I think the metro app works great in Windows 8 Desktop mode and hence you need to open it onto the desktop mode. Then only you can able to fix such issue. Then you need to click the WinKey and it helps to switch system to desktop mode. After doing this task, you found that your application gets activated and describe the captured metro UI. Then try this and locate the result onto it.

The minimum resolution for the metro style applications to run is 1024x768. Hence as per the requirement you need to set the resolution of your device. If you work on any computer system or portable devices, you need to set the screen resolution that works to run this application on your windows 8.

Sometimes this kind of problem arrives on your system when Your files and personalization settings would be change. In that case, you need to perform an reset setting task on it. this restore the setting to its default stage will be works to fix such type of issue. This is necessary when the setting of application won?t able to start the application in correct format.

Re: Nothing happens when i click the metro applications on windows 8

One of the most frequent problem have come upon, is when you try to click on a Metro tile nothing happens. There are few reason behind this issue.
  • One is screen resolution. We need to set the screen resolution on or over 1024?768.
  • The other reason is to be as if UAC is turned off totally then the Metro applications won?t work properly. For solving this reason we need to go to the More Settings option in control panel and then set User ?Accounts and Family Safety? option to ON stage.
This is the two reasons behind this issue. Then use the mentioned process onto your system and solve this problem.

Surprisingly, I first installed the 32-bit version of Windows Development Preview 8 with 4096MB RAM. Then it gives the similar type of problem. I use multi monitors on this system. Hence I just try switching into "full screen" and toggle the multi monitors feature. It works to fix my metro application problem.
