I have a Toshiba laptop. Whenever I try to open one of the microsoft apps that came with the computer (with Windows 10?) I get a pop up box with the following message:

 

(Name of App) can't be opened by the built in administrator account. Sign in using another account and try again. (screenshot attached)

 

Any advice appreciated.

Hi catholatho :)

This is a known issue under Windows 10 if the UAC is disabled. You need to set it at least at the minimum level, and not completely disable it, otherwise you won't be able to open Windows Apps (like Edge, Calc, etc).
