A new tutorial titled Clear tile notifications on logout in Windows 8 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.
A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:
The Windows 8 Start Screen contains tiles that allow you to launch an associated app. These tiles also have the ability to display notifications containing new information from that particular tiles application. For example, the Weather app will show updated weather information, the Stocks app will show recent stock quotes, and the News app will show the latest news stories. This tutorial will explain how you can clear these tiles when you logoff Windows 8.
We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
