I found a way to fix that. If you try to restart the phone (or remove batter) u will notice that this message "Saving..." will continue to be issue. But if you make a soft reset/restart (will NOT delete data on your phone), for example for my Lumia 930 is press & hold Power + Volume down buttons - wait 10 seconds - and the phone will restart, this ...

Microsoft Edge is set to open PDF files by default. You cannot change that Windows 10 Mobile. If you want to use your dedicated PDF viewer app then you must open PDF file through that app.

You are still running 1511 version it seems. A lot of bugs has been fixed on Anniversary update i.e)version 1607. Do the following: Update Windows 10 Mobile to version 1607. Install any pending updates for Office on Store. If things didn't work after that, try uninstalling and re-installing the office apps. If nothing works out perform a hard reset. Note :...

As far as I know, this is not Lumia-exclusive, but is simply designed to contain any manufacturer-specific settings that aren't covered by the built-in categories. For instance, on my Lumia 950 the Extras category contains things like colour profile and Glance screen. I'm guessing Alcatel phones don't contain any such settings and therefore the Extras ...

You don't need to remove old update. It gets removed by itself during the process. Transfer apps to SD card or uninstall some.

It is not possible to replace the default video player in IE or other system apps - neither by the user nor the developer. You can launch a specific video app from your own app as a dev, but that's all for now. You can always post suggestions to http://windowsphone.uservoice.com

Use Files app from Microsoft available in AppStore, which allows to browse your phone and SdCard memory where you can delete Whatsapp backups which is stored either in your Phone or SD Card as your suggested to keep backups while installing apps in a folder named by the apps (e.g. : Whatsapp backups will avaiable under Whatsapp folder, so on)

I noticed the same thing, but you actually can just install it from the store. Just open this link in your phones browser: ms-windows-store:pdp?pfn=Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe

Go to Settings -> Extras -> Screen, then you can select color or brightness profiles.

For me this usually happens for internal / Microsoft apps - no worries.

Has anyone of you encountered a similar issue like this? Yes, I have encountered a similar issuea on my Windows 10 mobile multipe times. It happens sometimes. I suspect it is a malicious app It's just a normal app updating. It is the store which has failed to load details. Solution To solve this you need to restart the store and recheck for updates.

Unfortunately Weather and Groove are OS apps and cannot be removed. Have you tried a soft-reset to fix the problem? (Hold Power + VolumeDown.)

After searching and reading a few posts about this particular setting, I can say that this feature is not a Nokia/Lumia exclusive. 'Extras' contains all the settings/options that are not yet included in the new categorized settings of Windows 10 and as mentioned by @Indrek, also that are specific OEM customization features. That's why it is not available ...

Windows 10 Mobile has a nifty functionality that allows you to reset an app if it misbehaves. However, it is not available for most system apps, including Photos. Try doing a soft reset. It usually resolves most app crash issues. Whilst your phone is on: Press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time until you feel a vibration (...

My problem has been solved without any intervention from me either with a soft reset or a hard reset. I think Microsoft silently updated their apps. Now Microsoft Weather and Groove tile icons appear correctly in all apps list.

I have fixed this problem removing the sd card safely from the phone. Opening the sd in a computer, and performing the simple win32 command chkdsk /F of the drive letter where the sd is being used in the computer. It seems the sd flag of integrity is very fragile in Windows 10 mobile, and the only way I can really "fix it" is the real chkdsk from the old MS-...

This is a known issue. Microsoft have acknowledged it and provided a service-side fix. You'll have to hard reset your phone again to get the app back. Source: WinBeta

There is no known way to uninstall the Podcasts app. If I remember correctly, Transfer My Data is not an OS app; you install it from the Store, so there is a difference there.

The 3GB (approx.) of usage on all Windows Phones is actually the operating system, and therefore cannot be removed. OS update do require additional free space, but once the update process is complete, those temporary files are removed. Depending on what Windows Phone you have, you can add an SD card for additional space. Space on the SD card can also be ...

Application crashes automatically send telemetry back to Microsoft that developers can log in to their developer portal, and get hold of the stack trace that failed. Microsoft has said in the past that they concentrate on the most common failure points first, when talking about Windows 7 it was said: The telemetry really helps us focus on the benefit of ...
