    I guess it goes without saying that there is no one in Iran that you can get what you need from. No computer buddies in Iran? Go to a computer store? Go to a university?

    I was missing ALL the Metro basic ICONS : windows app store, internet explorer, mail , maps , messaging , music , videos ,news , people , photos , reader , travel , video ETC...
    please upload basic icons no more apps .
    thank u.
    These Tiles (Icons) in the start screen are not where you think they are and copy the links from C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs will not fix your problem. Here is the link that I created a while back on how to reset to your default Start Screen and Shawn also had a tutorial for this.

    BTW, This thread has been marked "Solved". In the future, please create your own thread to ask question. Thanks.

    Unfortunately no one in eight forums didn't upload those icones for me (i don't know why???)(is it have any cost for you???)(is it harm your computers???)
    mr.rich (a member of eightforums.com) in this topic:
    Lost "Desktop" shortcut/tile in Metro UI
    he have uploaded 3 icons but i want all default icons(such as Camera,Videos,Musics,Weather,Travel,....)
    i have copied that 3 icons that i downloaded in my C:\ drive in:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    and it works .
    i can't find mr.rich for ask to uploading other icons for me.
    Please someone uploading that icons from his :
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    for me.(this icons don't contain your personal information)

    thank you for all tutorials that you taught me (but Unfortunately they didn't work for me )

    But are most of the basic icons not in the apps screen. If so, you can direct them to the metro.
    At least for me. I do not have the desktop in the metro, but can find this in the apps departement.

    Or i must be missing something.
