      Windows 8 Tile/Apps screen Disappears

      Windows 8 Tile/Apps screen Disappears
      For some reason when I turn on my Windows 8 Lap Top it has just started to bypass the Tile App Screen and goes straight into the desktop Mode.
      The Tile mode displays for a few seconds and goes immediately into Desktop mode (original mode)
      I have done system restore but to no avail.
      I want my Windows 8 Tile mode back!
      Help

      Tutorial at Desktop - Restore Missing Tile on Windows 8 Start Screen and also at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...6-17f906b7e2c1

      If that isn't your problem then you've probably changed a setting when you moved the mouse cursor in the top left/left margin of the Desktop that allows access to tiles already running.

      Or changed something in the Settings accessible by moving the mouse to the top right of the screen.

      Good luck! I gave up and went back to W7!

      Have you installed a new desktop application recently? I did in the early days of windows 8 and forgot to untick a box in the installer that also installed a start button application that had the ability to bypass the Start Page

      Go to Programs and Features and see what has been installed recently.
