    Windows 8.1 Update 1 Bug - Unresponsive Metro Functions

    Okay, so I just recently installed my Windows 8.1 Update 1 OS to my PC. It's been going great, most of my favorite apps and games installed and worked perfectly. But I've been getting this bug rather frequently, but don't know from where it all begins.

    The OS functions normally at first, but then after I switch from a few metro apps to the desktop, and then back, I lose all control with corner functions. What I mean to say is, the task switcher charms, or the charms bar, or the start button or actually even the ability to close the app by pushing it down... nothing seems to work. The app functions normally and I can use my keyboard to Alt+Tab out of the mess, but this keeps happening.

    The only way I can recover from this is by restarting, but then, it's just a temporary solution. I'd like to know if this is happening to any others here? And if yes, anybody pondered on why? I'm ready to send in any logs, if created to find out what is the root cause to this. Please do help out!

    Thank you,

    Never had that happen that bad but instead of restarting, you can go to Task Manager / End Task and shout them from there.
