Today, I’m going to discuss about the most common issues that were experienced by newbies to Windows 8.1/8. These issues are really frustrating and share a lot of woes. They may be due to invalid system file integrity, invalid registries, invalid policies etc. Due to these issues, people are getting back to Windows 7, which is very ridiculous.
On Microsoft Community, nowadays I’m getting these issues regularly and they all are due to improper way to use Windows. For example, if you have set invalid policies, then certain apps won’t work. So to sort out them, I’m going to introduce you with the dedicated troubleshooting tool.
Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter For Windows 8.1/8
Windows Store Apps troubleshooter is particularly helpful for the issues governing updates from Windows Store, or installation of apps from the same, apps not working properly etc.
When you run the Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter, it will automatically check for the following common issues:
- Protected audio is turned off
- Some security settings are missing or have been changed
- Service registration is missing or corrupt
- Microsoft account required
- Your system administrator has turned off some settings
- Screen resolution is too low (at least 1024×768)
- You are not connected to the Internet
- User Account Control (UAC) has been disabled
If you’ve upgraded your PC from Windows 7 and can’t run Windows 8.1/8 apps, it is probably because you have a third-party antivirus program on your PC that is blocking the apps. Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the antivirus program.
If you’re still unable to run apps, run the Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter. This tool can automatically find and fix some problems with apps. The troubleshooter will work on all languages but the text in the troubleshooter is only in English.
If one or more of your Windows 8.1/8 apps contain an “X” on the app tile on the Start Screen and won’t open, try uninstalling and reinstalling one of the apps from the Windows Store.
