Most other tiles can be resized in 4 sizes (SMALL,MEDIUM,WIDE,LARGE).

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?

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.

Clicking Live Tiles Does Nothing Most Of Time

Sep 19, 2012

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.

1920x1080 is the display res at 120hz

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:

2x120gb vertex 3 raid 0
2xgtx460s sli + 120hz asus vg236h
2600k @ 4.6ghz

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).

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).

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.

Windows 8 - Cannot Make / Click Administrative Choices

Sep 10, 2013

I recently upgraded to windows 8, and for some reason within the control panel, I click any options that have the admin shield icon next to them, when i click them, absolutely nothing happens.

And I can't delete any folders from programdata/program files/x86 because it "requires administration action".

Also when removing items from the "uninstall program list" it requires administration action, i say yes, and nothing happens.

Yet, running program's as admin from the desktop, seems to work.

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.

As soon i run an .exe file , i get the error ""The extended attributes are inconsistent"" on googling, i found that it can be resolved by disabling the sound of UAC but this didn't work for me.

A screenshot of the error is :

And for registrybooster.exe it is slightly different :

Debugging :: BSOD On Startup / Playing Games - Inconsistent But Common

Feb 27, 2014

Been trying to deal with a BSOD problem that resulted from KERNEL_CHECK_SECURITY_FAILURE (or something along those lines). I did some research and got it could be the RAM, HDD, or Drivers.

Scanning the RAM for 16 hours gave me two errors on test 10, passes 1 & 9. Testing the sticks individually found nothing, testing both slots found nothing. I can only assume those were false positives.

Next, I tried driver verifier. Boom. Instant crashes. Now, disabling it, I have the minidump file. Which driver is causing this problem?

Games for Windows Live won't install in 8.1 x64, nor will .net framework 3.5, even though I enabled it. I thus lost DiRT 3, Microsoft Flight, Batman:Arkham Asylum and Batman:Arkham City.

Windows 8 Explorer - Folder Size Feature?

Dec 26, 2012

It was very upsetting in case of Windows 7 the system explorer was unable to retrive folder size information. It was possible to preview file size in detail view but not folder size.

How is this feature in case of Winodws 8 explorer. Is the appropriate hook exposed in API or is it still missing as it was in case of Winodws 7?

Accounts :: How To Remove Live ID From Windows 8 Store

Nov 26, 2013

When I first started this job I was the first user on a new PC with Windows 8. I was asked to set up a Skype account which I did by creating a new Windows Live e-mail since I didn't want to use my personal one for business. I had continual problems with some conflict (I never found but believe it was caused by Skydrive) that caused my Live account to continuously need a password reset. After much frustration I set up a Skype direct account and closed the Live account.

Today I tried to go into the Windows Store to download an app and it's still asking me to log-in with the old, closed Live account. I have literally been sitting here for an hour and a half trying to find a way to log-in to the store with a different user and e-mail. There is nothing. I tried Microsoft live chat support which was really no support at all. I printed out and tried the instructions I found on this site for signing in with a different Microsoft account but it doesn't work as nowhere am I given the option on the screen to sign in with a different account. It shows my Live account with no option to change to another and a password box with the message that too many attempts were made to log-in blah blah blah reset the password. But, the account is closed so this is impossible to do (yes, I even tried that method but it tells me my account is closed).

Microsoft's instructions to do this by managing user accounts does not work as there is no user account on this PC associated with that e-mail address. I log in daily with a local administrator account and the only other account is Guest. I log in to Skype with a Skype (not Live) account. I log into Outlook e-mail with a business/local e-mail account. The Skydrive account is also no longer used as we switched to Dropbox.

I tried doing the instructions to clear the Windows Store cache (run>wsreset.exe) but that did nothing to remove this account.

Any information about how to remove an e-mail account associated with the store, that is no longer a valid/open e-mail account.
