    'browse' PROBLEM


    so I go to my 'change pc settings' or even any app that requires browsing for a picture using the windows 8 HUD instead of file explorer. Every time I try to press 'browse' or other specific options, the screen that is supposed to pop up just flashes for a fraction of a second and dissapears.doesn't matter how many times i press it. this only happens with the new windows 8 GUI/HUD or whatever it's name. is there some kind of code or button i can use?

    The Browser is built in to the Start Screen Side of Windows 8, so there is no other way to browse for Tile Apps.

    Try running "SFC /Scannow" in an Elevated Command Prompt a few times and see if it replaces any bad files.

    just to clear things up i don't mean the search bar/button. I mean when i'm trying to change for example an account picture, clicking the 'browse' button just flashes a screen and dissapears. i'll try what you said.

    alright your idea seemed work. Now i feel dumb, I was thinking it was a file interraction rather than just a small script bug.

    Yah I knew exactly what you were talking about, it's the Browser you get when you use a Tile App, it's pretty generic, but it looks the same for all Tile Apps. I hate it actually.

    Just keep your eye on it, if it acts up again let me know and we'll try a DISM command.
