Hi all,

I just noticed today that [many] Apps which appear as tiles on the Start screen no longer work.


Tested: Travel, Calender, Finance, Sport, Weather and News don't work)

Photos and Store do work.


When I click the tile for an App (which is not a desktop program) it flashes on screen then immediately disappears. The app is running, it is listed on the left side when I swipe my pointer on the extreme left of the desktop but it will not display over the desktop when clicked.


Anyone else noticing this?


I could restore the system I suppose but I don't know on which date this problem started and in truth I hardly use any Apps . I only noticed because I wanted to check my weather App.


Maybe an update from Microsoft will fix this problem in due course.


cheers, *Haircut
