Powershell Commands to Reinstall / Re-register Windows8 and Windows10 Packages/Apps

To re-register for all Windows Apps for the current user:

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

To re-register for all Windows Apps for all users:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

This command only works on Windows 10, and I have used it to repair other issues (specifically the Windows Edge Hijack)

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like “*SystemApps*”} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

I really good post on this topic, with other individual App specific commands, is available here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3175-reinstall-re-register-apps-windows-8-10-a.html
