    general help needed

    everything seems to be running ok except for one thing. I can go to the store and download apps but when i click on them to run/play them, they pop open and immediately close. Very frustrating when i would really like to play the games/apps I've downloaded. Can anyone tell me how to remedy this problem?

    Welcome to Eight Forums, carliami. It's good to have you aboard.

    Does it happen to all of the apps you open or just new ones? Is your screen resolution set to at least 1366 768?

    If that is ok, you may want to try SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8[1]=Performance. You may have to run it two or three times.

General Questions in General Support
Does Win8 have a "Help and Support" and if so how do get it? How do I setup files to see extensions? How do I get to "My Computer"? How do I get to the "Control Panel"? All my questions so far about how to get around in Win8. I am sure there will be more of those.
