    icons on the metro page


    not sure what's going on but none of my icons on the metro page work but 3.
    internet explorer, windows explorer and disktop. are the others blocked or what could be happening?

    thanks

    Log off and back on, or restart. Do they all work then?

    I myself have found the build pretty buggy actually...it is a dev preview (pre-beta) after all.

    You might have mentioned that in your first post then.


    How about trying the Refresh option in Win 8?

    Go to the start menu - control Panel on the main Metro desktop - General - Refresh Your PC (follow instructions for that).

    Or go to the More settings at bottom there - (the old style Control Panel) - Recovery - Refresh.

    Make sure you're aware of what it will do though (will remove any third party apps you've installed).

    that didn't work,
    a green screen came up and said there was a problem with the Refresh and nothing was changed or something like that.

    but again thank you for your help
