Microsoft has issued a workaround for the latest Windows 10 update that apparently causes some apps to disappear.

Last week, the company released the latest Windows 10 Creators Update, which includes new security features and support for new augmented reality perks that will work with “mixed reality” headsets and other hardware gear from Dell, HP hpq , and other hardware partners.

The software update was announced October 17, the same day the company previewed its new Surface Book 2 laptop/tablet combo platter. Soon after that, users who had upgraded their operating system on their own machines started posting about missing apps on the Microsoft support page.
