    Work tiles and play tiles


    I have a surface pro 2 and i use it at work so i ideally want my "work tiles" on the front screen and them at a certain time then say switch to my home/play tiles at say 6pm. Is this possible to have a set of tiles for a certain job rather then setting up two accounts?

    Not really. Only way is to set up two accounts, or place all the tiles for work & all the other tiles into a folder. Personally it is easier to just use Stardock software's Metro Mix and do everything from the desktop.

    At least then you can do what you want, and have them grouped on the desktop.
