information   Information
When you install new modern apps from the Store or desktop apps in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update, the new apps will have a NEW message on it's tile on the Apps view screen to let you know that it's a new app.

When you install new modern apps from the Store in Windows 8.1 Update, you will also have a "# new apps installed" message in the lower left corner of your Start screen pointing you to the Apps view screen so you can see what you recently installed.


This tutorial will show you how to remove the "NEW" and "New apps installed" messages on your Start and Apps screens when you install new apps in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update.

Here's How:

1. Do step 2 or 3 below for what you would like to do.

2. The first time you open the new app, the "New apps installed" on Start in Windows 8.1 Update and "NEW" on Apps in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 Update will be removed.

OR

3. In Windows 8.1 Update, open your Apps screen, right click or press and hold on a new app to select (check) it and remove "NEW", then click/tap on an empty area in Apps. This will also deduct the app from the "# New apps installed" on Start.
