    Unable to Remove Folder From Start


    I inadvertently dragged a tile into another.
    Now there's this damn folder tile with 2 tiles and I can't remove it.
    I can't drag any of the tiles out, right clicking only allows Resize.
    I even pinned the recycle bin to the start screen and dragged it onto that, didn't work.

    Any way toireverse this useless feature???
    Also, any way to turn it off???

    I tried all that before I posted.
    Nothing works.
    Remember this is a tile with 2 tiles inside.

    Have you tried system Restore. It may solve your Tile in Tile issues?

    I've corrected the issue.
    It was just a click away.

    Thanks,
