    apps with just their text names - no live tiles


    I've got a similar problem - this is what my modern UI looks like - https://www.dropbox.com/s/9epuc33qo6...s%20Broken.doc

    It's got all of the apps with just their text names - no live tiles. My store opens, but I can't install any apps. I know something is wrong with like 10 registry values, but I don't know how to fix them. I don't get why you couldn't just copy and paste a healthy registry set over my folder which has some errors. Anyone have any ideas?

    Whats wrong with what registry values?

    Have you tried the modern UI repair tool just to see if it kick starts the icons? I have no idea if it will work but it is a MS fix for certain UI issuees

    Link: Download and run the Modern UI App troubleshooter.
