    How to disable the Metro Messaging app


    Hey all,

    I need some help disabling/logging out of the Metro Messaging app. Since I got Live Messenger installed I don't need the Metro app. However, it still signs me in and in Live Messenger it says that I'm online on 2 locations (both on the same system). All my messages show up in both applications, which is annoying and useless.. Can't seem to find a way to disable the Metro one.

    Help?

    Hi Robin,
    Right click the App in Metro and click "Unpin from Start" in the bottom left. Don't uninstall it as it will uninstall Calendar, People and Windows Live.

    Didn't work right away, but after a reboot it did! Thanks. Really like Win8.
