    Click on Metro tile .. flips .. right back to Metro Page ?


    I have a new HP Windows 8 Pavillion Desktop. This morning when I click on any Metro page tile it flips as if going to Mail or People or Weather, etc. then flips right back to the Metro page. I called HP and they say it's corrupted and I have to call MS? I did this "refresh" thing once with this pc and lost more than I care to lost again. Isn't there something that can be done to fix this? Thanks great for any help! Jack ":-\

    BTW, I checked restore points. Apparently by default it's not turned on. I though I had plenty of restore points as Advanced System Care by iObit reports every time I delete a program from their unistall programs feature that it is creating a restore point. Apparently not. So I can't try a restore point. I did turn it ON however. Again,

    Hi jack...I had the exact same thing last night. Almost all the apps did that. Some however still work. The uninstall/reinstall seems to fix those apps that have the problem. I think the issue began right after I downloaded and installed the "Patch Tuesday" Windows Updates. Have not uninstalled all those updates yet to see if they are the cause. Did you by any chance get the updates??

    Seems I had the problem before the updates but I cannot be sure so there's something to what you say. I dont care to un-install the MAIL CALENDAR and such. Seems I did once by mistake and had a hard time restoring them for some reason. They won't show up in Windows Store as being needed to install, or rather, in the list of un-installed apps. But I should try. Thanks, jack

Metro Tile Nesting? in General Support
Is there a way to nest or embed Metro tiles so they act like folders? For example, Microsoft Office deposits at least eight tiles on my Start Screen. I rarely use any but Word and Excel, so I would like simply a generic "MS Office" tile that, when clicked, gives me all of the Office tiles. I...
