    No Settings Under Metro App Tiles?


    Hi,

    I have just upgraded from Windows 7 64 bit to Windows 8 and the metro app tiles are not working correctly.

    For example, if I click on the mail tile and then go to charms, settings, I get no settings to add account. See screen capture.

    The dots just spin round and round, nothing happens and I can't add an account or do anything.

    All that is listed under settings is "Permissions" and "Rate and Review".

    Can someone help?

    Thanks

    Have you updated the Mail app since you installed Windows? If not, open the Windows Store and look for the word "updates" at the upper right; click there and install all the updates it offers. Most of the built-in apps have been updated once or twice since Windows was released.

    Hi

    I ran windows update and that worked but made no difference. I am really the only one that is experiencing this problem after that upgrade from 7 to 8? All the apps seem to have the same issue. See attached for picture of the app store when I click on it I get the same issue.. i.e. no settings. My Windows 7 install was working without issue before the upgrade and it was a standard install on my Dell inspiron, there were no errors during the upgrade process…

    Confused?

    Thanks
    Michael

Hi, How do you create more space between the tiles such as in the pic below? Also how do you do it so you can have just 1 row in a group such as below? http://i46.tinypic.com/vpu79l.png Thanks Matt
