    All Apps Not Working


    I just get a blank screen when I try to see "All Apps". Also, when I click on search and then apps, the cursor jumps out of the search box instantly when I type any letter, and then that screen is blank too. Anyone else experiencing this? How do I fix it? Thanks.

    Hello there!

    I wonder, did you do an upgrade installation?

    Yes, I did, because I have way too many old apps to reinstall them all. Is that the problem? Thanks

    Hello sfguy,

    Many people have been having this issue after doing an upgrade. Usually it takes refreshing Windows 8 to fix this.

    More trouble than it's worth. I'll just use "Start 8" instead.

    I think that's a bad idea. Not using Start8, but ignoring the problem. The reason is that this is likely a symptom of a larger problem, and you will likely see other weird issues that could be even more frustrating.

    Imagine a bridge that is structurally damaged, you may be just fine walking over it, or it might collapse on you, causing far worse damage than if you had just fixed it to begin with.
