Powershell commands to fix Windows Metro Applications

After trying several methods, one of the Windows 8.1 user affected by a similar problem had discovered a powershell command that fixes broken Metro Applications (Control Panel, Camera, FileManager, Windows Store).

You need to launch a command prompt window by right-clicking the Start button and enter the following command:


powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\ImmersiveControlPanel\AppxManifest.xml

powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\camera\AppxManifest.xml

powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\FileManager\AppxManifest.xml

powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml

No reboot is required and the Metro Applications should be working without any other issue.
