    Windows's 8.1 apps


    I'm trying to access my previously installed apps. When I right click on the window's 8 desktop the bar that pops up at the bottom does not have the all apps option on the left side. Any ideas or suggestions as to what is wrong?

    Because they changed the behavior of 8.1 from how 8 was. You have to Right click, and then you get the "All Programs" up. You will also have to reinstall any Metro apps that did not get installed if you did a clean install of 8.1.

    Thanks! I don't remember if I did a clean install (probably did). I unpinned one app from the desktop and I can't find it either.

    You're welcome.

    You most likely used "Pin to Start" on your desktop. If so, it'll be on your Start screen instead of Apps screen. On your Start screen, scroll the screen to the right more to see if it may just be out of view.
