    Games Tile Acting Weird


    Hi Everyone,

    The tile for "Games" is acting like it's displaying info when it's not. It's been doing this for two weeks. Here's a screenshot:

    It starting displaying correctly yesterday but in under thirty seconds it went back to displaying nothing. I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro. Has anyone had this before?
