Got some Windows 10 related headaches that you're trying to fix? FixWin for Windows 10 by The Windows Club might be able to help.

FixWin 10 is an update to the popular FixWin application that brings with it a raft of Windows 10 specific repair options to the application. Getting started with FixWin 10 is easy - you just download the file, extract it, and you're ready to go, with no installation required.

Here are the common Windows 10 related issues this application can fix:

  • Having problems downloading Apps from Store. Clear and reset Store cache
  • The Application wasn't installed from Windows Store. Error Code: 0x8024001e
  • Windows Store apps not opening. Re-register all apps
  • Reset Settings app. Settings doesn't launch
  • Disable OneDrive. OneDrive runs in background and syncs huge amount of files.
  • Repair corrupt Windows Component Store
  • Start Menu doesn't work or doesn't open in Windows 10
  • Wi-Fi doesn't work after upgrading to Windows 10
  • Windows Updates stuck downloading updates after upgrading

If you're not happy with the idea of just clicking a button to fix an issue, FixWin 10 can tell you how to fix the issue manually. Just click on the help icon next to the fix and you'll be given instructions on how to carry out the fix manually.

But there's more than just Windows 10-specific fixes. There are also specific tabs detailing fixes for File Explorer, Internet and Connectivity, and System Tools, along a links to specific entries in the built-in Windows troubleshooter for issues such as:

  • Playing Audio
  • Recording Audio
  • Printer
  • Shared Folders
  • Homegroup
  • Hardware and Devices
  • Incoming Connections
  • System Maintenance
  • Network Adapter
  • Windows Update
  • Search & Indexing

While power users probably know all these fixes by heart, FixWin for Windows 10 (there's a separate version for Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7/Windows Vista users) is an ideal tool for those who aren't Windows experts or who don't have the time to trawl the forums for an answer. I've tested the tool on some systems that experienced issues after making the jump to Windows 10 and it worked well, although depending on the problems you are having, your mileage may vary.
