Windows 8.1 Migrating Tiled App Crash Issue


New Member
On my Surface Pro with Windows 8.1:

Last night, Mail, my sequentially first tiled app on my start screen, began crashing on start-up. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled. Problem fixed - for that app. I found the behavior then migrated to my Weather app. Same procedure (uninstall and reinstall) and it's fixed - for that app. The behavior then migrated to Skype - the next tile in line. Shutdown and restart didn't help.

The crashing behavior seems to be migrating to the right on my metro screen. I don't want to reinstall every app on the Surface Pro.

Anyone else having this issue?

Any fixes?

More on this.

The problem migrates between live tiles. Uninstalling and reinstalling the affected application causes the problem to move to the next tile.
