    How do you turn off live tiles?


    guess the tile says it all, I can not see how you turn on/off live tiles, am I missing something?

    Dumb question, perhaps. Which live tiles are your referring to?

    This was mentioned in another Thread, as you can see the option to hide or enable a live tile has been removed from the right-click menu. I had to manually edit my location of the weather tile with paint in Win 10.

    Still not sure I am on the same subject.?? I opened mine and, as usual, directed it to the town where I live. Looks fine. I can turn the tile off, and, visually, it returns to the blank default. I then need to open it for it to find its way again.

    If I want to lose the tiles altogether, I just "Unpin from Start"

    davehc if I interpret your screenshot correctly you are using the old resizable start menu with this new build and that is why you are still able to turn a live tile on or off, If one is using the new Start Menu native to 9926 build then the option to turn live tiles on or off is no longer available.

    Not me. I have done nothing too it.? fwiw. I cannot resize it. I'll have a look at the link and see how it compares to what I have.

    P.S. Later. Nope. Done none of those things. This was a clean install, by the way??

    Hello Dave,

    Do you see this below when trying to resize the Start menu? You'll have to be using the older resizable Start menu to be able to instead of the newer expandable Start menu.

    My reply was based on your screenshot of your Start Menu in post #5 which looks different than mine (Note the difference between the edges & expandable button in the top RH corner), As to why they are different is a mystery.
