My computer came with 8.0. I upgraded to 8.1 because of issues with 8.0. When I click on most of the apps on the start page (store, weather, maps, calendar, etc.), the app briefly displays the green or blue or purple startup page and then flips me back to the start screen. If I move my cursor to the upper left corner I see that the app is there, but if I click on it I get flipped right back to the start screen. I have tried creating a new user and when I log in as the new user the apps work. I suppose I can go through the effort of setting up all of my older programs for the new user but it seems like a lot of work since it appears that I have to set each one up separately. Is there a fix for the apps in my original user or is there an easy way to "clone" all of the desktop applications I have set up on my original user configuration?
