Organize your apps

Pin apps to the Start menu to see live updates on what’s happening in your world—such as new email, your next appointment, or the weekend weather. When you pin an app, it's added to the Start menu as a new tile.

    Pinning apps to Start

Once you pin a new app, resize it. Press and hold (or right-click) the app tile, select Resize, and then choose the tile size you want.

Group your apps

After you've pinned an app, move it into a group.

To create a new group of tiles, move an app's tile up or down until a group divider appears, and then release the tile. Move apps in or out of the group to organize your tiles for perfect productivity.
