    Windows 8 Pro ($39.99 upgrade)

    a couple of app questions


    1. How does one name app groups and does the name appear on the screen?

    2. I have all ready downloaded about 8 apps from the app store, the problem I have is when I go back to the app store it is hard to tell which ones I have all ready downloaded, is microsoft in future release perhaps going to put a check mark on each app we download so we can tell which ones have all ready been downloaded?

    thanks

    Click the magnifier in the bottom right corner to minimize the whole screen, right click the group you want to name, name group icon will be in the bottom screen. HTH.

    An answer to your first question. On the start page get into condensed view (CTRL+Scroll down with mouse wheel) Then reight Click on the group and select Name. Give it a name and it will appear on the start page.
