    When your screen resolution is too low to run Windows 8.1 apps, you get this message that won’t go away even after you click Close:

    This app cannot open

    The screen resolution is too low for this app to run.
    Change your screen resolution

    To get the This app cannot open message to go away without changing your screen resolution:

    1. Click Close to get back to the desktop
    2. Right click the purple search icon in the taskbar
    3. Click Close window

    The This app cannot open message will then close properly.

    ❗ To get Windows Store apps to run (without this message), your screen resolution must be at least 1024×768
