    All Apps screen not showing anymore


    I have windows 8 installed for just over a week now. Everything seems to work just fine untill today i found something that rather annoys me.

    When in the start/metro menu you right click on the bottom right corner you will have the 'all apps' option. When i clicked on it a few days ago you go to see a list of all your installed apps, like it supposed to. But now when i click on it i just get a blank (in my case) green screen with nothing on it. Pressing the windows key will get me back at start.

    Also when searching for apps (windows key+q) it seems like the searching freezes and crashes sending me back to the original start screen. Does anyone have the same problem and maybe a solution? I have the same problem on my laptop where i installed the same windows 8

    I've tried searching for it here, but wasn't able to find anything like it. I'm using the 32 bit version of Windows 8 pro.

    Have you run sfc?

    Open an elevated command prompt and type sfc /scannow

    EDIT: Needed to run it as administrator

    I had something similar to that happen to me when I was running the RP. Updating my graphics drivers fixed it.

    Graphics drivers are all up to date, i'm 100% sure of that: Looks like something is missing:

    Did you install anything that changes the Start Menu background?

    I do have the app 'Bing wallpaper' but that should only change your desktop. cant think of anything that changes/changed my start menu wallpaper. It's one of those stock green images now

    Hello Sincerinhoo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Refreshing Windows 8 should be able to fix this for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
