Cannot turn on live tile for weather app

Q: Cannot turn on live tile for weather app

I can't seem to turn on live tile for my weather app. When I right click on it, there is no option at the bottom of the screen to turn it on.

Compared to the photos app, it is currently running live tile by default, and when I right click on it, I can toggle live tile on and off.

Is there something special I need to do with the weather app to activate live tile?

A: Cannot turn on live tile for weather app

Hello Pauleduc,

Double check to make sure that the Windows Time service is enabled, and that your system time is set accurately and synced.

You could also do this by opening an elevated command prompt, then typing the commands below and press Enter after each one.
net start w32time

w32tm /resync

Afterwards, see if you have the "Turn live tile on/off" option.

I recently upgraded to 8.1 (actually, made a clean install), and everything seems to be working as designed. Except, on the Start Screen, although all the other apps show live tiles, the Weather app does not, showing only a plain blue background with the word "Weather" on it. The live tile feature is definitely turned on for this app.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a fix for it?

Hello. I am using Windows 10 Professional edition. Following some random Windows Update a few months ago, my default Windows 10 weather app (the one that can be pinned to the start menu) displays the temperature properly and updates regularly, however, if I click to open it, it opens blank....basically, the window is just the blue background with the little icon of the sun in the center.

This app used to work 100% before.

Lastly, I remember my calendar app not opening at all when Windows 10 was fresh. It would immediately close upon opening the calendar app. However, following some random Windows Update, the calendar app started working properly.

I "upgraded" to Windows 10 from 8.1, but I did a FULL install and chose to "save nothing" from 8.1, so it is about as legit as it can get to being a full installation and not an upgrade.

PS, it doesn't seem to matter if I enable to disable background data for the Weather app in privacy settings. I have tried it out both ways, and either way, on or off, the live tile for the weather app still updates, but opens blank and won't show me the large view when I click on it.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I don't use any other apps, I have not downloaded any other apps from the app store, and I have deleted some of the apps that came with Windows 10. I prefer to use my web browser for most things. I'm old school!

I've noticed that Skydrive live tile does not work after upgrading to 8.1. Anyone else notice this?

Prior to 8.1, Skydrive was live, that is it would display the contents of your folder, especially photos. Now, after 8.1, it doesn't work.

So is anyone else's skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

A:Skydrive live tile not working under 8.1?

Hello Drew,

In Windows 8.1, SkyDrive is fully integrated now.

You should have a separate SkyDrive app tile on your Start screen for the online SkyDrive, and a SkyDrive folder group in the navigation pane of File Explorer. This folder is located at: "C:\Users\(user-name)\SkyDrive".

I like the live tile on the native photo app despite not being able to control what pics show and it only scrolling through 5 at any given time. However do people find the live tile buggy? It will be happily working away but then I will notice the tile gets stuck on a single pic no longer scrolling. Switching live tile off and back on generally kicks it back into life again. It's the only live tile that seems prone to this behaviour as all others behave themselves. I've noticed this has happened through all builds of Windows 10 and numerous photo app updates. It's very random as to when it occurs too

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this request, but I am not able to get the Twitter live tile running on my Mom's new laptop. The laptop came with Windows 10 already installed as the main operating system.

When the Twitter live tile would not work, I initially tried turning the live tile off and then back on. When that did not work, I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling Twitter. The live tile is still not working. I don't remember if upon reinstalling if I was asked if the app should be allowed to run in the background.

I found this sub-forum with guidance on how to allow apps to run in the background. On my Mom's computer, when I go to Setting/Privacy/Background Apps the list of Apps that I can turn on and off does not include Twitter. I also have Windows 10 on my computer and my Twitter live tile is working. Twitter is on my list of Background Apps that can be modified and it is turned on.

If anyone knows how to add Twitter to the list of Background Apps, so that I can turn it on or off on my Mom's computer, please let me know what I need to do.

Thank you in advance.

I am really enjoying Windows 8 so far. It took some getting used to, and I still believe it is more ideally suited for touch-interface, but I still enjoy using it and updating my computer usage habits because of it.

That being said, I don't seem to understand the Mail app that comes on the start page. I have added my accounts, and can check them accordingly, and I really enjoy it. But when I get new mail, I get a popup in the upper-right hand corner of the screen about the new mail. My question is this:

Can I make the Mail Icon show my new mail, (in a live-tile fashion) much like when I get new messages the friends live-tile shows those messages. Is that possible? Even if it is just the title/subject, or author that would be a nice customization and benefit to me.

Thanks for reading, and sorry if this belongs in the customize section and not here.

Only a few days ago I realised that both my computers (windows 8.1) had live tiles enabled in the metro interface, and that they had been downloading things for them (various new pictures to be displayed on the tiles, and alos adverts for apps available in windows' store. I disabled the live tiles (there was only one, the windows store) on both machines as soon as I realised this. So they won't be wasting any more of my bandwidth downloading png pictures of apps I don't care about.
This however got me thinking: If the windows store shows adverts, and these adverts are shown (atleast in some sense) through the live tiles, then could these tiles end up distributing viruses? As far as I could tell the only things be downloaded (and wasting a small amount of my bandwidth) were png images, but part of me wonders if flash animations (with hidden exploits) or exe files could be downloaded and run like this? Has this ever happened yet? I have no particular cause to think it has happened to me but the fact that these tiles exist like this and do what they do makes me think it could happen some day? If it could then that would be a huge problem waiting to happen, viruses delivered through a running function on a computer that most people would never even think to look at.
Would it be possible? Has it ever happened yet? The same concern would probably affect windows 10 as well, because it too has live tiles.
Thanks

A:Could an infection be delivered via a live tile in windows 8/8.1 ?

Tile images are usually hosted by programs so in order to get malicious one would require you to install one of those. You can still create one of your own and for example poll data from
website. It usually involves downloading image and small config file. In this case the host is IE.
 
Technically it could be possible to send some malformed config which then uses some vulnerability within system itself in order to inject malicious code. Still would still require you or some other program in your computer to create new live tile. I don't think it would be very useable case since you already have an access to the system at that point.
 
I don't think its going to be any less secure then just surfing over web. Microsoft controls Windows Store so there shouldn't be any problem with that matter of malicious data being send over their channels.
If there were some major security issues with this I think they would have been noticed at this point. But this is majorly just speculation on my part.
 
@EDIT
 
So as Didier Stevens pointed out, live tile hosts(Apps) are run inside sandbox environment. Most malicious active would require to escape that sandbox or use
some other exploit. As with the regular programs, user discretion is still advised when installing apps.

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

A:Mail Live Tile not Working after Windows 8.1 Upgrade

OK. Not sure what is going on. My Yahoo Mail account would not allow me to set it up as get messages as they occur. I had to set it up as check every 15 minutes. My Gmail account did not have this issue. But still not getting the live tile to work. I saw 15 apps needed updating now, so did that (mail was one of them), but still no live tile working for mail.

I finally decided to install Yahoo Mail because I needed the live tile for that account. But that live tile was not working either. I had people send me emails, and nothing. They sent to Yahoo and to Hotmail. Then after about 4 hours, all of a sudden I started getting the live tiles updating. I have no idea why.

I removed Yahoo Mail, and still the live tile worked for mail. I waited until the next morning to verify it was all good and it is still working.

So marking as solved. Not sure what solved it, but there you go.

Ok, maybe I?m missing something but accessing the pictures (live pictures tile) folder from the start menu shows my photo?s but not in the order I?d like them to be in. As such, to my horror I?ve found I can?t move them around (re-arrange them).

I can obviously re-arrange them if I access the ?My Pictures? folder through explorer, in fact they?re actually arranged differently than what is displayed accessing it through the Windows Start Screen.

Anyway is it possible to arrange them there because trying to manually move them around proves fruitless.

Also, how do you take a snip of the stat screen using the snip tool? God Win 8 can be annoying at times.

Thanks.

A:Question about My Pictures (live tile) on Start Menu?

There is a big fat tile named "Photos" - It does not seem to connect to the Library. Oh yes, it does, it takes a while to populate.

It would seem that the tiles in the app cannot be moved at all. I don't know about the snip tool, but someone here should know that.

I have had this issue for a while and was wondering if anyone knows of a way to restore these. The Cortana Live Tile and Cortana entry in the All Apps section are both missing so I cannot re-add the Live Tile back. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Hi, try Windows key + S. Does Cortana appear and is it functional?

If not, check Location is on in the Action centre and the geolocation service is running.

To restore the tile and shortcut you may need to do an in-place upgrade repair install (see the Tutorial section where you can find instructions).

- do not try Powershell commands- the typical ones to repair apps haven't worked since build 10540.

Hi, I have lumia 640, latest win 10, done few hard resets, after latest outlook calendar update few days ago I hoped this problem will be fixed, but it still persists, i.e., live tile does not update date. Any idea what to do? Can not understand this since MyCalendar works fine!
The other problem I have is, that the menu for setting a call devert (settings, extras, network, ...) opens and immediately (after 2, 3 sec) closes by itself, so you don't have time to set a divert. I think this was not an issue with a previous versions. Any tip would be welcome, since I'm slowly losing patience with being a devoted win phone fan. Thx, Mark

I bought my online upgrade and let it proceed from W7 and later downloaded and burned the .iso, so what I have is a true upgrade from W7 and not a clean install. I really have no big issues, just anoyances really, with my live tiles.

My Live tiles don't update them selves unless I open them first. What I mean is for example; the wikipedia tile gives me sugested articles in the live tile, however if I don't open it, it keeps the same info from the day prior. Same goes for the dictionary tile, it should give me the word of the day, unless I open it the tile never refreshes and stays on the previous word. I won't even get into the Mail app and tile that don't notify or update unless I open it.

My question is would any of you try a clean install to fix this? I really hate to reinstall all my programs, but really what's the point in a live tile if it isn't actually live

I guess I am just wondering what some of you gurus would try to fix this little quirk or if anyone else has this problem?

Thanks

Geeve

A:thoughts from gurus on a fresh reinstall live tile issues.

I've seen this happen when I hibernate my puter many times during the day and resume from hibernate. Sometimes it isn't connected to the network, and when I do, the tiles will usually refresh. Sometimes not, but when I restart they will refresh.

Don't know if this helps, but might help.

I am booting a Linux fatdog64 live cd from the optical drive without any problems.
However, the Linux desktop icons show my NTFS partitions (system reserved and c: system partition) and will mount them without difficulties.
I am looking for ways to turn off the hard disk without physically disconnecting from the mobo.
Is there a way to accomplish this via BIOS setup? Disable chipset SATA controller ?
Setting the hard disk in CMOS to NONE will not show the disk, but Linux still picks up the the partitions. Any ideas?

A:booting from live cd, turn off system hdd

If the disk drive is on SATA , you'll kill it off as well if you disable SATA controllers. If I'm not mistaken though, fatdog is Linux Puppy at the core, so you can install it on a usb thumbdrive after you booted the livecd (it has its own installer). Afterwards you can simply disable SATA and use the USB pendrive to boot.

I did make a switch with molex connectors, that would cut the power to the device if I wanted to. It's pretty easy to to if you know how to solder and have a dual (male-female) molex power connector. If you have only sata power connectors coming from the PSU... it's more complex.

Hi,

I upgraded to the latest Windows Live Messenger earlier today and while the program itself works very well, it has caused an annoyance for me. The problem is that it has enabled Cleartype (thick text that supposedly makes the letters more legible, but gives me headaches) in parts of the OS, including the title bars, inside of applications and the clock. I don't like this and I can't seem to get rid of it. I tried enabling and disabling it in the display properties but that didn't help at all.

Can someone please tell me how to disable it?

Can anyone pleeeeeeease help me to sort out a niggling little problem before it drives me completely insane!

A while back I downloaded the Netscape Browser in order to use it to check the correct operation of some webdesign work I had created.

The Netscape browser is not set as my default browser and I only open it when I need to.
However, another program called WeatherBug also installed itself along with the browser and this weather program initiates every time I start my PC. Although the program is interesting, it is not intended for U.K use, and so, I decided to uninstall it from my PC.
Having used the Windows XP uninstall utility, the actual program appears to have been completely eliminated. But now, each time I start my PC I receive a windows message which is prefixed with an exclamation mark saying that I must connect to the internet and register WeatherBug before I can use it. The PC then automatically connects to the net and opens a message saying this page cannot be found.
All I would like is to remove this annoying problem each time I start my PC. I have checked in the start-up folder and can find no mention of the program remaining. I have also run a registry fixer utility to remove un-necessary registry entries and fix any problems, but the message still appears at startup on my desktop screen.
Does anyone know where the remains of this program may be lurking in my PC?

Hope you can assist.

Thanks

? ? ? ? Several years ago I was working and then moderating the AOL AntiVirus chats. We had so many people experience problems with Weather Bug installed, that we suggested avoiding it. We were not alone. several other help sites also suggested avoiding it. I suggested that there were several local television stations in most areas that offered alternatives. I am a practice what you preach guy so I installed and used one out of a Providence TV station. After some time. I don't recall just how long ago it hybridized or morphed into a local channel/weatherbug web site ? ? ? ? I now have Weather Bug but it does not seem to be causing the kind of problems that it did in the past. It could be that Weather Bug has cleaned up their act, or the protection programs have evolved to a point where thet are protecting us against them.

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.
