Icons not displaying properly on task bar

Windows RT 8.1

I have a new computer (Microsoft Surface with Windows 8.1) and have only downloaded Adobe software on top of what the computer came with. The computer has already crashed once (it froze and restarted itself) and after recovery, the icons of Windows apps do not appear on the task bar. A square appears and I can click it and it will take me to the open app however the square is blank with no icon. I have checked that the box is ticked next to the "Show Windows Store Apps on the Taskbar" option through the control panel but to no avail. I have also run a sfc/scannow command but this did not find any integrity violation. Any thoughts as to how to fix? Thanks

The PDF reader no longer works after installing Windows Updates.

Windows RT 8.1

Original title: Restore to previous update or disable updates on Surface RT I read on these forums that I can't disable automatic updates on the Surface RT. Please consider making changes to this. How can I restore to the previous update on the RT? If I can. The new update installed yesterday. The PDF reader no longer works. It opens, but the pages never load. I really need this function to work. Desperately need it this month for my work. I experience issues with every update. I was better able to deal with issues with the last update than this one. I've downloaded several other PDF readers, and tried different PDF files that used to work just fine.

Google Map's location labels loading in wrong location

Windows RT 8.1

I have looked all over the internet but have seen nothing yet on this: Is there any solution for the issue of google maps loading with the map labels offset to the right? It happens whether I run it in full mode or lite mode, on the desktop or from the start menu, and it hasn't helped clearing out any caches, cookies, or factory resetting IE11. I am really irritated that 5 months after getting my Surface, I still don't have a resolution to this issue. It's an expensive piece of equipment to have this frustration. I'm not trying to get some small unheard of app to work here, I'm talking about one of the most used apps in the market! Google and Microsoft just point fingers at each other over it, which isn't helping anyone. Please, if anybody, expert or not, has found a solution to this, please let me know. Thank you! PS. Look at the screenshot to see what I mean. The capitol is not in the Anacostia river, the pentagon is not in the Tidal Basin, and the highway's labels are nowhere near the highway line.

Food and Drink App

Windows RT 8.1

I added a new recipe that I found in one of my mom's old cook books and I wanted to put it in one of my collections but I can't move it out of the "My Added Recipes" file. Is there a way to move it out of that one so it can be in my dessert collection?
