    Sounds like assuming you had your high res. dual monitor config originally it's nothing to do with that - the 1 dll error sthg like open*.dll is a known peculiarity of an Nvidia driver and SFC /SCANNOW so sounds like nothing there.. good news.

    Just a random idea- have you tried changing the tile settings- show more tiles, full screen on and off?

    This post indicates someone got it working.. how is unclear to me.
    This one magically works for me!

    Hi, I'll put this in a different post as it will be longer:

    1. Complicated solution (maybe)
    Local Group Policy Editor :: User Configuration :: Administrative Templates :: Start Menu and Taskbar :: Start Screen Layout .

    - which says
    Specifies the Start layout for users.

    This setting lets you specify the Start layout for users and prevents them from changing its configuration. The Start layout you specify must be stored in an XML file that was generated by the Export-StartLayout PowerShell cmdlet.
    To use this setting, you must first manually configure a device's Start layout to the desired look and feel. Once you are done, run the Export-StartLayout PowerShell cmdlet on that same device. The cmdlet will generate an XML file representing the layout you configured.

    Once the XML file is generated and moved to the desired file path, type the fully qualified path and name of the XML file. You can type a local path, such as C:\StartLayouts\myLayout.xml or a UNC path, such as \\Server\Share\Layout.xml. If the specified file is not available when the user logs on, the layout won't be changed. Users cannot customize their Start screen while this setting is enabled.

    If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the Start screen layout won't be changed and users will be able to customize it.

    Simpler solution (maybe)
    How to lock metro tiles in windows 8.1 - Microsoft Community

    This tool may well offer you a way to 'unlock' the tiles.
    Yess... but you probably forgot the: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar\Start Layout settings.

    If this enabled, this should be lock the start menu configuration or modification for all user!

    Hope this will be help for everybody... :)

    I figured out what this problem was for my system. The latest graphics driver for my 770M's had a new feature I'm not use to seeing during install which the name ends with LS. I done a clean install of the older driver and everything is back to normal and can move my tiles around again. I'm not sure exactly what causes tiles not being movable with the graphics driver but the was the issue. Hope this helps someone with similar issues.

    New nvidia driver solves the problem. They were released today.

    a year later and this is exactly the problem I am having. Win 10-64 as soon as I click to move any tile, it opens the application (or folder) my "tile menu" is now a hodgepodge with no organization whats over. just like the person who started this thread it worked perfectly for a couple of years but sometime this summer it changed. Have been on many forums and still can't find the answer. I

    figured this out and have posted this in more recent thread. My issue was caused by my wireless mouse. I switched temporarily to a wired mouse and was able to rearrange my desktop. hope this helps someone else with the same issue.
