Hello @snakehunter1765,


Try re-registering Your Phone app. Perform these steps: 


1. Search for Windows PowerShell using Cortana or Windows Search. 


2. From results, right click on Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator. 


3. Then type following command and press Enter key: 


Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers -Name Microsoft.YourPhone | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml” -Verbose}

 Let the command complete. 


4. Close Windows PowerShell and see if the issue is resolved now. 


If issue still persists, you can report it via Feedback hub app.


Hope this helps!

@Kapil Arya i followed your instructions powershell gives me Add-AppxPackage : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument '\AppXManifest.xml'. not good error to me

@snakehunter1765, I've updated my reply with code block. Can you retry the command. Copy and paste it directly to Windows PowerShell and it should work.



The code block still contains the "beautified" quotes ;). How I hate that specific automatic beautification in every place.

@Kapil Arya tried and still errors wont proccess sorry

try repairing the app from Windows settings => apps => search for Your phone

also report the crashes about Your Phone app in feedback hub

@HotCakeX i reported that to feedback hub

Thank you!
