    Place start tiles anywhere


    Firstly not 100% sure how to word this so it makes sense, so bare with me a bit. Is there a way to make it so that you can place start tiles anywhere on the screen, E.G when you move a tile it automatically snaps to the highest point in that row, if possible I want all my tiles along the very bottom of the screen, with nothing above them. If that makes sense?

    Thanks in advanced

    Sorry. We don't have that kind of control to customize the tiles. They always start top left corner of a column, go right, and down. Just like you read a page of text.

Start screen tiles won't move.
Whenever I try to move the tiles after half a second, they snap back. If I unpin any tiles they re appear after a restart. I have no idea why they're doing this and it's so annoying. Does anyone know how to stop this? Thanks, Rick
no response from tiles on start-up

Most of my preinstalled app tiles suddenly don't load. Clicking on them takes me to their screen and immediately returns me to the start screen. Any thoughts.

More (smaller?) Tiles for the Start Screen
Considering the high resolutions seen on moderate sized tablets I can understand why the limited number of tile rows (7 max) would make sense. However, the Start screen would be easier to configure for my many productivity programs on a 24-in 1920x1600 monitor if there could more rows of tiles....
