    Can't view installed Bing Apps


    My upgrade from 7 Pro to 8 Pro was smooth.
    I tried to use location on the Bing weather app and it was over 100 miles out. Couldn't figure out how to solve this so uninstalled it.
    Then I did something obviously stupid, I did a restore. I thought that by 'all apps' WIndows 8 did not mean programs, but it evidently does (a slight rewrite would make that clearer to those of us who don't identify all apps as including programs).
    Ok, I had to reinstall programs, a nuisance but that's all. However, all my Bing apps are now gone.
    They appear in 'Your apps' in the store as in my computer named DOUGW-PC but a search doesn't find them. Reinstalling doesn't do anything either. I can install new apps and they show up fine.

    Hello Doug, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You would need to reinstall the app from "Your apps" in the Store instead. "Your apps" is only a reference of what apps you installed for that PC. It doesn't mean that they are currently installed or not.

    Option One in the tutorial below gives more information about this to help more if you like.

    Apps - Install Metro Apps from Windows 8 Store

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks, but it shows 22 Apps as currently installed, but I can only see in Start the one I installed since the rest disappeared. Search doesn't show them up either. Reinstalling makes no difference.

    Never mind, found a way to actually uninstall them using Powershell - Script Remove Windows Store apps in Windows 8 and that's worked.
