How To Return From Tiles Section To Tiles Overview

Mar 30, 2013

Assume Is started a new Win8 system.Then at first the tile/frames overview appear.

When I click now on one of the tiles/frames (e.g. fin, news,...) then I jump to the corresponding section. Fine.

But how do I return to the tiles/frames overview?

I tried ESC key but this didn't work.

I found no "RETURN to overview" link/button neither.

Whats the magic key press?

Move / Create Shortcut Tiles On Start Screen For Wireless Section For Modern UI Settings?

Feb 9, 2013

Is there an app or a way to move/create shortcut tiles on Start screen for Wireless section for Modern UI settings. I just bought TF810 (YUPI!!!) and would love to have quick access to those parts of the system (sort of as in WP 7.x/8).

Battery level shown on tile/start screen (it is only shown in detail on task bar) would also be useful. I keep searching for it but no luck so far ....

Some Tiles Not Working Under Win 8.1?

Jul 6, 2014

After running win 8.1 for several months (mainly by running desktop and working as I always used to with occasional forays into the win 8.1 start screen and clicking tiles), I have discovered that just recently many of the tiles don't work correctly or at all.

Two different examples; in the win 8.1 start screen I can see news displayed in my 'news' tile, cant see a tile displayed in my clock tile to name 2.

If I click on the affected tiles, the screen fills with the coloured background and the news icon (or clock icon) then I get returned to the desktop with this 'tile' now an icon in the bottom menu bar, no content is shown. Some however do work such as my Facebook, internet explorer, music and LinkedIn tiles to name a few.

I don't know if it is relevant but just recently I have been having issues with Drop Box not being able to start on power up and telling me to sort out permissions. On one occasion it asked me to change inheritance settings (don't know what that is) but it did not work so I changed them back.

Tiles Just Flash On And Off Together - Cannot Access Any App

Feb 25, 2014

HP laptop i5 Radeon graphics Windows 8. When it it starts up and you log in the tiles just keep flashing on and off together and you can't use any apps or do anything. There are no error messages. It will not boot into safe mode with f8. When you go to troubleshooting. It will not let you use system restore it says preparing system restore then the screen goes black with just the cursor, which still moves. It will not let you use refresh or repair, the same thing happens. The hard drive appears to be doing something and the machine gets hot but after 1hour the screen is still black and it appears just to be hanging. I cannot access command prompt either.

Moving Tiles In Windows 8 / 8.1 Up And Down?

Jan 26, 2014

Basically you can move windows 8 tiles right and left but if you have multiple rows you cannot directly swap tiles up and down.

For example imagine I have two rows of tiles each with two tiles so a1, a2 and b1 and b2. I can swap a1 with a2 and b1 with b2 without any issues. However moving b1 with a1 forces a1 to move to the right meaning a2 is now where b1 would be.

I'd love to be able to just swap them so swapping a1 and b1 would swap the two around and leave the others alone. Is there a way around this?

How To Add Fifth Row To Live Tiles Screen

Dec 4, 2012

So, I was trying to add a fifth row to my Live Tiles screen, as I have 4.

According to this: [URL]...

There are a certain number of maximum rows you can add based on your screen resolution.

My screen has a 1366x768 (Not mentioned there). Based on that, I can only have 4 rows. But, what could happen if forced a fifth row with that registry hack?

Why Icons For The Tiles Are Blurry

Nov 12, 2012

I just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Some of the icons for the tiles on my Windows 8 are blurry. It's nothing major, but they're not as crisp or high resolution as I remember. Here's a picture:[URL]....

You can see that with Mail, Skydrive, Camera, Maps, Music, and Store, the icons are all a little bit fuzzy and not as high resolution as they should be. Is this intended or not? I know it's minor but it really bothers me.

When I go to desktop it looks good. I tried to reinstall the graphicdriver but it did not work.

Here is what I have:
Windows 8 Pro
Nvidia Geforce 680
16 gb ram
Intel i7
Benq monitor

It is difficult to arrange them in the order you want.

Tiles Are Sorting Automatically Whenever Windows Wants

Apr 2, 2014

I like to have my tiles on the start screen sorted as I want and that they stay on the place I've moved them to.

But after each reboot of my computer Windows decides to re-arrange them.

This might be exciting for adventurers and explorers but I just want to use my computer quick and easy.

How I keep windows from re-arranging?

Clicking Live Tiles Does Nothing Most Of Time

I have to alt tab and then come back and then it works. Did they test this..? It doesn't do it on my laptops though.

Also the tiles ARE being clicked. They get punched in, but they don't actually do anything.

not that this is a hardware issue, but specs anyway:

Dell :: Windows 8 Tiles Don't Work

Nov 26, 2013

I've been stuck without windows tiles for quite some time now. I've attempted many of the various tips and tricks out there to get this problem fixed.  The one I can't try is the system refresh because the windows tiles don't work which mean I can't open PC Settings to get that started.  

Is there a way I can do this without having to open PC Settings which wont actually open.

i have windows 8 installed and would love to upgrade to windows 8.1 but because the tiles dont work i cant open the windows store.  Just like most people out there the other tiles work like chrome etc just not the standard windows 8 ones.  no i dont have any additional antivirus or firewalls turned on. Yes I've tried to reset the tile service, yes I've tried the app diagnostic tool. Nothing is working.

White Border On Start Menu Tiles

Jul 17, 2014

I've noticed that when booting to the Start Menu on powering up that there's now a white border around the top left tile. This border can be moved to any adjacent tile by using the relevant keyboard arrow keys.

My other PC's only show the border AFTER an arrow key is pressed which is classed as the correct default behaviour after a bit of Googling. I

I have the problem since a few weeks (mostly after a tile update), and I'm not the only one, my friend has it too on both his laptop and desktop, that the live tiles, or actually some of them, for example weather, are not refreshing anymore.

Also I tried to deinstall and reinstall the weather app, but now it doesnt even show the "use live tile" button anymore (look at picture).

User - Pinned Tiles Gone From Start Screen?

Dec 30, 2012

This morning I found that my Start Screen had reverted to its factory setting. All the tiles I had deleted (Ebay, Netflix, Music, Games, and so on) were back again, and all the tiles I had added were gone -- about 60 tiles that were links to my folders and to certain programs, etc. Almost all of the links were to desktop apps or folders. I could pin them all back again, but I don't have a list of them. My desktop and my data are OK, but I need those tiles back. I've been on the phone with Microsoft, and they did a system restore from 12/26, but it didn't restore the tiles even though they were there yesterday. If I could just find a list of their names, it would be enough.
