    Photos appearing in Photo app live tiles that were deleted


    The metro photo app (that comes with W8) is showing photos on the live tiles that were deleted over a week ago.

    I've turns lives tiles on and off. I've unpinned from the start screen and then re-pinned. I deleted personal info from the tiles from the settings screen. I've verified that the photos are not on my computer (photo app is only showing the computer and skydrive). Has anyone else had this issue?

    while my link suggests solutions within top 5 results (e.g. here) that you haven't tried.

    Hello BRKING,

    "Let me Google that for you" is used as an automated search to provide the search results for you to try. This is done to make it easier instead of manually listing them.

    There is nothing rude about using this tool.

    No, it's actually used to mock people by suggesting that your answer can be solved via google search if you did it.

    I've already googled it and tried all the recommendations to no luck. I listed some of the suggestions but not all.
