So my mail app was not opening links. So I looked up how to reinstall the mail app. Got to this: http://www.howtogeek.com/224798/how-to-uninstall-window...

I uninstalled the apps, then ran the powershell command: Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} to reinstall the mail app.

A bunch of red errors appeared in the prompt and now my start menu, notifications, onedrive,... won't work.

How do I restore these functions? sfc also does not work in Powershell but does work in CMD. Also, it does nothing.

I am no expert but it looks to me like you have joined a number of us who have found many of our Apps, including the Store itself, trashed --- following the November update. The trigger for this seems to have been using the PowerShell command to re-register apps. The command 'Get-AppxPackage --- etc' is the smoking gun. It has been quoted many times on various forums.

Various fixes have been tried repeatedly without success, so we are waiting for Microsoft to come up with a solution in the hope they have been working on it. However, nothing encouraging has emerged so far.

By coincidence I have just read this in another forum: "Never ever run that powershell command to repair apps. All it does it breaks apps that only a refresh can fix. You have been warned."
