    I (and I know some other people) are having the problem of our Metro apps not opening 0.0 just the background shows for some reason :/ Anyways, I was wondering if someone out there was smart and nice enough to package up all of their Metro apps into a zipped folder and post them here ? I fear that I may have corrupted some of my apps, and that's why they won't open, so if anyone has a copy of the uncorrupted versions, possibly they could paste them here? It would help a LOT of us if we could "reinstall" the Metro apps...

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: No, it's not a screen resolution or you've-not-updated problem :p the app kinda half starts then hangs...it's weird...anyways, I've gotta hunch that a non-corrupted reinstallation of the apps might work :)

    Why don't you uninstall all the apps and re-download from the store?

    Refresh your PC then. Go to PC Settings > General.

    L2R, if you look close this thread was created nearly a year ago, and some random dude necro'd it.. so it's pointless to keep going.

    No, that won't help, unfortunately! I tried it myself, and I ended up in re-installing Windows!:(
