The Start screen apps are displayed in a random order and there will be no doubt some apps that you will never use.



To organise them is very easy.
To move the tiles around is just a matter of grabbing them and sliding them to a more appropiate position.
To remove a tile from the Start screen, right click on the app and a command bar will open.



The choices you have vary from app to app but they all allow you to 'unpin' them from the Start screen.

To move app groups around click on the little magnifier in the bottom right hand corner



and this will switch the view to a smaller concentrated view.



Now you can drag the groups left or right.

To create a new group, make sure you are in the normal start screen mode then drag a tile over to an empty part of the Startscreen,



a thick line will appear now drop your tile and the new group is created. Drag tiles that you want in the new group over and drop them.



To give each of the groups a name, click on the magnifier in the right hand corner to change the Start screen view.



Right click on a group and select 'Name Group' give the group a name then click on 'Name'.



As your groups or Start screen grows, for quick navigation to tiles that are off the screen, press the 'Home' or 'End' key. You can of course scroll to the end or use your arrow keys.
