How to Customize the Windows 8 Start Screen

Add tiles for apps, programs, folders, and files you need.

After you’ve purged any unwanted tiles, rearranged the remaining tiles, and added new tiles for items you need, your Start screen may meet your needs. If so, stop. You’re done!

When first installed, the Windows 8 Start screen includes two unlabelled groups of tiles, with a narrow space between the two groups. Windows 8 didn’t even bother to name the two groups. And, if you’re like most people, you probably didn’t notice the slightly wider space that separates those two groups. And that brings you to the next step.
