(Windows 8.1) Turn Live Tile On / Off Missing From Photos App

Oct 9, 2013

If I Right Click on the Photos app on the start menu the option "Turn live tile on/off" is missing. I used Windows 8 before upgrading, and I remember it had the option. I wanted to have a small slideshow of my photo gallery on the live tile.

Other apps (such as mail, weather, store etc) are not missing the option and are working fine. I know that the preview version didn't have this problem.

Apps / Software :: Cannot Turn On Live Tile For Weather App

Aug 11, 2013

I can't seem to turn on live tile for my weather app. When I right click on it, there is no option at the bottom of the screen to turn it on.

Compared to the photos app, it is currently running live tile by default, and when I right click on it, I can toggle live tile on and off.

Is there something special I need to do with the weather app to activate live tile?

Browsers/Mail :: Live Tile Not Working After Windows 8.1 Upgrade

Oct 19, 2013

I have upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. After doing so and making sure my accounts are all setup, I have found that I can not get the mail tile to act "live". I have verified it is set to live by right-clicking and seeing that link state "turn live tile off". I tried doing that and then turning it back on. I have tried rebooting. But the tile just isn't live. My other live tiles (news, finance, weather, store, etc) all seem to be live. It is only mail that I am having a problem with.

Photos Appearing In Photo App Live Tiles That Were Deleted

May 16, 2013

The metro photo app (that comes with Windows 8) is showing photos on the live tiles that were deleted over a week ago.

I've turns lives tiles on and off. I've unpinned from the start screen and then re-pinned. I deleted personal info from the tiles from the settings screen. I've verified that the photos are not on my computer (photo app is only showing the computer and skydrive).

My Pictures (live Tile) On Start Menu?

Apr 29, 2013

Ok, maybe I'm missing something but accessing the pictures (live pictures tile) folder from the start menu shows my photo's but not in the order I'd like them to be in. As such, to my horror I've found I can't move them around (re-arrange them).

I can obviously re-arrange them if I access the "My Pictures" folder through explorer, in fact they're actually arranged differently than what is displayed accessing it through the Windows Start Screen.

Anyway is it possible to arrange them there because trying to manually move them around proves fruitless.

Also, how do you take a snip of the stat screen using the snip tool? Win 8 can be annoying at times.

Upgraded To 8.1 - Weather App Does Not Show Live Tile?

Oct 29, 2013

I recently upgraded to 8.1 (actually, made a clean install), and everything seems to be working as designed. Except, on the Start Screen, although all the other apps show live tiles, the Weather app does not, showing only a plain blue background with the word "Weather" on it. The live tile feature is definitely turned on for this app.

Oct 20, 2013

I've noticed that Skydrive live tile does not work after upgrading to 8.1.

So skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

Deleted Desktop Start Folder File - No Live Tile

Feb 9, 2013

A user provided the OP with a Desktop.ink file, and nothing was said about what to do with the file that was provided. I'm having the same problem, where I deleted the file by accident and now there is no live tile for the desktop anywhere on the start screen, not even in the All Apps category. I can't find it in the Windows Store either. What do I do? Here is a screenshot of the folder that I *think* held the original desktop file.

Apr 14, 2014

I installed Office 2013 two weeks ago. The setup automatically pinned Office apps on my start menu. But after couple of days, the icons from some of the office apps automatically got erased from the tiles and now it looks so ugly. I tried re-pinning apps on start menu but it didn't work. I also tried sfc /scannow but it was in vein. How to fix it and get the icons back on the tiles?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Live Tile Apps Not Working?

Feb 25, 2014

I updated windows 8.1 pro with wmc from store.I had NO problems, received no error messages, had no dc's, the power didn't shut off, the download didn't stop .. literally nothing went wrong. After update everything worked fine. All the apps are downloaded and were working fine.

But,After 2/3 months since updated, I suddenly noticed that every live tile / folder / app / game / setting etc. which were working fine, now not working.When I clicked on any tile, nothing happened. It just went to a blank green screen because my background color is green. It appears on the left upper corner as opened but doesn't run. When I click, I am send back to Start Screen or Desktop. Even Store and Windows Setting stopped working. So, naturally i started checking the web for answers, but couldn't find a solution to the exact problem i was having. I saw countless posts of people saying "Just uninstall / re-install the apps" but at first, I couldn't get my App store app to run. Again, it was just blank after several minutes of waiting. I was able to download it after using the search bar menu on the right side of my computer, and was able to start installing some apps.

So i thought that everything was going to be ok, but then I ran into another problem where some of the apps wouldn't install, and I received an error message with the code/number of 0x80070002.

So, at this point, only a few of my apps are working due to the simple fact that I was able to re-install them, but the others I can't re-install because of this error message.

FIRST SOLUTION:I found a thread online that someone had created with a simple fix to about 2-3 errors on the tiles. This is a simple powershell script to re-register some apps so that they can run again. This worked to fix my app store app and setting, but only that apps. The app update is still not working.

I have another windows live ID, and when I log in with that Id, all my apps works normally! I am out of sorts now.

Desktop Tile Missing And Can't Find It In All Apps

Mar 2, 2013

Well, last night, I had noticed that there was no desktop tile and if I typed "desktop" on the start screen there was no app for it Also, "Change PC Settings" wasn't starting. My guess is that it did that because I had a really hard time uninstalling a program so I had to try going by means of registry editing. So I ended up refreshing my computer (from the installation disc since PC settings wasn't working ) Now everything is back to normal. So all I want to know is how I can prevent this from happening again.

Apps / Software :: Win 8 - When Tile Is Touched It Returns To Tile Display In A Second

Nov 6, 2013

I am new to Windows 8, and on the tile display, when I touch a tile, i.e. the weather tile, a black screen appears with Accuweather.com in the middle; this lasts about a second, then the tile window display reappears. I would expect that the Accuweather.com website would appear, but it never does. Other tiles act the same way, but some apps are executed when the tile for them is touched.

Does Windows 8 Include Sample Photos / Videos And Music

May 13, 2013

Prior versions of Windows included sample photos, videos and music files from Microsoft.

I have a new install of Windows 8 Home, 64 Bit OEM version and when I look in My Pictures, My Videos, and My Music these libraries are empty. In the past after installing Windows, I used these files to do a quick check to see that sound card and other parts of the system were working. I went to try that in Windows 8 and no files!

I do not know if they are there but in a new location, or if they are no longer included, or if something went wrong with the install, or something else.

I am also not finding any sample photos when I start up the Photo Tile App.

Jul 23, 2013

This issue it happens for too long I can't open photos of any kind with the windows photo viewer, I don't know how it happened and I don't remember when. When I try to open nothing happens.. its like something happens for a fraction of a second and nothing. I tried almost everything, well, accept for restore but there is no chance I am doing it the cost is too big.

I just noticed that when i try to view a photo file, two processes pop for a fraction of a sec and immediately disappear, one is COM Surrogate and the other Windows Problem Reporting.

Windows 8 Programs Provided Such As Reader Photos Stopped

Apr 27, 2013

All those programs that are present when you first open a Windows 8 desktop like Reader, Photos, etc. You know, the one's you want to replaces real fast with good programs have stopped working. Not that I want to use them or depend on them but it does bug me they all stopped. I don't see a way to uninstall them if they are not going to work. If they have to remain on the pc I would like them to work in any case.

why all these minimum use programs have stopped. And if the fix is drastic of course I wouldn't attempt it.
