Default Microsoft Store Apps Fail

I have a few Microsoft Store apps tiles my start gizmo. Several days ago some them went dim, and refused to launch. No big deal, I never used them anyway. I was keeping them there just-in-case. But, I decided to fix this and updated drivers for the connectivity ability of Windows. One stopped being dim, and I figured I'd try more later.

Next, they just simply disappeared. I tried to launch calculator with a shortcut I have and it was dead. So I went searching on the Internet and saw the usual trouble-shooting steps, which I don't feel like doing.

And here's the thing: why would I want to software that depend on connectivity to Microsoft. Other than Windows, which I'm sort of stuck with.
