    Tiles


    Afternoon all.
    All the tiles on my start page are in categories with a name at the top to denote each category. I want to start a new category so how do I do I put a name at the top.


    All help gratefully received. arram.

    Hello Arram,

    You would need to drag a tile to create a new column/group first. Afterwards, you'll be able to name it.

    Start Screen Apps - Organize into Groups

    Hope this helps,
