    windows 8 "shop" tile


    i lost my "shop" tile completely after i installed some programs that i use Google crhome, skype,winrar, revo uninstaller etc.

    is it because of these programs that i mentioned or is there some "bug" in windows?

    Can moderator or someone move this to software and apps section?

    I don't think any of those programs are causing this. Try searching for Store in the Metro Start Screen and pin it back.

    If that does't work, you can try this: SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Or you can try refreshing or resetting your system:

    Refresh Windows 8

    Reset Windows 8

    If you right click a blank area on your apps page the All Apps button should appear at the bottom. Click that and see if it's still listed and then simply right-click and select Pin to Start.

    Hi there

    From the Charms (right hand logos)
    Go to Search Apps and search for the store app
    when you find it go to open File location
    then do ADD to Start menu.

    As I said I cant find it, it isn't Listed among other apps when I right click on the apps page.

    That's too bad, how about searching from the Charms bar as previously suggested? If not then reset perhaps.

    The OS itself should have a bug reporting button built in as an App until such time it's no longer preview/beta.

    That might help communicate things back to M$.

    Here are shortcut locations for the Windows Store.

    c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows Store.lnk

    c:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows Store.lnk

    c:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-store-client-ui_31bf3856ad364e35_6.2.8250.0_none_9c947011c1a490cf\Windows Store.lnk

    Those shortcuts link to this file.
    % w i n d i r % \ W i n S t o r e \ W i n S t o r e U I . d l l

    See if that file has been deleted.
    If it has been deleted, then you probably will have to Refresh again.

    If not, just find one of the shortcuts in the Folders listed above.
    Right click on the .lnk file and choose Pin to Start.

All Downloaded Apps have an "X" on the tile need repair
The default metro apps are OK. The store apps that I bought and downloaded from the Microsoft Store have an "X" in the lower right corner of their tile. When I click on the tile, I can go to the store and "repair" the App. How can I do this for all store apps at once, rather than one by one?
