    Metro screen

    Hi everyone.
    When I am in the metro start screen with all the tiles if I right click all that comes up is up is " name groups " when a while back a bottom task bar would pop up and also a " customize " circle.

    Any Ideas? I may have changed some settings because I am for ever being adventurous and neglect to make a restore point.

    Thank you,


    PS: I run win8.1

Just starting to use Windows 8, on a laptop with no touch screen.
