Metro Apps won't open

    Question

  • Hi, In the start screen, the only apps that open are Control Panel and Desktop. I can click the other apps and move them around, but they just don't open at all. Please help!

  • Are you using a netbook with a 1024x600 screen?

    1024x768 is the minimum resolution for Metro apps.

    Yeah. :( That's why. That's ok, will it run if I plug an external monitor?

  • Several people have reported that they can be run if you connect an external display that is 1024x768 or larger.

     

    Also, you can try this modification to allow higher resolutions:
