  1. Running app disappears between the two screens


    This has happened several times:

    I have extended my laptop on a bigger screen. I start a new app/program from the taskbar. The program starts but is nowhere to be found on either of the screens.

    The only solution is to switch back to "PC Screen Only" where it shows up and then project again.

    Has anyone else faced this issue and is there a workaround?

  2. The 'Photos' app for photo viewing has disappeared.

    I do not understand this, when I returned to the PC later today my original settings had returned to the start screen, including one other tile which I had also lost but had not yet re-instated. Also the original list of 'All apps' had returned to the start
    screen, including 'Photos'. There is nothing that I am aware of having done that should have caused the original disappearance of some apps from the 'All apps' list and their associated tiles, or that could have caused them to return.

    It has therefore been unnecessary to follow your suggested steps, though I have done so anyway and it works as suggested. Note that I had followed your steps 1 & 2 earlier which is why I knew 'Photos' had not disappeared from the PC but was simply not
    visible on the 'All apps' list and hence my inability to re-pin the tile.

    Thank you for your reply and understanding my frustration.
