  • Hello jojo100232,

    You won't be able to use Metro apps unless your resolution is 1024x768. This is the minimum requirement.

    Other requirements for Metro apps are:
    1) Your screen resolution needs to be at least 1024x768.
    2) Next, if you have turned off User Account Control, your Metro apps will not work.
    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.
