used the .INS filetype

Alphabetic File Extension List

what is the actual program you are trying to install - if it was designed for XP then unless the program deals with system level access or is specifically written to only work on XP one of the compatibility modes should work.

another option if you have Professional or Ultimate Win7 is XPmode

One other option is to convert your existing files into a newer format and/or find a program that is win7 ready that can read the files or file conversions

I'm not sure wich adblocker currently i should use?
I have a lifetime license for Adguard but i┤m not sure if I should use this or should remain with the browser plugins?
 

A:Adblocker software or Browser Extension

I use the Adguard extension for more than 3 years now and I'm very happy with it. It is light and blocks everything it needs to block. It also has some protection against bad/malicious websites. I use the extension, since I don't need the desktop version. I used Adblock plus in the past, but I liked Adguard much more. Áblock is also a good alternative, but after trying much adblocking extensions. I always return back to Adguard.

It's just a small problem. I have my windows Media Player. How can I store my all music that I downloaded from MP3 website free download? Or is there any software I can download free and stored my music MP3 there coz I don'feel comfortable with windows Media Player? Thanks guyzz.... I'm just newbie in computer.

A:Software To Store Music

Windows Media Player is just a tool to view all of your stored music, and if you choose to let it do so, it will organize your library as well. All the MP3 files are still just on your hard disk, wherever you saved them to.

Some other programs to view, edit, and play your music are available:

iTunes
WinAmp
RealPlayer

Hi,

I'm looking for a program where I can store my address book on and at the same time it should give me the option to simply export the data so it could be used on other address book programs.

This is just to be sure, that if I don't like the program (in the future) I can simply switch to another without having to re-enter all the data.
 

A:Software to store my address book?

I believe as long as the program uses the iCalendar standard you should be able to import and export into any application that uses that standard. I just keep all my stuff online with Google and Yahoo so I can't really recommend any native application that runs on the PC.

I am having problems with re-installing software for my printer. I am running Windows 8.1 from a SSD. To save space I installed HP's all-in-one software on my D: drive. My D:drive died. I could recover no data so I simply replaced it and started rebuilding. When attempting to re-install the HP software I get the message that the software is already installed on my D:/Program Files (x86) and will up update it with a newer version if necessary. The install program gives me no way to redirect the install. If I continue it appears to install the printer and everything but will not complete. It spins in an endless loop. I have to either reboot or use task manager to exit. The resulting install (non-install) shows nothing in D: and some HP files in C:. To try to fix I have removed all evidence of HP files in C: and all I can find in the registry. Nothing works. There is obviously some history stored somewhere of the original instillation. Where is that history stored and can it be deleted or redirected?
thanks for any suggestions.

A:Where does Windows 8.1 Store Software Installation History

Go to HP Drivers and Downloads for Printers, Scanners and More | HP ? Support to download the drivers for your HP printer. The only thing that is stored, is downloaded updates from Microsoft/Windows update. With that, the OS uses a Registry entry to point to the location. The WinSxS is all Windows updates and downloads from Microsoft/Windows updates.

I'm still relatively new to Win10, having done a clean install on my laptop that had been running Win7 for a few years.

I'm trying to understand if there's any advantage/disadvantage to installing apps from the Windows Store versus installing the regular versions of the same software. For example, I'm a long-time user of portable apps and for years have used the portable version of VLC. However, I saw that there's a VLC app available from the Store. So I installed both versions (i.e. the portable version and the Store app version) and the portable version is clearly more robust and has more features than the app. Such being the case, why would anyone want the Store app version versus the regular or portable version? Is there some advantage to installing the Store apps instead of the regular or portable versions of software? Do the apps install and uninstall at lot cleaner than their non-app counterparts?

I've been toying with the Idea of using a spare Hard drive I have to save all my Programs and Software files, rather than keep getting the CD to reload or update when asked etc. At present I store most of them on my present Hard drive and I also zip the files and save them on a DVD now and again also as a backup.

My present listing is of some 4G. If I did do this and as at present I'm running XP in ntfs format, but at some stage may return to Win2K in the same format.

Would I still be able to access the files under a different OS on this spare Hard drive or move it from PC to PC. ????

thanks

The software application that I download has already signed with certicate used in SHA1 algorithm?however the IE give the SmartScreen's prompt ,said that the
softwares' signature is broken or invalid.



I have looked through serval article about the SmartScreen,the websites as follow:

and than I known that,

(1) Signature verification will fail in IE and Edge download checks and SmartScreen?s prompt After 1/1/2016 signed with SHA1 algorithom.

(2)The Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates can immediately establish reputation with SmartScreen reputation services even if no prior reputation exists for thatfile or publisher.

(3)Application reputation is evaluated by antivirus results, download traffic, download history,and URL reputation.



Some one said that if I use algorithom such as SHA1 , SHA2 or SHA1 ,SHA256 dual-sign,it can avoid the SmartScreen's prompt. but some other said that you should use EV Code Signing Certificates
to avoid the prompt.
