Store Icon on Start Menu not working after Windows 8.1 upgrade

2013-10-31, 19:13 PM

Hi There,

 

I own an Ideapad z500 non-touch version preinstalled 8.0 OS and I have recently upgrded to Window 8.1. 

 

Now, to the probem part: A few of the Icons on Start Menu especially Store & Map icon etc are not working. After tabbing to open, it closes and jump back to Start menu.

 

Now I am not able to go Store to download apps. Prior to the upgrade, I have no issue accessing the Store. Please help....

Try running the Troubleshooter in Action Center with administrator rights.

Tried but doesn't work. Seem to be some display updates issue but after updating to latest version for Win 8.1, still got the same problem.

 

Any way to reinstalling the Store app?

Not just Store Icon not functioning (open for few seconds and then closes). My Skype, Maps, Reader and some other Icon are not working too. But I can see the page running in background.

Welcome to the forum John163.

 

Did you see the Levono 8.1 upgrade doc? Pay attention to paragraph 3. :smileysurprised:

Thanks for info. My system was not ready for 8.1 upgrade.

 

Problem solved by restoring back to Win 8.0 and everything is back to normal.
