    Windows 8.1


    Sorry to bother you again Shawn. I updated to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 last week from the Store. I noticed for a few days afterwards that the Update Free to Windows 8.1 tile was still showing on the opening screen when I browsed the Store even though I'd already installed the update. Does that large Windows 8.1 Free update tile get removed from the Store after a while when you have updated to 8.1. I notice now that it is no longer there. As you know Ive been using the Windows Store App troubleshooter and everything seems to be OK now so Im wondering if the Update to Windows 8.1 free tile disappearing is normal behaviour after you've installed it?

    It's no bother Rick.

    Double check Windows Updates to also install any available updates. You may need to restart after installing them, and check again afterwards for anymore. Afterwards, it should be gone from the Store.

    Sorry for the confusion Shawn. The Update to Windows 8.1 tile has disappeared from the Store. I was asking if that is normal behaviour when you've installed it i.e does the Store realise that you've already installed it so it stops offering the Windows 8.1 Update?

    The reason I ask is even after I updated to Windows 8.1 it was still being offered from the Store for several days afterwards and it is only yesterday that Ive noticed that the Update to Windows 8.1 tile has suddenly disappeared.

    Yeah, it's normal. Sometimes it take a bit until the Store app updates to not show it. Installing Windows Updates usually helps to speed up the process though.

    None of the Store apps will open for me, I managed to get the Store itself and the PC Settings working via Step 7 from here but anything else I try to open sends me to the desktop with the app icon in my taskbar. Though when I click the icon, the screen flashes with the apps splash screen briefly but then it disappears again.

    I downloaded the AppsDiagnostic.diagcab file, but when I click on the advanced button there is no option to Run as Administrator. Only to Apply repairs automatically. and when I run it as is, I get the following results in my _logAppsACL.txt log.

    I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling some apps, and installing new apps I haven't used before, and they all give me the same problem.
