One of the features I enjoy on my phone is rearranging the home screen(s) to display or group the apps to make it easier for me to access them. Windows 10, with its Start menu, has this same functionality. We have discussed in other articles how you can pin items to the Start menu or how you can add a tile to the Start menu. Using the Start menu, by default, is a great way to find an app and launch it. There are, however, ways to make it just a bit more helpful, and that is arranging the tiles into groups, so you know exactly where they are, allowing you to launch them quicker.
To arrange the tiles, click and hold a tile and drag it where you want it. When you release the tile, the other tiles will rearrange themselves around the one you just moved. Once you have placed the tile(s) in the location you want, you will see a title above each group of tiles. Click on the title and you can change the title to anything you want. By doing so, you could transfer the apps you use most frequently for work into the same area.
This straightforward trick can save you time in launching apps and allow you to have more control over Windows.
