I am using windows 8.1 RTM version.
I cannot find my desktop tile or the store app anymore. I have tried searching with the search charm too. I checked various users and they are not there either. Some desktop programs have gone missing too

I will appreciate any help from you guys

I HATE WIN8 but here may be a fix...


i lost tiles in win8...

copy and paste into a admin prompt...

powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $Env:SystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml


hit Enter.


Now in that same Administrator Command Prompt type or paste:

start "" "ms-windows-store:"
