These days, everybody is on Facebook. Although Facebook is a way to stay in communication with friends and families, most users open Facebook every few minutes just to check status updates from their friends and family, and can’t live without it even for a few hours.
Facebook can also be used to propel knowledge by participating in useful groups, but most users are not doing that.
Coming to the Facebook app for Windows 10, there is an official Facebook app available for Windows 10. Facebook Inc updates the official app on a regular basis to bring new features and improvements.
The Facebook app for Windows 10 is quite stable and works without any issues most of the time. However, at times, the Facebook app might refuse to open or might crash immediately after launching the same.
If you are having issues while opening or using Facebook, you can fix the issue by resetting the app. Although you can reinstall the app, you can try resetting the Facebook app first, and if the issue persists even after resetting the app, you can reinstall the app.
Resetting the Facebook app in Windows 10
Important: Resetting the Facebook app will remove the Facebook app’s data from your Windows 10 PC or device, and you might need to sign in again to the Facebook app after resetting the app.
Here is how to reset the Facebook app on a Windows 10 PC or device.
Step 1: Open the Settings app. Navigate to Apps > Apps & features. If you are on Windows 10 Anniversary (1607) or earlier, navigate to System > Apps & features.
Step 2: Locate the Facebook app entry, and then click on the same to see the Advanced options link. Click the Advanced options link to open the Storage usage and app reset page.
Step 3: Here, to reset the Facebook app, click the Reset button. When you see the confirmation dialog, click the Reset button again to reset the Facebook app.
Launch the Facebook app now. It should open and work without any issues now. If it starts acting again, please uninstall the app and then install a fresh copy from Windows Store.
