    Organising apps/installed programs

    Hi all,

    I'm totally new to Windows 8. I would like to know if it is possible to organise this screen:

    I would like to make it so that screen just shows a list of my installed programs (rather than including files like README etc.). Is this possible?

    Also is it possible to combine the 2 lists into 1? At the moment there is Apps and then another separate list...

    Thanks for any help.

    Hello Matt, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you can use the method in the tutorial below to remove items that you don't want on your Apps screen.

    "Apps" Screen - Add or Remove Items in Windows 8

    The Apps screen is not as organizable, but you could use the method in the tutorial below to help some.

How to find installed programs
Alright, this might sound as a stupid question, but I'm not able to find some of my installed programs (neither in Metro nor with the searching function at the top right corner). The only way I can find 'em is by going to the installed location. e.g. µtorrent Thanks in advance.
