1. Press Windows Key + R on your keyboard.


2. Key in PowerShell and hit Enter.
3. Right click on the PowerShell icon on the taskbar and select Run as Administrator.
4. Now paste the following command in the Administrator: Windows PowerShell window and press Enter key:
GetAppXPackage AllUsers | Foreach {AddAppxPackage DisableDevelopmentMode Register "$$_.InstallLocation\AppXManifest.xm
l"}
5. NOW for the important part ! Locate to : C:/Users/name/AppData/Local/ and delete the TileDataLayer folder. Should fix everything imm
ediately, no reboot necessary. Let me know how it works for you, it did for me! And remember to clean the recycle bin after you deleted
the folder and give it 1min then everything is back to normal !

Same here. I also tried to delete the folder from an Administrator CMD, but two files weren't deleted, and the
problem is still there.

UPDATE: It still not helped, even my tiles are disapperared. The PowerShell script has shown a lot of red errors.

Download Unlocker.exe, try to delete the folder with Unlocker, you 'll see "no success" again, but the taskbar must
be working now.

hmmm... I tried all of the above without the unlocker.exe

Not only do I receive an error at the end of running the powershell, but I also cannot locate anything called
