I am running Win 8.1 preview and when I right-click the start button (yes, now included) I see a context menu with 18 helpful programs. The only problem is that when I click (left-click) on most, they simply don't run. In fact only desktop, run, and search, function. I am running as an admin, checked all group policies, checked windows installed programs with no luck. Any thoughts? Thx
