Does anyone other than me think this would work for controlling the All apps screen?
It's nothing more than our Programs folder on the screen with all subfolders displayed.
Like others, I think we should have an option to have them all collapsed into the title bar. Or to pick which ones we want pinned to the All apps board. As well as the Start screen.

In example below

1.- I showed a customized All apps

2.- then installed Microsoft Works which gave a popout

3.-clicked the title bar ? made choice to pin Word Processor & Spreadsheet to Start screen & Not to hide them on the All apps screen

4.- Shows those 2 programs plus a tile saying 4 more programs available (Get Started, Database, Calendar & Portfolio)

A:All apps tile control

Yeah, that would make the "Apps" screen more user friendly.

I'm personally going to try to make this simple, and yet cover all of my problems in a small thread.

I updated windows 8.1 pro with wmc from store.

I had NO problems, received no error messages, had no dc's, the power didn't shut off, the download didn't stop .. literally nothing went wrong. After update everything worked fine. All the apps are downloaded and were working fine.

But,

After 2/3 months since updated, I suddenly noticed that every live tile / folder / app / game / setting etc. which were working fine, now not working.
When I clicked on any tile, nothing happened. It just went to a blank green screen because my background color is green. It appears on the left upper corner as opened but doesn't run. When I click, I am send back to Start Screen or Desktop. Even Store and Windows Setting stopped working. So, naturally i started checking the web for answers, but couldn't find a solution to the exact problem i was having. I saw countless posts of people saying "Just uninstall / re-install the apps" but at first, I couldn't get my App store app to run. Again, it was just blank after several minutes of waiting. I was able to download it after using the search bar menu on the right side of my computer, and was able to start installing some apps.
NEXT PROBLEM:
So i thought that everything was going to be ok, but then I ran into another problem where some of the apps wouldn't install, and I received an error message with the code/number of 0x80070002... Read more

Okay, so I don't have this problem anymore. Well, last night, I had noticed that there was no desktop tile and if I typed "desktop" on the start screen there was no app for it Also, "Change PC Settings" wasn't starting. My guess is that it did that because I had a really hard time uninstalling a program so I had to try going by means of registry editing. So I ended up refreshing my computer (from the installation disc since PC settings wasn't working ) Now everything is back to normal. So all I want to know is how I can prevent this from happening again.

Thank you,

Hi I am not sure if this belongs on this thread and I have seen possible solutions but I don't know if they are what I need for my issue.
I have a Windows 8.1 Desktop (HP) and not an upgrade from Windows 8 (I don't think so at least).

I can get onto the desktop from the desktop tile and I have noticed the mail tile icon is on the task bar of the desktop. When I click on the icon it won't open.
I then try other tiles, including the live ones which are updating the news etc but they will not open. These icons also appear on the desktop tool bar.
I have only found that restarting the PC allows me to get the tiles/apps open.
Luckily each time I have restarted the tiles work as expected.

I have seen problems others have with tiles not opening and the issue seems to be something to do with going from Windows 8 to 8.1 and I bought the PC with 8.1 installed.
The issue occurred again on Sunday 9th November, the day before it was fine.
Before I tried to open the tile, there was a java update required and I ran that - not sure if thats connected to it.

You may want to try Stardock Software's Metro Mix. It will allow you to run Metro Apps from the desktop. The problem with Metro. Is that it uses a mix of Javascript & html5. A lot of apps in the Microsoft App store are poorly written. So in turn, you have issues.

Dear Support,

I have an in-house web application that accesses Windows network locations, using something like this:

<a href: file://<file-location>>Click here</a>

The internal website is added to Trusted Sites, with security settings to allow the application to open folders/files within our network.

In Internet Explorer, on Windows 7, this works fine.
On Windows 10, although this still works fine in Internet Explorer (without any messages), Edge prompts the user to confirm the irritating Did you mean to switch apps? message.
Can this be removed/overwritten/anything?!

Hello,

In the past 2 weeks my laptop has suddenly become very frustrating to use.   It is usable for a seemingly random amount of time, and then invariably some combination of the following will happen:
 
Cannot switch to or launch new apps from the start menu and taskbar (mouse just won't click)
Cannot alt/tab to switch to a new app
Mouse cursor moves but cannot click anything in current app (or)
Cannot move mouse cursor but click seems to register (this one happened while I was typing this forum post)
Scrolling does not work
Cannot right click
Mouse moves but moves very slowly and movement is very delayed
 
Closing the laptop and waiting for it to go to sleep mode and then opening it back up seems to magically fix the problem temporarily, but then inevitably it comes back.  Sometimes within seconds, sometimes minutes, sometimes 30 minutes.
 
There were no new program installs correlating to when this problem happened - but of course several programs update themselves all the time.
 
I can't find a pattern,  Not sure if this is a software or hardware issue so wanted to check here first before shipping the laptop off which is hard to do because I use it all the time for work.
 
Any questions? Let me know.
 
Thanks,

I've had a similar experience about a week ago, but I don't know exactly when it occurred because when I unlocked my phone, one of my tiles was grayed out and found at the time the only way to fix it was to uninstall and reinstall. I'm hesitant to do that with this current app as its a game with no cloud-save feature. I'm not on any preview builds (just the current production build) on a Lumia 950 XL.

I use the classic desktop in Win 8.1, but occasionally find myself in the tiled screen or Settings. When doing that during the last several days, I'm getting a "Switch between apps" box pop up on the edge of the desktop and can't get rid of it short of a reboot. Clicking on the arrow causes it to go back to the left and return to the original place. I posted on the MS Answers forum, but the "support engineer" said it's part of Win 8.1, there to be helpful and the arrow goes away when clicked on; i.e., she blew me off (that sort of help is all too common on MS Answers). Is there a way to get rid of it? Thanks,

Hi there.

Although I don't use the metro screen very often I sometimes use the Apps screen in W8.1 -- the Languages of some of the APPS tiles don't change after you've switched a language say back to English -- having changed all the settings back to display say in English again.

For example switching back from ISL to ENG you can see a load of the tiles haven't changed back to ENG.

I have a wireless router connected to my modem, and ALL PC's connect to that for internet.

I also have a gigabit switch I use to transfer data in between several of the machines. I do it quite often and I don't want it eating up the wifi bandwidth.
I have done it before, but it has been a long time and I cannot remember how I forced internet traffic over the wifi and local traffic through the switch
Is the only way to do it to specifically tell Windows to use the IP address of the LAN connection? I know it will work that way, forcing local traffic directly to that IP, but I seem to remember there being an easier way to do this.

Hi everyone, I searched through the forums but couldn't really find what I was looking for.

Currently we have a DHCP server set up to a switch, that has a special line connecting to a switch in our shop which is just across our back lot, giving network access to the few computers over there. They recently put in a new machine that needs network access, but they have already accidentally cut two ethernet cords. I'm looking to provide a wireless solution for the machine, but I don't want to have to spend a few thousand dollars on a large wireless switch.

Can I plug a wireless router into the switch in our shop, and essentially turn it into a wireless bridge, or is there another, simpler way to do this?

If this has already been answered, sorry for missing it!

Thanks!

Hi,

As the post title suggests, I am having trouble with the modern apps and connectivity. It feels like half my computer will connect to the internet, and the other half won't. Desktop apps like Chrome, Steam, Outlook, iTunes etc. all connect to the internet fine, but any of the Windows apps like Xbox, Store and (most frustratingly) Settings will not connect.

In my network and sharing centre in the control panel it says 'You are not connected to any networks' - but in the system tray, and in the settings app it shows me as connected to my home wi-fi. I am on a desktop, and using a USB wireless adapter. I don't think the adapter is the problem as I have tried it on another desktop in our house on Windows 10 and it worked fine. Curiously also, when I click 'Adapter settings' in the control panel, it shows the wifi connection.

I've tried updating the drivers for the wireless adapter, both through the Windows update and adapter website but to no avail (and as I mentioned, it seems the adapter works fine elsewhere). I've updated manually to the latest Windows 10 Pro build, i've done a DNS flush, I've tried disabling firewalls and anti-virus, I've tried disabling startup apps, I've done a clean install of Windows 10 and still am unable to fix the issue.

If anyone has any ideas that might help that would be great. I'm happy to provide any more information if people need it.

Thanks very much.

actually resolved the issue....I turned on windows update and did a massive update, the start menu looks a little different, maybe a different font, pinned items can only be mace smaller or bigger, used to be an option for long ( didnt use this anyway ) but new apps now showing and pin to start menu works.....so MS fixed it, there is some advantage to updating, have backed up with true image and turned off updating, will back up again before updating next time......the update didnt like GPU-Z and temoved it plus a few other apps and turned defender back on i think.......shutup-10 sorted all this out.....

I was given a Windows 8.1 tablet that once had a detachable keyboard which the guy lost. he reset the whole computer and after I got my information on it instead. After the reset, Windows was no longer activated and I had to reactivate it. which neither of us knows why, it was activated before we did a data factory reset. after I created my user, I installed a bunch of exes. now I go to try to see if I could test out the Windows Store to search for apps. but I search "Windows Store" or "app store" and several other things that may bring it up, but it always says, "no apps match your search" like if the Windows store is missing or somehow magically removed with the reset process. How do I get it back?

Hi,

I've been struggling with this problem for a few days now. The problem is that I do NOT have internet access for firefox/chrome/dropbox/etc but i DO have internet access for IE and certain OS apps (like Network Troubleshooter). I've read and tried most of the typical solutions with no avail.

What I've Tried:
Safemode with Networking - same situation, I can use IE but not Firefox/Chrome/etc
Reseting Winsock (netsh winsock reset, etc) - didn't work, possibly just made matters worse?
Flushing DNS (ipconfig /flushdns, etc)
I do NOT have a special proxy, and neither firefox, nor chrome, nor IE are trying to use one
I have added exceptions in Windows Firewall, then just straight up disabled the firewall
I have Avira antivirus, but it does not contain any firewall features and no place that I can see to add any such exception
LSP-Fix.exe (I tried to fix the LSP registery, it found 1 problem from leftover Bonjour dll, and I've repaired it but its changed nothing)
I ran quick-scan on malwarebytes - found nothing
I ran checkdisk and found no errors
I have no system restore point
Also, with firefox, I hve tried it in safe-mode and created a new profile, but that hasn't changed anything. When I try to make a connection with firebug open, it says the request was "aborted"

Because native Microsoft software (IE, OS software) has no problem connecting to the internet, I'm just trying to figure out what bridge was burned between firefox/ch... Read more

A:Solved: Internet works for IE and OS apps, NOT for firefox or 3rd party apps

Ok, so literally nothing was working - I did a "Repair Install" using my windows 7 cd. It took 2 hours, but when it finished up all of my networking was working So, for those of you who are having similar issues, as a last resort I'd give that a shot. Definitely read a few articles about what is required to successfully perform a Repair Install, as you don't want anything going wrong during that process.

I thought that I had this all figured out, but my dad just asked me a question about my setup, and I can't answer it.

The setup is like this:
[ip-phones + computers]-->[small switch]-->[managed L2 switch]-->[router]-->[modem]

I have several ip-phones and computers grouped into blocks of 8. Each set of 8 is a medley of phones/computers connected to a small switch http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...nksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=3681322279B34

Each of these switches, in turn, will be connected to a managed L2 switch http://www1.ca.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/pwcnt_3448p?c=ca&cs=calca1&l=en&s=biz that will create 2 VLANS: One VLAN will contain all of the phones, and the other will contain all of the computers. In turn, each VLAN will have its own router and DSL modem, thereby separating the network traffic.

I know that I can use this L2 switch to make the VLANS based on the MAC addresses of the devices. However, the smaller switches do not support 802.1q [VLANs]. Will it be a problem that the smaller switches do not support VLANs? Essentially, will this setup work to split up network traffic?

Thanks once again,
-Roger
 

A:Computer, switch, switch, router, modem

I have the same DELL switch for my phones. You PoE will not carry across the linksys switches, so that is the first problem.
Next are the computers attached to the phones? Or does each device get its own drop?

And whats this about 2 routers and modems? Thats a bit over kill!! QoS would do the trick.

I would run all the devices off the Dell and attach the computers to the Phones (most IP Phones have a passthrough port) Configure the Dell with trunk ports with the Computer VLAN passing untagged traffic making it the native VLAN. While having the phones on a Tagged VLAN(If you phones conig allows you to set the VLAN in its config great! If not you can bind the MAC to the VLAN). The you create a QoS policy giving the VoIP traffic priority!

I never tried sysprepping 10 but i have faced similar issues with 8.1. Turned out that you need to save the default app associations to an XML file using DISM (before Generalizing the image ) and later import it.

I have used "Setupcomplete.cmd" to auto import the app associations during the last face of install.

See the screenshot below for selection you have to make for not to convert your local account to a Microsoft Account:

Screenshot from tutorial Skype App - Use with Local Account in Windows 8.

You of course need an email address (Microsoft Account) but it will only be used for the app in question (Windows Store is also just an app), so in the next dialog either give an existing Microsoft Account credentials or select Sign up for a Microsoft account to create a new one to be used with Store app:

Your Windows sign in account will remain local, it will not be converted to a Microsoft Account.

OK, i'd like to make it clear that i'm using the so-called "real" Administrator account that is hidden but can be activated, not a regular account with admin privelidges. At first i was trying to figure out if Metro apps can be used by this account, and it appeared that they cant, but managed to find a trick to enable it. i did it by making sure UAC is on, making sure that FilterAdministratorToken is set to a value of 1 in the Registry, and by enabling "User Account Control: Admin approval mode for the built-in Administrator account" (secpol.msc [Local Security Policy]> Local Policies> Security Options).

So i did a bit more research and toying around, only to discover that although i might have found a workaround for running most Metro apps in general, i discovered that syncing, d/l'ing of apps from the Windows Store, etc is not possible unless you're using a Microsoft account.Please note that any other account with admin privelidges can use the apps without a hitch, as well as any Standard account. So it clearly is not a limitation of just having an admin account, alone.

Also, the built-in Admin is the only kind of account that cant be converted from a local account to a MS Account, all other accounts with admin privelidges can do so. If you look in the Control Panel and try to make changes to the account, you will find that the option isnt available, whereas with other accounts it is. This brings about the issue of not being able to sync or d/l... Read more

A:Use Metro Apps As Admin AND Be Able To Sync, d/l Store apps, etc???

Hello Stephen, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Setting that security policy below to be enabled will basically just turn the built-in elevated "Administrator" account into an unelevated administator account that requires UAC approval to open or run anything that requires elevated rights to do so.

This would be why you are able to open the Store afterwards, but you would still need to sign into the Store with any Microsoft account to be able to install any "Metro" Store apps.
Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

You still will not be able to switch the built-in "Administrator" to be a Microsoft account. It can only remain as a local account.

Hello all,

I am new here, although I did come here quite a few times and many times found the solution :-)

My problem is (I am on 1511) that some icons of removed (by powershell) apps reapeared, and there seem to be no way to get rid of them. Nothing I have found had worked (like going to start menu folder and deleting the shorcuts).

Namely it's MicrosoftWindowsAlarms, MicrosoftZuneMusic, MicrosoftWindowsPhotos, and in Apps the name looks like this: @{Microsoft.WindowsAlarms_10.1607.1991.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwems-resource--Microsoft.WindowsAlarms-Resources-AppName-Text}

Moreover, few days ago some "new" apps have materialized - that was a shock........no update, nothing, out of blue I had about 10 unwanted apps in my all apps...............crazy.

Any thoughts?

P.S. Normally I deffer updates by turning the service off and/or metered connection. Now I have left it on by mistake...........still should not install against my will some unwanted apps..........and as I said, no update.....

A:Icons of uninstalled apps showing in All apps

Those left-over icons may be a result of deleting programs instead of using Control Panel, Programs and Features to uninstall the programs. When a program is installed the install routine puts the program files in either C:\Program Files [32-bit] or C:\Program Files for 64-bit or C:\Program Files (x86) for 32-bit depending upon which version of the OS is in use. It will also create the icons, write support files to C:\Windows or other Folders and create Registry entries so Windows knows how to run the program. The uninstall routine is supposed to get rid of everything associated, don't know if PowerShell can do it as cleanly.

We are moving to a new office location. The guys who will be setting our network is proposing the following equipment:

3. 6u data cabinet
4. 1u cable management

The new office will be a 2-floor building with around 40 computers. I asked some of my friends who are more expert on network setup and told me typical switch (Linksys, Cisco) will do if we need to save some money.

What do you think? Thanks a lot!

Well, first off, I'd be specifying a gigabit switch for expandability, I can't see investing in a 10/100 switch in 2010! If you don't need a managed switch, or need to save money initially, and unmanaged switch will probably be significantly cheaper.

In point of fact, if you want to go really cheap, you can get away for less than $100!

I understand that a hub is more like a party line, where all devices hear and read data before sending it to next port, and a switch is advanced hub. But, what is a router. I know what a wireless router is, but they say a router is more advanced than a switch. Can you buy a non-wireless router?

Also, can you connect 2 switches together? So, Modem-----to Switch----to Switch----Computer

And both switches have other devices connected?

A:Hub vs Switch vs Router/ 2 Switch Story

you CAN buy a non-wireless router--but--the two I found on Amazon were only 10/100 (most modern systems use gigabit ethernet 10/100/1000) but wired are generally cheaper than a wireless router(the Cisco below is NOT cheap)--however--it's not necessary to use the wireless part of the wireless router as most have at least 4 ports (wired).

Yes you can connect switches together but they won't allow for multiple computers to connect to the Internet (at least not easily nor in a way that makes sense).

What devices are you trying to connect together?

wired routers:

Really dumb question....how the heck do I add a tile to the Metro GUI. I can move them around and remove them, but I can't for the life of me figure out to add a new one.

A:Adding a tile...?

I found when you install a new program a tile is created, you can then move it to where you want it.
Also when using IE in the Metro you can pin a site as a tile, just right click and choose the pushpin icon to create a tile to pin to the Metro screen.

In the Tutorial section, there is one as "How to Minimize the Windoes Exlporer "Ribbon"". Right after I installed W8 two days ago, I also downloaded "Windows 8 BluePoison" and by using this, I "unlock hidden features". From then on I no longer see the "Tiles". Windows Explorer is just like that of W7 and it has not "Ribbon".

I am just curious to know how I can get that Tiles back and see "Ribbon" on Windows Explorer.

A:Tile and Ribbon ???

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and
modify the RPEnabled key to a “1” which will set it back to default.

I need a seamless tile made up. I tried to make one but it doesn't seem to like me much. Not my fortay i guess...

I need a faded blue to white. I do not want blue anywhere but on the right column. When I do it it does not come out seamless.

The graphic is what I would like. I tried to use what I posted to make it seamless but it defiantly came out funky.
Any one board and would like to make one for me?

would some one be willing to make this graphic into a seamless tile for me. I keep getting the "to close to edge error" I change it but can't accomplish what I need. Or explain to me what it is I need to do so I can make seamless tiles myself. I tried to follow various tutors but my brain is not functioning....

I've been putting URL shortcuts into my Apps Menu but it doesn't always give me a good name for it. For example, I go to Entertainment.com and created a shortcut by clicking on the IE11 gear, then clicking Add Site to Apps; but when it puts it on my Apps Menu, it gives it a title of "Member Logon for Entertainment Coupons", when all I wanted was "Entertainment Coupons".

Hi,
I do like Win7 so far (compared to XP), but one of the things I'm missing is the "Tile vertically" function (you know, where you can select a few programs in the taskbar and make them automatically fit on the screen together).

Is it really no there or am I just overlooking it?

Thanks in advance!

A:Tile vertically

aero snap sort of replicates this feature, where you drag a window to the edge of the screen.

or try playing with windows key + arrow keys.

i know it's not quite the same, maybe other forum users will improve on this idea...

Just a quickie for you expert people out there

I have my tiles and have unpinned the ones i don't want. Now, i am left with Mail and Calendar.
Trouble is i don't have (don't tell anyone) a MS email and don't want one, i am on Gmail - is there any way i can edit the properties of that tile so that when i click the Email icon it will open my Email client as it does on the main desktop?
I've had a look at the right click options of the icon on my main desktop but it doesn't say "pin to start" - which is what i want it to do....

Any ideas??

Thanks so much in advance.

I just installed windows 8 Pro on desktop, now in metro start screen, I click on the music tile go through to find some music I want to listen to and when it plays it opens this Xbox music thing. Why and is this normal?

A:music tile

LoL.. sheeples.. Xbox+metro= multiple platform support = phones that become the laptops (docking) = app store = revenue channel.
They thought this through while they were high on cocaine and champagne like every good corporate meeting.
It will take a awhile for competitors to build placement tiles since they have to learn the new interface and recompile their code.
MS's main competitor is Apple. Ms = Xbox+hyper visor, Pc = Steam, Apple = Riaa + Mpaa.

I remember when the FBI was busting down doors because people where using betamax to copy broadcasted tv shows, beating the children and shooting their dogs. Criminals = whatever stops the money flowing to the appointed authorities.

I wonder if they sell folk music on Xbox music center, hahahahaha... I'm like the 1 guy that searched for it.
I guess the old timers still prefer a smokey bar with live music.

-------------
Try installing Winamp for a push and forget solution, not that I like lamas or anything, but they are fun to pet.
You are probably wanting streaming music, and there has never been a convergence of streaming music stations.
Except shoutcast and a few other .com's. Someone will have to converge all their API's into one app without pissing someone off, which is VERY VERY VERY hard to do.

Hey guys!
I have a weird problem with my Chrome and I hope someone can help me:
When I first installed Windows 8 there was the IE tile, with lighter blue background and white icon. Then I installed Chrome, at first start I used it as my default browser, mostly in W8 mode, sometimes in desktop mode, but it always had the grey background tile with the Chrome icon. I wanted to make new tiles for my non-metro apps with OblyTile, and because I use IE sometimes I made one for that too, but after that my Chrome tile became a standard non-metro style tile with blue bg and smaller icon, using it first opens the desktop then the metro-mode chrome, and the original IE tile (I kept it from the beginning) reversed to the original, blue bg, white icon style, but Chrome is the default browser.

Can you help me to reverse Chrome to the gray bg tile and make it open the metro-mode without first opening the desktop?

Thanks in advance!

Hello fellow humans!!

Alright, so I was wondering what my Main Panel on my Star Screen is missing but I couldn't figure it out.. Until I wanted to check the time. Usually, I would just do a double finger gesture on my Microsoft Touch Mouse and boom, time shows. Or just check the time when I'm already on desktop mode. This time however, my batteries ran out and I was on my Start Screen wondering what the time was. Oh, yea, I was super lazy too. So I wondered why didn't Microsoft make a time/clock app yet? It would make perfect sense to have one. Nonetheless, I know we can't always have everything.. So I'm asking you guys, are you using any apps for this exact reason? Have you got any suggestions? All I want is a tile with the time shown all over it.. No need for other information, like date or anything, just the time.. I'm asking you because, well, I don't know, I just like posting here instead of reading reviews for every single app in the store.

Thanks in advance!!

I opened two internet explorer windows by clicking the shortcuts on the quick launch bar.

I tiled these windows vertically ( windows xp home edition ).

I right clicked on the task bar and clicked on the undo tile option.

This appeared to work - however clicking the internet shortcuts on the quick launch bar on another day produced a window of tile size.

Any attempt to change the the window size permanently fails.

Re- opening the windows from the quick launch bar results in the the original tile size.

Any suggestions please ?

I'm assuming you are using the new W10 mail app. If you click on its settings (cog icon at bottom left) you can access Manage accounts and select the outlook mail account to reach the box as shown below:


Then you can select Change mailbox sync settings and scroll down to turn on the Email sync.
