    Where are the people in my people tile?

    • Brand Spanking Newbie
    • People tile large and set for active
    • LOTs o' contacts listed when I click on tile

    When I first installed Windows 8, I used my Microsoft account and the People tile was full of userpix.

    Then I decided that I wanted to keep it simple, i.e. local account only. It didn't take me long to figure out why that was a bad idea so I went back and reset it to use my Microsoft account.

    My people folder(?) - when I click on the people tile, my screen fills with all the contacts listed in my accounts (google, microsoft and twitter - I don't do facebook or linkedin or the others).

    BUT the People tile itself remains empty. Just a red rectangle with the white people graphic. How can I get my people back in it???

    Well, after a couple of reboots for other reasons, now the people are back in the people tile.

    However, now the mail tile no longer shows unread mail.

    The wifi connection (set as auto connect) never auto connects at reboot.

    And IE refuses to remember my desired home screen.

    I'm thinking that maybe there are some things Microsoft has yet to fix OR my ASUS UX31 Winows7 laptop did NOT want to be upgraded...

People app in Software and Apps
When using this people app, how can I associate windows messenger (2012) to send sms messages. Every thing else is associated with the sms service...Skype, Google, Facebook but no messenger. It would be nice if there was an option to do instead of have two different pieces of software/apps in use.
