Basically you are missing the tile for “pc settings”…. no worries. 1)go to your startup menu and right click on any icon and it’;; take you to the file location. 2)Keep this folder open and now press window+R and type in “%programdata%MicrosoftWindowsStart MenuPrograms” Without quotation marks. 3) keep these two folders open. 4) Not go to the first folder where it lists all the shortcuts icons. 5) Look for “PC SETTINGS” icon, it should be a blue icon. 6) Copy that and past it on the other programs folder. 7) Once that’s done open search bar and look for the same icon “PC Settings” 8) Now right click on it and click on the “Pin to start” Thats all now go back to the main menu and check if it worked….and like my comment if i help you. :) Saiyan Warrior April 27, 2015 yeah searched that one up mate and you have to pay for it, and to me that’s not worth it so I searched for alternatives and I found a pretty good app called Obly Tile which allows you to create metro app short cuts on both the desktop and taskbar. FlippinWindows | #1 Windows Tutorial Channel! April 27, 2015 ModernMix if you read on it does have its own features that Obly Tile doesn’t like making the Windows Apps into a Windowed Mode instead of Full Screen. That’s why it costs money. 😀 Saiyan Warrior April 27, 2015 Yeah I read about that but that’s not what I was looking for I just wanted a short cut on the task bar so =) FlippinWindows | #1 Windows Tutorial Channel! April 27, 2015 Try uninstalling the update via Programs and features; installed updates. Look for the update by number and uninstall it. Reboot, install the update again then see what happens. That is my only solution. InfernoVergil April 27, 2015 great video you made : ) FlippinWindows | #1 Windows Tutorial Channel! April 27, 2015 Yes read what Microsoft says about that too….. Tenjin San April 27, 2015 MS again trolling their customers hard, lol. Even regular Joe-Schmo must be mad like hell now. Sincerely, which professional would use this clusterfuck for productive work? A 3 year old? FlippinWindows | #1 Windows Tutorial Channel! April 27, 2015 You are right, there was a small bug in the Windows Store. I managed to fix it by attempting to refresh the Windows Installation, but that failed with a BSOD and who would have know that a blue screen would fix it. 😀 wahabthesmasher April 27, 2015 couldent find the update number D: oh well i have to wait for the real release because this is a beta right? Eric chhun April 27, 2015 hey do you know how to fix this problem, When I change my lock screen It change to a different picture. Like for Example like I change my lock screen to a bmw car and when I click on window L it change to like an apple background. FlippinWindows | #1 Windows Tutorial Channel! April 27, 2015 Yes if you seen my desktop, you can see that I’ve pinned them to the taskbar. This is using the program called ModernMix. You can only pin and app to the Taskbar though. NOT the Desktop. EMGamingZ April 27, 2015 i downloaded iso and installed that way Looks good! But there is some bugs 😀 jipr April 27, 2015 Hi. When I navigate to PC Settings and click the next screen is blank. The various options are not displaying for my particular user account, yet they are for other user accounts. Please help. Saiyan Warrior April 27, 2015 Hey Mate, do you know if there is some way to pin a modern app such as the “mail” on the desktop or task bar for easy access in windows 8. wahabthesmasher April 27, 2015 i need help i used the microsoft uprgade file and then it rebooted and all that but then when i did the update from the store it was download i canceled it because i need to shut down my computer because i needed to sleep the next day i cant find the update on the store nor can i use the update file FlippinWindows | #1 Windows Tutorial Channel! April 27, 2015 If you have your lic product key, then you should beable to revert back. You do have the option to just update, so try that first. Otherwise if you plan on installing fresh the Windows 8.1, then I would suggest using a virtual Machine. João Paulo April 27, 2015 FlippinWindows My windows 8 pro is original if I upgrade to 8.1 I lose my license? thereact April 27, 2015 I gotta say, its a lot better than windows 8, which really sucked in my opinion. EMGamingZ April 27, 2015 if i uprgrade nothing happens :S euheide April 27, 2015 Microsoft has basically taken a mixture of internet shortcuts and Microsoft program shortcuts, stuck them in a tiled screen and presents it as the new Windows 8. It’s basically forcing you to use those internet pages and Microsoft software… No more free will, no more free market. Windows is only interested in selling Microsoft products and promoting Microsoft websites… This reflects really badly on Microsoft. EMGamingZ April 27, 2015 LOL Comments are closed.
