    Are all of the tiles / metro UI buttons in Windows 8 supposed to work? I am running Windows 8 on my Acer netbook and only a few buttons, such as Control Panel and Desktop will work.

    For some reason clicking on any of the others doesn't result in the application being launched. Or indeed any change at all.

    Am I missing something here?

    Hello! Thanks for the reply Capt. Jack Sparrow

    My resolution is 1366x768. Will that be a problem with Windows Metro?

    Nope that's fine. Anything below 1024x800 will be problem.In your case try to reinstall the Display drivers.
