    All my tiles either crash or will not open at all

    A few weeks ago I noticed that none of my tiles showed their little icons, like the gear for the Settings tile, etc. I clicked on the weather tile, and it brought up the screen like it was loading for a split second, but then brought me back to my desktop. Some of the time it doesn't even try to bring up the loading screen, it just immediately returns me to the desktop. Also, I just tried to screen shot the tiles page, but nothing happened. I can't screen shot my desktop either. I don't know if this is possibly related, I have not tried to screen shot anything lately.

    Thank you all!
