Preferred Solution: Modern apps not connecting to internet, desktop apps work fine.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,

I offten play game online, and my network is not fast. So when I playing game, it's usually "lag". I think it is because the modern apps (mail, people, weather...) and other background services auto connect to internet. I can stop or turn off these background services, but I don't know how to turn off or prevent modern apps do that to improve the network speed. So I really need your help.

Thanks and sorry for my english!

Hi, none of my Windows Ten Apps will open, including the windows ten store, xbox, groove music, mail, photos, minecraft windows ten edition, calendar, you get the idea. I'm running version 1511, (OS Build 10586.318). I can't remember when it started, but it's a pain. I've looked up the issue online, but nothing seems to be the EXACT same problem with me. My start button works fine, and the apps don't give me an error message or anything. If someone could fix this I would be SO grateful!

Hello,

I am a developer and also Windows user and curious about some things. From reading this forum, I think the nice knowledgeable people here will be able to help!

Are Modern UI apps truly sandboxed? If so, how will system apps like A/V, Firewalls, and others work from a sandboxed environment?

Can system apps from the Old Desktop scan and check things related to Modern UI apps?

I am trying to find out how much Modern UI apps and Desktop apps can communicate and coexist. Also, when the old desktop apps go away (if it goes away), how Modern UI apps will deal with System Applications.

Modern UI apps seem like WPF apps to me with an XML style interface and code behind with a new framework for the tiles. Is that correct?

Thanks!

Really weird problem here. For some reason, some app links won't launch from Objectdock or Rocketdock, yet others will. The only thing they have in common is that they're either Microsoft programs like Freecell or Snipping Tool, or programs that are used to modify Windows like Classic Shell Explorer and Start Menu Customizer.

At the same time, other MS programs like Media Player, and 3rd-party tweaking apps like Ultimate Windows Tweaker, work launch just fine with both docks.

This issue is only happening in the docks. The Start Menu and Explorer will load these programs normally. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Like I said, weird. Any ideas?

Thanks

A:Some apps won't work in Objectdock/Rocketdock, fine in Start Menu

Running Windows 8.1. Have admittedly modified it quite heavily but perhaps someone could point me to the root of what I have screwed up.

Pretty much, any apps which have the purple wheel splash screen do not load (presumably crash). Normal windows settings work fine. Windows applications and Metro apps works with no hitches (I have none downloaded but default Music, Games all start with no issues).

Much appreciate any suggestions.

Modified what? Using what? 3rd party software? Is your copy of windows a registered version? Can you recall when it stopped working properly? Have you tried restoring to an earlier state?

I am reading everywhere that Windows 8 is not being very successful by now, but the big thing with Windows 8 is Modern UI and the whole new ecosystem of apps, market and interface.

And I still don't know how much are Windows 8 users using all of it.

For instance, I never use Modern UI at all. I never check the app market, never install apps, never use them...

What about you?

*NOTE: NEVER also means RARELY, too little use to being called occasional use.

I wanted to change the survey but the system won't allow it. So please take it for NEVER or RARELY.

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 don't understand why Microsoft requires UAC to be enabled for me to use any Modern Apps or the App Store. I always turn off UAC and one of the programs I use, Object Rexx from IBM does not run correctly with UAC enabled. I find the UAC prompts intrusive and extremely annoying and as far as I'm concerned UAC is a total waste as after a very short period of time it becomes automatic to click OK without even reading the UAC notice.

Anyone know what the rational for this is? Is there a workaround for it? I'd like to play with some of the Apps but I'm not going to enable UAC to do it.

A:Why does UAC have to be enabled to use any Modern Apps

Hey Rich,

When UAC is disabled, the account basically runs elevated. Modern apps will not run in an elevated account by design for security purposes.

About all you can do is set your UAC settings to the bottom level.

When I first got Windows 8, I was like a kid in a candy store downloading way too many modern apps. Many of these early modern apps are no longer working. Another side effect is that newly installed modern apps no longer have tiles created on the modern desktop as if these is no more space available.

I want to clean up these obsolete apps en mass. I want them off my machine and off of my list of modern apps attached to my Microsoft-ID so they don't reappear.

I am willing to have ALL of my modern apps removed, and reset to only those that come preinstalled. I am more mature and believe I can use more discretion on modern apps I download moving forward.

A:How can I cleanup my modern apps to only preinstalled?

You could try this, has worked for me. I am not sure if this script will remove third party apps, I have used it to remove some default apps. Anyway, worth a try.

Download the uninstall script from Microsoft TechNet: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.co...-Apps-a00ef4a4Follow the instructions on that page to remove the apps you want to get rid of

Is there a awy to make it so Windows 8.1 does not show any of the Modern Apps in the taskbar?

For instance, I like to keep NotePad8, Weather and some others running, but I don't want them taking up Taskbar realestate since (as far as I'm aware at least), those Modern apps will remain open until I close them for good by moving to the upper left part of the screen.

So, if anyone knows of any methods I could try to do this, I would be all ears! I suspect there's probably something I could do in the registry, and if there is, maybe someone could attach a .reg file for me.

I'm also attaching a screencap of what I'm talking about.

Thanks a lot, everyone!

I was so irritated by Windows 8, that I completely removed all of the apps, and disabled 'Metro' as much as possible.

I now need Microsoft Store to install the Windows 8.1 update.

How can I do this without a complete reinstall?

I find when there is a pending update to the modern windows apps they won't work correctly. Then navigate to store and generally can see an update waiting. It then updates and seems to work fine. I've had it before where photos or calculator flash on screen and then disappear. I then see the updates are lurking. So basically a looming update seems to break functionality until you actually go and update.

Hi
I just updated my laptop the other day and I found a black bar appearing on the top of Apps. It's an unwelcome animation. I want to get rid of it after App has finished starting up because it doesn't do anything.
Not only does it not do anything, every time I try to change tabs in a web browser (chrome) I keep hitting the bar bar and it ruins my browsing experience.
I can understand the black bar appearing when an App starts but looks stupid when it doesn't do anything new and interferes with the user experience.
Is there some way to disable it for the likes of apps that use tab browsing as I like to use a mouse to go to the top of the screen to select another tab and not worry about a pop up advertisement type black bar.

A:Black title bar in Modern apps when using a mouse ?

Hi there. I'm not in agreement with this bar addition either. I don't use Chrome, but this problem has been reported by other users as well. I have seen no resolution to the problem yet. It's either going to take a Registry hack, MS to give option to turn off, or Google to fix Chrome.

I set up my 8.1 installation, played with all the apps, got used to how M$ wants the future to be...and this morning when I turned my PC on, it said it was installing some updates. No biggie.

Now today I am having a bad time with some of the Apps. Skype for example(though this seems to be a known issue?) loads for about 4 seconds then CTS(CrashToStart). Photos will let me look around for about ten seconds, then CTS. Reading List, CTS soon as it looks loaded.

I have tried re-installing the apps, to no avail. Hopefully someone here can help, or a hotfix will be released, because a refresh would be a sucky option just for it to break again.

Hello all,
We have some workstations running Windows 8 that we would like to get upgraded to 8.1. We originally deployed Windows 8 using a customized image with all the Modern UI apps removed, e.g. Mail, Calendar, People, Maps, News, Food & Drink, Health &
Fitness, Reading List, etc. I've run the upgrade on a test machine using "Setup.exe /auto:upgrade" as documented at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/dn744271.aspx and it works; however, all the Modern UI apps are re-installed. 
Is there a way to perform this upgrade without all the apps installing, or, at the very least, not have the icons appear on the user's Start menu?

Hi everyone, I have a little problem with Modern Apps on Windows 10, they can't connect to the proxy server when I am using its url, ej "proxy.*.com" but they connect fine if I use the proxy IP.
The DNS Client is running and tried flushing the DNS Cache but it didn't solved the issue.
What could the problem be?

I'm more curious about this than anything because I just wasted and hour to figure it out. If I disable the DNS Client Service on Windows 8.1 it seems to break a lot of Modern apps. If it's set to start manually, some Modern apps trigger it to start.

Do Modern apps make queries directly to the DNS Client Service or something weird?

A:What's the deal with Modern apps and DNS Client Service?

Yeah I came across this just now, and was diagnosing the firewall and know the exact cause.

So when dns client is enabled, all dns requests are routed via it, meaning applications do not need specific udp port 53 internet access.
If the dns client is disabled any internet application that wants to do a dns lookup will need outbound udp port 53 traffic allowed.

Now there is some undocumented behaviour going on.

There is hidden WSH Network hardened rules in the windows firewall, these rules are "always" enabled. Regardless of default outbound state in the windows firewall. (allow rules also wont allow the traffic)
So the default windows firewall configuration is to require allow rules for inbound traffic and allow all outbound traffic.
However there is hidden rules that block certain traffic Microsoft decided to block, and it seems wermgr.exe which is used by metro apps, cannot send out dns traffic, the hardened rules block it.

My gut guess is this is a bug that is yet to be fixed. Because the vast majority of people (well over 99%) will have dns client service enabled in its default state.

Interestingly the hidden rules still kick in if you disable the firewall in the advanced UI. The only way to stop the rules is to actually disable the firewall service which is obviously not recommended, meaning the sane choice is either to keep dns client enabled, dont use modern apps or use a 3rd party software firewall in place of the windows firewall.

1. The modern apps having the titlebar which allows us to press close in the corner messes with the Start Taskbar if you have it set to the top of the screen instead of the bottom. When you mouse up to the top with and try to drag the file down as normal to close it using the old mouse behaviour it now brings the Start Taskbar down on-top of it, as though the Start Taskbar is using 'auto-hide', which gets in the way and sticks around for a good while, stopping me from closing the modern app.

2. When I have a modern app pinned to the Taskbar, and open, it will not update it's status. Take Mail app for exampel. The Start Screen tile shows me that I have two emails, but the taskbar pin doesn't have a '2' on it. I've seen pictures online that it's supposed to do this.

Pretty straightforward. I'm trying to clean up my "All Programs" start menu and it's littered with modern apps that I can't re-arrange, hide, or categorize.
Anyone know of any tricks to make this work? I'm not looking to kill off the programs, just the icons in that menu.

This tutorial demonstrates how to close 'Modern' Apps completely using the 'drag to the bottom of the screen' method; also, drastically reducing the 'hang' time with this method.

A:Close 'Modern' Apps Quickly & Completely in Windows 8.1

Nice demo but, can I say that... to be accurate like that requires dexterity and a healthy wrist.
One cannot miss that mark or else it must be re applied ?
Don't pull it down completely or too slow or hesitate or let go of the button - oops...

One of my 4 trackball buttons is set to close a window - program or app. That's it, one button to close anything.
Not the X in the upper corner. I don't use the X in the upper corner.

On the other hand, I like app switching and suspension of apps. They are instant on.

In desktop mode of Windows 8 you can use the snipping tool (love that little guy) or Sent to One Note screen capture tool to grab a snapshot of any part of your computer screen. However, neither of these applications work in "Metro" mode. How can I snag a small screen capture in modern UI mode of Windows 8 on my PC? I know on my Surface I can take full screen captures using the Start Button+Volume Down key, but how about on a PC and how about something smaller than the entire screen?

A:How do you take a screen shot / capture of modern UI apps in Windows 8?

On a PC it is really easy to take a screen shot. Just press the "Prt Scr" button on your keyboard. Then open Paint (or any other image editing software) and press "Ctrl+V". The screen shot will get pasted into the app. And if you want something smaller than the entire screen then just select the portion you want and crop the image.

Hi I was given these instructions from another forum to show me how to remove unwanted apps from my computer. Problem seems to stem from the fact that I am unable to replicate a certain "caret" into the command, for example: "Get-AppXPackage -User <username> |  Remove-AppxPackage". I highlighted the caret in red that I mean. It says to open Powershell and at then "Type the following command to remove all Modern apps from the system account", but I tried this but because I cannot put in the " | " in the command it only opens another command beginning, for instance:
PS C:\Windows\system32>
Please help, how do I get this to work, there are tons of apps pre-installed on this windows 8 that I simply do not use, I do not have a disk, it came with windows 8 pre-installed.
thanks for any help with this

A:Internet and Apps only work in Safe Mode

Welcome to TSG:
If everything works in safe mode with networking but not normal mode,my guess would be an application running in normal not running in safe mode.
So,I would take a look at the list of apps running in both modes and investigate the ones not running in safe mode.
This will probably be a bit labor intensive,but given your description,it seems to be the best avenue to pursue at the moment.
Listing running tasks in safe and normal mode.

Open a command prompt in normal mode and type the following command.

tasklist >c:\nortasks.txt
Do it again in safe mode with networking and use this command.

tasklist >c:\saftasks.txt

This will give you two text files in the root of C: that list the tasks running in each mode. Compare the lists and see what unique processes are running in normal mode.

I finally found wifi to download a couple of apps that I had heard were good - Vinci and Matissa photo editing apps
I downloaded them (something like 15MB each) and then went home.
When I tried opening them, both apps say I need internet to download the filters and content. So what was all that 15MB for?
And how much data am I going to use up to download the filters? Am I going to keep downloading them every time?
I don't need backwardness like this from a simple app that has no need for internet. I've downloaded apps like fantasia, picsketch, pencil painter and others where no internet was ever needed for them to work
I don't know where this ill informed decision came from

I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise and for over a month now all my modern applications are not working (crash)

I have over time tried a couple of solutions but nothing solves my problem.

Steps I've already tried to solve the issue are as follows; Windows updates and restart,
System restore, 
Delete the Cache content, and run the wsreset.exe

I upgraded my Windows 7 laptop to Windows 8 and none of the apps work and they all show offline. When I open the desktop I can use the internet with no problem. In the network and sharing options it says that I am not connected to a network when clearly I am so I'm guessing it is possibly a network/IPv6 issue?

Any ideas?

Hello every one !

I am only able to access my ISP's homepage where I'd login. Other than that, I cannot open any  website . I've called my ISP guys and they've checked the connection. It seems there's something wrong with my machine. I am able to use apps like news

I have tried everything, and googled for hours without any useful result.
Does anyone have any suggestion?

A:Access internet from desktop but not from Metro Apps

From what I've read about this problem running the system file corruption scan in an elevated command prompt > sfc/scannow followed by a reboot which does the repair.

Then run the DISM scan to fix the component store corruption > Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth then reboot and run the sfc/scannow again to make sure everything is fixed.

This should take care of the store going online problem.

Try checking out your router setup it may be blocking those programs. You may need to login to the router and "enable" the programs as I notice they are P2P programs and quite often you have to permit their use. Try googling for "enabling p2p on my xxxx router" where xxxx is the make / model number

I've had issues with Facebook apps occasionally (Facebook, Messenger & Instagram) where no touch seems to be registered. I restarted my phone and the issues seem to disappear. It has to be something with the Facebook Conversion process imo.

I was wondering if there was *some* way to launch Modern apps with the "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center", or whether there's a Modern version of "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center" in the works.

Is there some sort of command or something that can be put into the "Open a program, webpage, or file" field?

If nothing else, is there a program that can be launched that can automatically launch a metro app?

Thanks.

A:Launching Modern apps with "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center"....

I was wondering if there was *some* way to launch Modern apps with the "Microsoft Mouse And Keyboard Center"



The only method that I have seen is using macros.  E.g. find the minimal, most reliable method of using the Start Screen to do whatever it is that you want to do via the keyboard, then express that sequence by a macro and assign it to an "unused"
function key.

My modern apps no longer will run in my windows 8.1 Pro laptop.
The two that I use are Microsoft Solitaire Collection and the Weather app.
I don't want to uninstall and reinstall them (also for the umteenth time), because I DO NOT want to lose my Solitaire collection stats, 500 wins out of 500 plays in Freecell.
What to do!
I know it's just a stupid game, but, still, there should be some way to fix this without having to uninstall and reinstall, again!
Or, if there is a way to preserve the stats in an uninstall/reinstall scenario, that would work for me.  In the past, the stats get reset in an uninstall/reinstall of Microsoft Solitaire Collection.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

A:My "Modern" Apps have stopped running for the umteenth time in my Windows 8.1 Pro

The answer turns out to be quite simple.  When I added the "Authenticated Users" user in the security tab for my Users folder, and propagated the changes down through the directory tree, any folder that had the ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES (or
some other metro based user account) user got hosed.  (The ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES user got dropped).
This, combined with the fact that, I guess, the metro apps run under some user other than the logged in user or depend on a software component that does the same, AND that when folder access is denied to the metro app, the program just closes with no error
message, created the problem.
I understand that the metro app programmers are just too cool to need to bother with such error popups ...
Once ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES is added, the metro apps start working again!

Newly installed apps. ot appearing in program menu unable to pin apps to start menu.

This happened to me previously and I could find no solution....I eventually created a new admin profile, where newly installed apps appeared in the program menu and I could pin apps tomthe start menu feom a desktopmshortxut etc.

I copied over my video docs pictures and music folders to the new profile. Now a few months later the same thing is happening again. I have created a new admin profile and it all,works fine there. I have searched on the internet and others have the same issue, but of course anything you search for always finds someone else with the same issue...

Hopefully someone can help me with this very annoying problem

A:Newly installed apps. ot appearing in program menu unable to pin apps

UPDATE
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.....

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.

I've posted this on another forum but would like to get opinions from this group as well.

I'm curious. Why would anyone go to the trouble of developing or updating a Windows "modern" app considering the current environment. As I understand it, the current "Universal" app was supposed to bridge the environments between Windows Phone, Windows RT and regular Windows. It appears Windows RT has no future except for a trivial update that will come in October. Also, it appears that Microsoft is not being fully honest when they promise new Lumia phones, but then fired most if not all of the phone development team. Windows 10 appears to have deprecated touch. So what is left? Where do Windows Universal Apps really fit into the grand scheme of things? Is there any particular reason to develop apps in an environment that is so restrictive?

A:Discussion: Are Windows "Modern" Apps of any value?

My observation, from seeing the changes introduced in Win10 from the Insiders program is that MS is obsessed with the Metro UI -- and wants EVERYTHING to take on that look and feel, period. I don't use a Windows phone and don't have a current Windows tablet -- so I have no use for a one-size-fits-all UI experience. That means, I have no real love for the Metro UI.

Plus, MS is clearly choosing looks over features -- when they swapped out a fully functioning IE browser for a half-baked Edge replacement. And now, other app developers are jumping on the same bandwagon with VideoLAN producing a Store version of VLC -- which, folks have said -- (like Edge) does not have the functionality of its "legacy app" counterpart.

MS's end plan is probably to have everyone using apps from their Store -- so they can control the content, and ALSO, so they can charge folks for new apps and for upgrades. They're pushing their subscription model onto their Office products, wouldn't surprise me if they did this on their Store apps, as well.

One of the frequent questions on the Win10 forums is how to uninstall these Store apps -- and from what I've read, it's very difficult (if not impossible) to do. So, folks end up disabling them, instead.

OK i'd Sync, Admin etc???

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.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

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

You may also need to disable the new app notification before generalizing the image.

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

Windows Store - Sign in with Different Microsoft Account in Windows 8

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.

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.
