    cannot edit tiles in windows Start menu


    Hi all,

    Wired issues popping up now...

    I cannot seem to be able to edit the tiles in the start menu.
    I cannot move, resize and add tiles.

    I've checked the register for a value that disables edit in Policies Explorer under HKLM and HKCU and I have nothing there that suggest about disable edit.

    Any idea?

    Hi, Someone noted here that temporarily enabling Tablet Mode may fix this.
    (apologies, attribution lost)

    1. Open the Action Centre
    Turn on Tablet Mode (should all now go full screen)
    Try moving the tiles ..
    Open the Action Centre and turn off Tablet Mode
    Screen should be back to normal - try the tiles again.

    2. Set full screen, then revert to normal
    3. Change user account to admin from user and back again if appropriate
    4. Try creating a new user account
    (if it works in a new user account, your user profile is corrupt, if not, Windows or a setting other than in your profile is corrupt).

    You will be able to find more by using the search box above:
    start menu tiles stuck
    tiles don't move

    etc.

    Hi I'll do a search.

    I can't enable tablet mode. This is a new user.

    Don't understand why 'new user' prevents you from seeing Tablet Mode in the Action Centre (blue fly-in on the right).

    Could you post a screenshot like that or failing that, say what you see please?

    It's just grayed out. Can't click on it.

    Ok, please check if it works in a new user account or not.

    If not, I think you will need to do an in-place upgrade repair install.
    Post back about the effect of creating a new user and I'll post instructions on that as necessary.
