    New problem began showing up around 5/17/16. I can't start the DrawBoard app now. Huge problem because I love it and use it regularly.

    Also, I usually have the calculator on my task bar and those icons have now disappeared. There is a gap for the app and when i press on the gap, the app starts. I only mention because these happened at the same time.

    Go to Settings - Apps & Features
    - Search for Drawboard
    - click on the grey Drawboard box and select "advanced options"
    - Do an "App reset" by clicking the "Reset" button
    Drawboard will loose all settings but should work again. It appears to be a Drawboard bug.

    I did settings - app & features. Found Drawboard but I can't find Advanced Options. Only 2 options move and uninstall. I have the same problem with weather, camera, calculator, alarms & clocks, messaging and many other apps

    Open an elevated powershell prompt and run this.

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