    Default Can't open any apps?

    I just finished installing the Windows 8 Developer Preview. I can't open any of the apps like Weather, News, Paintpay, games etc.. Only Internet explorer and control panel opens up.

    I also can't find the shut off button.. Only log off and switch computer.

    After you logoff, click and hold the screen and push up. You will then have a shut down option on the bottom right side of the green screen.

    Well I met your problem yesterday. Are you using Windows 8 virtual PC? If the Windows 8 Developer Preview Edition has a low resolution, like 64x480, you can't open those applications. You shall set your resolution to 1280x800 or higher. Then you can open these applications.

    This problem troubles me a short time, and finally found the solution. That is the solution.

    BTW, even under 1280x800 resolution, a few applications can't be opened either, I think we need higher resolution.

    I ran across this too. Yesterday I was having no problem and this morning I rebooted my PC and there was a windows update. Since the update I haven't been able to open any apps.
