ALT+F4 leaves an unknown-app

    Question

  • Hi,

     

    I'm not sure if this is a bug or whether or not it is a known issue. To reproduce the problem -

     

    1) Launch Tube Rider 2) ALT+F4 and the Tube Rider will be closed, leaving an all-green screen. 3) Click on that all-green screen it will back to the Start screen. 4) Click the Start of the system menu. 5) repeat step 4.

     

    You'll see that the screen keep switching between the Start screen and the all-green screen. If you launch another app, that all-green 'app' gone.

     

    Is this a bug? What is that all-green screen belongs to? The app container?

     

    Thanks.

    Success!   The Mounted ISO trick worked after all!  All I had to do differently was right-click Run as Administrator on the Setup.exe file.   Now I get to find out how much customization I had previously done to make W8 P without Tools usable...  ; )

    That would be nice.   How do you do that?   FWIW pressing Alt-F4 on a Metro app does nothing for me, even using OSK.exe to make sure that it isn't my hardware.

    Do you have the developer tools installed? I think you need that for Alt+F4 to work in Metro apps.
     
    I do have them, and I see the green screen also.

    Thanks, David.

    I'm still trying to figure out how I can install  W8 P with Tools.   I think I may have to buy an 8 GB USB stick...   ; )

    I just bought a 5-pack of dual layer DVD's. About US $15. It worked first time, so I have four left...
     
    But I'm thinking of getting an Acer W500 tablet, and for that I will have to go the USB stick route I think.
