I've installed 12.3 and the Touched skin on my Lenovo Miix 2 8" tablet running Windows 8.1. But when I start the program I only see three buttons (rew, play and forward) on top and favorites in the bottom right corner. No home-button and no back-buton. How do I get back to the main menu?
I was having a similar issue with my Lenovo ThinkPad tablet 2 running Windows 8.1. I was able to setup the touched skin with out a problem, but as soon as I exited and started it again I ran into your problem with no usable interface. I did find that the re-Touched skin did work when I activated it. Here is how I went about fixing it:

1. go to the folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata
2. Open guisetting.xml in your favorite text editor (I recommend notepad++ but word pad will work as well)
3. search the document for "skin." make sure you have the period.
4. You should be on a line that says skin.touched replace that with skin.confluence save ant close the document
5. Now when you open xbmc it will be back to the confluence skin and simply download and use re-Touched (it is available under "Get More..." in the skin menu

I hope this helps you out.
