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).

Photo App Not Showing Skydrive Photos?

Dec 26, 2012

I have many photos on my Skydrive. I have signed in with my skydrive/hotmail/outlook (whatever you call it), on windows 8.

I've seen in options in Photos app, Skydrive is checked. But the Photos app doesn't show my photos on my Skydrive.

I would have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the photos app, but its 505 MB. So not feisible.

Should I convert my account to local account and then again convert the account to windows account. Will it solve the problem.

Repositioning Start Screen Tile Groups

Nov 2, 2012

I'm using an eyefinity setup that makes three monitors appear as one 5292 x1050 resolution monitor. I would like the tile group positions to default to the center of the screens. Right now the tile groups are positioned to the far left of the left monitor. Is there anyway to get the tile groups to stay more to the center of the available screen space so I don't have to keep looking to far left all the time? I'd also like to know if there's a way to add space between tile groups. The bezel compensation eyefinity feature is causing some rows of tiles to get covered up. Are there any settings for this or registry hacks I don't know about?

Deleted Desktop Tile From Start Screen

Oct 29, 2012

I deleted the default desktop tile (the one that shows your desktop wallpaper) from the start screen. I've tried Recuva to see if I could still recover the file, and searched the internet and the installation disk. Unfortunately, the file it is nowhere to be found... Is there's another way to retrieve it?

Running 8.1 - Odd Desktop Tile On Start Screen

Aug 28, 2014

I see on my friends laptops that they have all four resizing choices available on their Desktop tile in the start menu. I don't know why but I do not have the large option available, as you can see in the picture attached. I'd like to have it like the tile next to it.

I'm running 8.1.

Can't Open Photos Of Any Kind With Windows Photo Viewer

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.

Can't Find Show Desktop Tile On Metro Start Screen

Mar 4, 2012

I upgraded to the CP a few days ago and just noticed a huge problem. The "Show Desktop" tile that is normally on the start screen be default has gone missing. I can't figure out how I got rid of it in the first place, but is there some way to add it back?

I have changed the title to more accurately reflect the problem. A bunch of the features that come with Windows 8 CP (the tablet friendly Settings page, Remote Desktop, the show desktop tile, The Windows Store, etc) all vanished shortly after I installed Windows 8. I tried reinstalling and the same thing happened again.

Browsers/Mail :: IE Tile On Win 8.1 Start Screen Opens Firefox

Aug 25, 2014

I'm running Windows 8.1. and recently I tried to launch Internet Explorer (11) from the start menu. It launched Firefox. I ran a search from the start menu for Internet Explorer found it and clicked. Again Firefox opened instead of IE. I clicked on an icon on my desktop set up to open a website in IE regardless of browser preferences. It opened Firefox and went to the homepage I have set in Firefox not to the URL I had set.

Opening IE by browsing to to C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe. workes just fine. Creating a desktop shortcut directly to the exe works fine. I played around with the associated programs for internet and even with everything defaulting to IE it would still open Firefox when clicking on the IE Tile on the start menu. I uninstalled/reinstalled IE11 with no change.

So I then uninstalled Firefox. Now clicking on the start icon for IE it brings up a box asking me something about an exe with a checkbox (can't remember exactly) and below that Internet explorer or I can choose other down below. If I chose IE it brought up another window asking what I wanted to do with iexplore.exe. Save/ Save As / Save and Run. None of the options opened IE. IE at this point still runs by going directly to the exe in Program Files.

Logged off as that user and logged back on as a different user and ie works just fine from that profile.

I'm guessing something in my registry is hosed, how I can repair this?

Apps / Software :: Upgraded To Win 8.1 - No Tile Created On Start Screen When Install New App

Dec 14, 2013

Just upgraded to 8.1 this weekend. Whenever I install a new app from the Store, it says it's installed, and I can search for it and play it, but it does NOT create a tile for the new app on my Start screen??

I can search for it, then right-click on it, and click on "Pin to Start" and it creates a tile on my Start screen, but I want it to create a new tile by default when I install an app, and it has stopped doing that!!!!

Apps / Software :: How To Associate All Photos With Windows Photo Viewer From Desktop App

Oct 24, 2013

First I thought it was slow. Then I got tired of waiting and figured out how to associate all my photos with the windows photo viewer from the desktop apps like I was used to with Windows 7

However, I would like to give it a fair chance to work. So, I am posting here.

When I click on the photo app, it shows some folders, sometimes it kicks me back to the desktop before I can click anytime. Other times, it may show a photo for a few seconds before kicking me back. Either way, this is not acceptable.

The app is not closing. It is still running because if I click the left corner, I see it and can access it again, if over for a second.

Is this experience common. I have had my windows 8 pc a week and I switched over to windows 8.1 about two days after I initially got it setup. I am a very experienced Windows 7 user. I am trying to be open minded about this new operating system.

(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.

How To Disable Scrolling On Start Screen Or Change Tile Scaling By A Small Amount

Mar 17, 2014

Is there any way to disable scrolling on the start screen or change the tile scaling by a small amount? I've got a 1680x1050 monitor and when there's 10 medium sized tiles across the screen, it activates the scroll bar, but there's no need for the scroll bar as all the tiles fit on the screen fine and scrolling only shifts them by a few pixels.

How to change the number of rows and a scaling tool that didn't work.

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.

Deleted Desktop Start Folder File - No Live Tile

Feb 9, 2013

A user provided the OP with a 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.
