    Troubleshoot:


    :: First you need to restart your window8 system and then check your apps is now connecting or not.

    :: Then also sign in to your Microsoft account from the “change PC settings “and switch into Microsoft account.

    :: Otherwise find out the problem with the help of trouble-shooter, and for that go to the start-up screen and type trouble-shooter and hit the network and internet option so that it will open .Once this will open, this will find out the problem automatic and then try to solve it OK.

    Dear Friend..

    Please ensure that the internet you are using is properly managed in terms of connection,
    Try to check all the wires and cable are connected with your device.

    If they are connected then check that is your internet plan has sufficient speed to update these apps.
    Windows 8 required is very fast and quick and it also required a very fast internet connection.
    Try to update your metro apps with high speed connection with Airtel, TATA Photon or Reliance Data Card as they have 3G connectivity,

    Also try to ensure that you have installed right software and drivers for connecting net.

    Hope you are clear ow,
    Thank you..
