After this major update many apps like calculator, photos, snip & sketch open partially then just go away. I've searched for a solution to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

How was it updated? Through Windows Update? or Some other method?

If you did a Windows update and now your apps are not working it sounds like Windows Update did not complete correctly or it downloaded a corrupted update and executed it. This is extremely unlikely because Windows Update has mechanisms to validate that the update is accurate and its integrity is 100% of what it should be. My guess is that when the update downloaded and then tried to install it didn't execute the update successfully and in its Impartially installed state has left you were you are at.

I would back the update out:

Sadly as the update occurred more than 10 days ago this option is unavailable!

Go here and download the update again:

And then re-install it. If that doesnt work Im thinking you are going to have to re-load the OS. I dont know how you fix an update that partially updated your system that's over 10 days old.

I think you need to reload the box (Assuming you downloaded the update manually and tried to do the install manually and it did not work meaning the box has returned to normal working condition). There's no easy fix here and seeing as how this has been going on for a few days it appears its not all that important. Just do an ovrelay re-install first to see if you can preserve the file system.
