    Opening apps solitaire, camera, video etc.


    I was enjoying playing solitaire, using my camera and video. Now I can't open these and many others from my desktop. What can I do to get these to open and use again.

    Hi Henrytobias,

    Welcome to the Forum

    I am not sure your exact error, if this is a problem with your "desktop" shortcuts have you tried deleting and recreating?

    Also for solitaire :

    If you are using a Catalyst driver for my ATI graphic card.I turned off "morphological filtering" in 3d gaming application settings.
    If this is actually on the Start screen you can try going through the solutions below:

    Apps and Tiles Not Working or Responding: Fix in Windows 8

    If none of this helps please can you post more information and preferably a screenshot

    All the best for now!

    Cheers,
    Harry

    You sent me the link that can only be used by an administrator. What use is that?

    How about having the administrator do it.

    I can do that. How do I do that with the assurance that you are not a hacker? I don't have anything on my computer of any significance, but one hears so many horror stories about identity theft etc.

    Not me. I meant you sign in to your administrator account and do it.

    Do you have an administrator account on your computer?

    Then you'll need to reinstall Windows.
