    The way the Start screen "fills" the icon space is specific, and it won't let you do that. I'm just doing an educated guess here from my experience trying to arrange Start screen icons, but it seems to want to fill the space by two-wide columns, top down first. To move your Reckoning under Chaos Legion would leave the void at the next two-wide location, so it wants to fill that first. Maybe there's a Start screen tweak program somewhere someone's done to modify that...

    Yup, mbratch is right! The Start fills two 'one tile' wide at a time. So, either you make the last two tiles 'two tiles wide' for them to be on top of each other. Or you insert al least one more tile next to 'Chaos Legion'.

    Good luck with it!

    Yes. For desktop Start Screen use, I could see it being quite nice if the user had more control over the dimension/behavior of each defined group of tiles. For example, auto-fill versus manual placement.

    Not sure about how to rearrange if you can or how it selects your apps but yeah it looks normal. just a bunch of apps.
