My Windows 10 live tiles are all grayed out. If I click on any of them it says to wait a few minutes and try again as they're being updated. They've been like this for a couple weeks now. I've run the Windows App Store repair tool and it found/fixed a corrupt cache, but the problem remains. What else should I investigate?

You can utilize PowerShell to reinstall all of the built-in Windows apps for all accounts. Under similar circumstances, that has consistently worked for me in the past. Use the following procedures:

  1. Press WinKey+S
  2. Type PowerShell within the search field
  3. Right-click the result titled Windows PowerShell and choose Run as Administrator
  4. Acknowledge the subsequent UAC prompt, as necessary
  5. Copy-and-paste the following command into the PowerShell window and press Enter:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    
  6. Watch the reinstall processes scroll by and wait for them to finish:

    PowerShell

  7. Reboot and verify the functionality of the built-in Windows apps
