    Unite Apps by Group


    Hi, back again.

    So Windows 8 unites apps by group instead of burying them in folder.

    How do I unite apps? Do I just drag one over another? Like if I have MS Suite, I would unite all Office programs together. Is this not correct?

    Thank you!

    Hi Lemur,
    Yes, you can create a group by dragging the apps.
    EDIT: I meant in Metro Start Window.
    Sorry Lemur, I may be wrong but have a look at this Tutorial and it may be helpful: https://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...ndows-8-a.html

    It would be ideal if one could chose individual colors for the tiles depending into which group I want to put them.

    For some reason, I m not liking the Metro UI. Even after spending so much time on it, I still feel it could have been better. Hoping for some new builds though.

    Well let's hope that they will improve it. And of course the metro ui looks quite bad, why? there's no programs for it. just some toy apps and weather. Just wait for a year (and half) and let us see the metro ui then
