Apps / Software :: All Tiles Either Crash Or Will Not Open At All

May 15, 2014

A few weeks ago I noticed that none of my tiles showed their little icons, like the gear for the Settings tile, etc. I clicked on the weather tile, and it brought up the screen like it was loading for a split second, but then brought me back to my desktop. Some of the time it doesn't even try to bring up the loading screen, it just immediately returns me to the desktop. Also, I just tried to screen shot the tiles page, but nothing happened. I can't screen shot my desktop either. I don't know if this is possibly related, I have not tried to screen shot anything lately.

Apps / Software :: Mail / Calendar And People Apps Live Tiles Not Updating

Aug 27, 2014

For more than a week now, the above situation have been occurring. I have "scoured" the web and tried a lot of "solutions" and none as at yet have normalized my situation.

I am suspecting that I might need a registry solution, since I cannot refresh my installation- I upgraded to win 8 from win 7 online.

Also, the Skype app crashes almost as soon as it finishes loading and returns to the start menu. But, there is a sign it is still running and whenever you click on it, it trips off again.

I have uninstalled and re-installed several times, ran the apps troubleshooters many times, checked that the time service is running, synchronized this and that, etc to no avail.

My Mail Live tile do not have the option to turn on/off live update but the Calendar and People tiles have it yet none is updating.

Apps / Software :: Metro Apps / Tiles Keep Refreshing To Default Settings?

Jan 8, 2014

Metro Apps/Tiles Keep Refreshing To Default Settings?

I consider myself an advanced user, but I still overlook a lot of things and make mistakes like everyone.

Basically, Windows 8.1's Metro apps and tiles keep refreshing to default settings like it's the first time I've used them or opened them.

When I go to use Skype, it will always ask if it is allowed to use my webcam and microphone. It seems to remember the settings for a while, then forgets them.

I'm assuming this is CCleaner related, but I unchecked all of the settings that correspond to the Metro applications, and this changes nothing.

I'm unsure if I am actually deleting important information Windows needs without knowing. I usually delete logs on top of the usual things to keep my computer clean.

Apps / Software :: Open Apps That Are Active Lose Focus In Seconds?

Oct 21, 2013

In w 8.1 If I open an app within seconds it loses focus. It makes it very difficult to type ie in e mail, the only way to get focus is to left click the mouse within the app and the cursor comes back for a few letters then the cursor disapears again. So any time I make an app active it becomes inactive quickly. To make it active again I have to click on it with my mouse.

Apps / Software :: Right Click Open With Giving Unnecessary Apps

Oct 24, 2013

I have put irfanview as my default image viewers of all types all over the system.

However, when I am using irfanview on a particular image, I want some other app to open the other images that I am trying to open. For that I have installed FastStone Image Viewer, so I want FSView.exe to appear in my RightClick - Open With defaults so that I can select it.

However I try, windows 8 is always showing
Microsoft Office 2010
Windows Photo Viewer
in that open with setting.

I have selected Faststone viewer a dozen time through disk, but it doesn't stick to the right click menu. Those names are always coming.

I don't want even to see 1. Microsoft Office 2010, 2. Photos, 3. Windows Photo Viewer in that list, I just don't want to use these three programs to ever open any of my images.

So I want, 1. irfanview, 2. paint, 3. Faststone viewer to appear in my rightclick openwith list.

How do I do it. I have tried control panel - Default programs. I have downloaded and run Default Programs Editor.exe mentioned elsewhere in this forum, but they don't give any option to "delete" there options of rightclick menu that keep on appearing.

Apps / Software :: Link To Program On External HDD

Nov 24, 2013

I have a recovery partition and use it quite often if I encounter any problems which are very few.

I use CuteFTP to upload to a server but like all the programs, when I do a recovery the software is lost as well and I have to do a reinstall of them including CuteFTP.

There is only a certain amount of times that the program can be activated, (obviously to stop it being installed on multiple pc's), which is where my problems lay.

I want to install the program on a second internal hard drive or on an external hard drive so it doesn't get removed when I do a system recovery. What I don't know is how do I link to CuteFTP after the recovery has completed.

So to sum up, how to link to a program previously installed on other than the C: drive ?

I found that whenever I open an app, such as 'Reader' they remain open even after I switch to something else. I know I could close them by swiping the upper left of the screen and select 'Close'.

Is there a way to have them close altogether when I'm done with them?

Apps / Software :: OneDrive Link In Explorer Favorites Keeps Getting Removed?

Aug 19, 2014

My notebook is setup with a local account instead being logged in with a Microsoft. Since Microsoft doesn't allow you to use OneDrive in Windows 8.1 with a local or network domain, I'm using the program syncDriver so I can continue using OneDrive on my notebook.

The issue I'm having is that when I add a link to OneDrive in my Windows Explorer Favorites, the link will get removed at some point without my interaction. My guess is that Windows is removing the link from favorites but I can't figure out when or why it's doing this.

how to stop Windows from doing this?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Apps Won't Open

Jun 7, 2013

I can't seem to open any off my apps from the start menu. When I open an app, the app closes back but is available at the sidewindow(?). It doesn't load or anything. When I click it, the app sort of minimizes to the sidewindow(?).

So I've been lurking around and one of the problems that I thought was happening to me is that I do not have the temporary internet files. C -> Users -> My Name -> AppData -> Local. I read that it should have a windows folder in the local folder and a temporary internet files in the windows folder.

I changed my local user to the microsoft account and then changed back to the local user using another username so that might affect these change in my pc.

Windows 8 All Tiles Apps And Programs Have Disappeared?

Jun 23, 2014

Yesterday I was watching a video on YouTube no problems when all of a sudden it shut down and didn't want to load back up, after clicking the shortcut on the desktop a dialogue window popped up saying that 'this program isn't in this location' (or something similar) and if I wanted to delete the shortcut. Thinking nothing much of it I rebooted my machine.

After rebooting, some of my tiles were missing and the rest of the tiles had a small black 'X' on the corner, I couldn't open any of my apps and searching for them resulted in the icon popping up in the charms bar but was unable to open them. Literally 20 seconds later all of the tiles disappeared, the charms bar stopped working and the whole screen looked completely blank.

One more reboot later and I have no tiles on the main start screen, no tiles when I swipe down to all apps, no search results for control panel or task manager, the charms bar works but all I can do is access my WiFi network, volume and screen or search.

The tablet is a Dell Latitude 10 ST2.

Here's a few photos

Apps / Software :: Missing Tiles / Can't Find App Using Search

Sep 13, 2013

I was working on desktop mode and suddenly my screen went black. After about 4 seconds everything returned to normal but when I went to the Start screen all of my application tiles were missing. Except for Desktop & Store tiles, all the others had disappeared. I tried to search the missing apps and pin it to Start but it cannot be found. They wont even show in All apps.

I don't think the apps are deleted because from desktop I can open image/audio files with Photos and Music app.

Not sure if the problem maybe a result of me accidently changing the AppData folder to visible a couple of minutes earlier.

Apps / Software :: How To Recreate Desktop App Tiles To Start Screen

Nov 10, 2013

Under 8.0 Pro, as I added traditional desktop applications (i.e., Office 2013), the install would create both shortcuts in the traditional program menu as well as Tiles on the Metro start screen. After upgrading (in-place) to 8.1 Pro, all of the traditional applications and their shortcuts in the traditional program menu were still there, but the Tiles on the Metro start screen were gone.

How can I recreate Metro Tiles for my traditional desktop applications?
