    APPS suddenly not on pc or in Windows Store?


    I had Amazon and a couple of other app Tiles that have disappeared . Amazon I use a lot and now all I find is the Kindle app. Whats happened?

    You could try fixing system files with "sfc /scannow", if that doesn't help try System restore.

    The one thing REFRESH does is Apps from the Windows Store will be kept. If it keeps my current apps I would assume it's not going to refresh them. Do you see the Amazon App in your Store?

    No, I don't have Amazon App, my search returned no results.

    EDIT: Something else causes the disappearance of your Apps, refreshing system may rectify it, hopefully.
