    Windows 8.1 apps get minimized there selves instantly afte


    Hi guys. I need some help with my Windows 8.1 Core. So whenever I try to launch any app from my start menu (apps installed by the Windows itself too) they just minimize and if I click on them they again minimize. I was updating the Windows and this happened. I have another local account on the PC, child safety account, the apps work with any disturbance and not minimizing like my administrator account. I want instant help guys.

    here is a video of the problem:
