If you recently upgraded Windows 8 Release Preview or Windows 8 Consumer Preview to Windows 8 RTM, you may have run into a couple of strange problems like missing apps and tiles. Some users have reported that the Desktop tile was missing from their Start Screen and a bunch of other preinstalled apps like Windows Store and Remote Desktop!

In some cases, upgrading to Windows 8 from a pre-release version of Windows 8 or even Windows XP or Windows 7 can corrupt some of the system files and cause some of the default preinstalled apps to simply disappear like Games, News, Sports, Travel, etc.

In this article, I'll show you what to do in order to fix the corrupt system files in Windows 8 so that you can recover your preinstalled Metro apps and also the Desktop tile on the Start Screen if that is missing too.
