    Problem with Start screen

    Hey boys and girls! I have a little problem with my start screen, it has been doing just fine until recently when all my apps got weird, only the appicture, not the app itself. I'll show you a photo.Click image for larger version.
    See how the apps are not in high resolution. That happened a while ago and a couple of days ago it was just fine. Anyone got any ideas on how to solve it?

    Hi Fillelito. Welcome to EightForums.

    I don't know about solving it other than a refresh. You may want to wait for someone else to answer. I wonder if this was due to the major update the other day?
