    Thank you warmth. I added this for re-registering all apps as step 15.
    No problem. If you want to mention the source is here: Unable to launch Windows apps - Microsoft Community

    IMHO this should be mentioned somewhere in TenForums.

    You read my mind. I'll be creating a tutorial for it at Ten Forums to help others later tonight.

    win 8

    I'm glad to see Windows is so easy to use. (read sarcasm here)
    most of the icons on a 2 year old computer with Windows 8.1 installed do not work.
    To my thinking this is an important part of a windows based, touch screen system.
    Very basic and infrequent use. Very few downloads if any.

    the solution (perhaps solutions) I do not understand
    Run Windows Store App trouble shooter (can't find it, yes I read the feeds)
    Get or find the Builtin Administrator Account (don't even know if I have one and cannot find it)
    Go to a Elevated Command Prompt (there are 5 options here)
    Go to a Power User Tasks Menu ( you use steps 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 here. I couldn't find it.

    Folks this is not easy to use.
    When I lookup a problem the solution (possibly solutions) are more difficult to understand than the problem.
    Am I missing something here on this easy to use system.

    I just want to open programs. Cursor, touch. I don't care
    This is a major problem
    Sorry about the rant but necessary.

    very sorry I bought this computer and windows 8

    Hi there, my issue is that all of the standard tiles have x in bottom right corner (Store / News / finance etc). When I click on them they flicker and go to minimised state on desktop. Same happens for change pc settings

    This happens for 2 users (Admin and user) that I recently added. For 1 other admin user all is OK.

    Any help appreciated.
