    How to Sync App Licenses in Windows 8 and 8.1

    information   Information
    If a license for a Store app is out of sync with the license installed on your PC, the app might stop working, not showing up to date live tile information, or display a black "x" or cross in a white circle in the bottom right of the tile.

    This tutorial will show you how to sync your app licenses in Windows 8 and 8.1.




    Here's How:

    1.
    Open the Start screen, and click/tap on the Store tile to open it. (see screenshot below)

    That's it,
