  • Have you disabled the UAC? In this case Metro apps don't work

  • Hello manav9871,

    For Metro Apps to work, you need to have the following:
    1) Your screen resolution needs to be at least 1024x768. You state you do have this resolution.
    2) Next, if you have turned off User Account Control, your Metro apps will not work. Andre mentioned this issue in his reply.
    You can check if UAC is enabled here: Control Panel > User Accounts > Change User Account Control Settings
    3) Try using a Local account instead of a Windows Live ID account.

    4) If you are using an Windows Live account, the password cannot be greater than 16 characters. If it is greater than 16, then enter only the first 16 characters instead of the entire password.


    If Metro Apps are still not working your other option would be to Refresh your PC.
    When you refresh your PC, your files and personalization settings won't change.

    Your PC settings will be restored to their defaults.
    Apps from Windows Store will be kept. All other apps will be removed.
    Follow the steps below to restore your PC:
    Enter the Start screen
    Click Control Panel
    Click General on the left column
    Under the Refresh your PC without affecting your files, click Get started

    Then follow the instructions that will be displayed on the screen.
    Once the refresh has finished, test to see if the Metro Apps are now working.
