Windows 8 Preview - From Metro UI Almost All Applications Cannot Be Launched

Oct 5, 2011

I have installed the ioWin8 Dev Preview on a HP Mini 210-1000 (twice) and it appears to install without issue but from the Metro UI almost all of the applications cannot be launched. Windows Explorer and Control Panel are the only ones that will launch, though the others do react visibly to being clicked on and they can be manually rearranged using the mouse and dragging.

Is there a Service that needs to be started or a configuration setting I am missing??

Apps / Software :: Xbox Video App Won't Download Purchased Movie

Feb 12, 2014

I have a dell venue pro. I rented a movie on the pre-installed video app (xbox). I opted to download the movie so I can watch it remotely. I got a download error because of low disc space. The c drive is low on memory but I have a completely empty microsd card with more then enough room for the movie. How can I make the app download onto the msd card instead of the main drive? The app itself has no such option in the settings. I've tried to change the pathway but the app still seems to want to download the the c drive first.

Gaming :: Stopping Power User Task Menu From Appearing

May 15, 2013

I am having trouble with a few games that require a substantial amount of right-clicking during game play.

At some point, the mouse will be (in game) but hovering over the bottom left corner of the screen, at which point the Win-X menu launches and kicks me out of the game and back to desktop.

Is there anyway to forcibly disable this menu totally, or to make sure it doesn't activate during full screen games?

Apps / Software :: Cannot Delete Program Thumbnails In Start Menu App Listing

Aug 20, 2014

I'm trying to delete the games listed here in my start menu programs list:

I've read online that you should be able to delete them by going into the program files folder for "Wildtangent games" but the problem is that I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED THAT FOLDER PERMANENTLY, so now when I click on "open file location" I get this games window that I cant do anything with:

I already tried re-installing wildtangent games to see if that would somehow re-instate access to these games' files in program files, but to no avail.

Is there still some way to make it so they dont show up?

Apps / Software :: Start Menu Icons And Shortcuts Not Refreshing / Updating

Aug 28, 2014

Within the last month or so, shortcuts on the start menu haven't been refreshing when their respective icons actually change. This only pertains to 3rd party programs and games--not those downloaded from the Microsoft store or included in Windows by default. For example, Steam recently changed the design of their logo. This change was never reflected in the start menu.

There are at least several other apps, like the PortableApps launcher, that the same is happening to. I've actually had to go to the entry in appdata and completely remove them and re-add them to get the changes to show. Never had an issue with anything like this until relatively recently, though I can't place one particular event as being definitive. It may have been like this for even longer and I wouldn't have known until a few things updated anyway.

See system spec for details, as everything is up-to-date. It would be nice for software to update icons and have those changes reflected rather than having to add manually.

Apps / Software :: Fresh Install Of Win 8.1 Pro - Slow Program Launch From Start Menu?

Apr 8, 2014

I just did a fresh install of 8.1 pro on my computer with an SSD. When i click the start button and use the apps window(not metro) to launch desktop programs they load extremely slow. The start menu doesn't even close on its own when i click to launch a program either i have to manually close it then a few seconds later the program will launch. When i open the program from explorer it loads instantly but for whatever reason doing anything through the new start menu is extremely slow.

Enable Confirm Window On Deletion - Stop Start Menu From Switching To Menu View And Change Taskbar Transparency

Mar 30, 2014

I've recently purchased a new laptop with Windows 8.1 pre-installed. First question is how do i enable a confirm window to pop up when deleting something? I don't like how i can just hit delete and it moves it (Only to the recycle bin, but i'd rather it didn't).

Secondly how do i stop the start menu from switching to that Windows 8 menu view? I did originally change it so that when you click the start menu (Bottom left in) it would actually bring up the start menu, but it seems to have reverted. On top of this how do i change it so that pressing the Windows button brings up the start menu rather than the Windows 8 menu view thing?

Thirdly how do i enable file details when in Windows Explorer. So in Windows 7 when you select a file it would give the size, name, author, date last edited etc in the details pane. How do i get that now?

Finally, how do i change my task bars transparency?

How To Make Task Menu Launch From Start Menu

Jun 14, 2013

When you launch skype from the startmenu it is a huge square, when i launch task manager from the startmenu it is launched to the desktop.

Could there be a way to make the task menu launch from the startmenu to be a big square like skype is "phone eddition"

This would be useful because when im in games and the game freezes, i can bring up the start menu like SUPER FAST and it is visible but when i launch the task manager it is behind the game no matter what, so im always pressing the key stroke of the first letter of the game and pressing delete to see if i closed the game or not.

Change Menu Background Color In Win 8.1? NOT Start Menu

Jun 22, 2014

I actually have no problem with the Win 8.1 Start menu, but the colors of the regular desktop environment are killing me. Namely, the weird, off-off white of the menus. The High-Contrast White option under Personalization gives me the right color for the menu backgrounds but everything else about the theme screams windows 3.1, so I'd rather not resort to using that.

Is there maybe a registry tweak that I can use to change this one little color? I've tried a few things but nothing so far has worked.

See attached pic to see what I'm talking about.

Apps / Software :: Creating Applications For Windows 8 Computer

Jun 9, 2014

I've searched the internet extensively for information on how to create an app for my windows 8 computer, but haven't found diddly squat. I see self-made apps in the store, but none of them are what I'm looking for so I decided to try and make my own. It's purely informational, with lists and links between pages inside the app.So how do I make an application?

Preferably, I'd like do it all with free stuff, because if I had the money to buy software, I'd just buy a smartphone and make an app for that. But the app I want to make is literally just a bunch of informational pages linking between each other for easy navigation. Like a PowerPoint, but as an app.

Apps / Software :: 8.1 Update - Windows Store And All Other Applications Won't Open

Oct 19, 2013

Attempted to update to 8.1 yesterday and the store just won't open. Every time I click on the Store tile it doesn't get past the green introductory screen before just disappearing (crashing).. Have restarted several times and used the link-through on the Windows 8.1 site. Also, I have since discovered that all apps won't open either (such as news and sports).

Using Windows Without Old Start Menu?

Jul 18, 2014

i do not want the very old Start Menu in Windows 8.1.

Installed Launch 8 from Stardock and suddenly i have the old Start Menu on the bottom.

I guess MS is trying to change the new Start Menu. Even in the APPS menu you get the Start Menu.

This does not happen on every pc overhere, but certainly on 2 of the 4.
