Fix Metro Apps Crashing on Start in Windows 8, and 8.1


Any time I format a computer or install windows 8 or 8.1 on any computer, I usually come across this problem of Metro Apps Crashing on start or when clicked. I had to endure it for a long time till I came across this fix using the registry editor (Regedit).

I know it will work for you also, just follow the steps below.


  • Open Run Command (Windows Key + R)
  • Type Regedit
  • Right click on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
  • Click on Permissions…
  • Click Add…
  • Click OK

Chip in: I ticked Allow for Full Control and Read Permissions. (Use at your risk).
