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.

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.

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 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?

Maintenance :: Live Tiles Not Working Anymore?

Feb 2, 2013

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. It just shows the blue weather tile. When I open it, it works though, news the same. 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).

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.

Setup Installation :: Live Tiles Stop Working When Join Domain

Jan 17, 2013

Trying Windows 8 at work and bought new Samsung 700t tablet. Windows 8 works fine with local user (linked to live id) and all our software including Symantec Endpoint 12.1.2. As soon as I join to domain (server 2008) and reboot the live tiles no longer function. Have total reset several times and tried refresh and restore points. My guess is that has to be default behavior of Win 8 GPO compared to 2008 domain GPO. We are very plain on our policies and so far have not found anything on local computer or GPO that can correct issues.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Professional - Live Tiles Aren't Updating

Oct 31, 2013

Many of my live tiles (Weather, Fitness, Music, Games) don't show anything aside from their logos. They are turned on. I've probably quadruple checked them at this point. For troubleshooting, I have:

Verified that those tiles are turned on.
Verified that the time service is running.
Verified that all the apps and/or their licenses are synced.
Uninstalled/reinstalled the apps.
Removed McAfee (replaced it with Avast free).
Run the UI diagnostic/repair tool that you guys have in one of the long stickied threads.
Verified that they're set to animate via appearance and performance settings.

It looks like the tiles are receiving data, as the Weather app currently has a little 'i' icon in the bottom right hand corner, and there is a weather alert in my area. It's just that there's no temperature/background. It's just the blue tile with white sun. Very odd.

Refreshing this computer is not an option, as I use it for work as well as general computing use.

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.

Taskbar Inconsistently Appearing In ModernUI?

Apr 8, 2014

I just installed all the updates contained in 8.1 update 1. I like the way the taskbar pops up in Modern UI, but it seems inconsistent.

If I use the 'Start button' to switch to the Store, and I keep the mouse on the taskbar, the taskbar stays. If I move off it, it disappears. If I move the mouse back to the bottom of the screen, the majority of the time nothing happens. If I wiggle the mouse around at the bottom of the screen, after a while the taskbar appears. Sometimes, when I move off the taskbar, it doesn't disappear immediately.

How To Prevent Keyboard Shortcuts Panel From Appearing

Mar 27, 2014

Regularly, when using keyboard shortcuts a Keyboard Shortcuts panel appears automatically. I can't find a way to close the panel out.

The only way I can close it is to shut the computer down.

Is there a way to open the panel, manually, if needed, and then close it?

If not, is there a way to prevent the panel from appearing at all?

Edit: The panel is displayed every time I use a keyboard shortcut.

Solved: To make the panel hide, press Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Right-cursor-key.
