Windows 10: Tiles in Start System move around and are scattered.

    Tiles in Start System move around and are scattered.


    The tiles are inconsistent in placement and trying to order them with the mouse moves other tiles in all directions.
    I have not tried to do a clean install of 10074 because I have quite a few third party programs installed to make sure they work with Windows 10.
    I am running Windows 10 as a second boot on my Inspiron 7520 laptop with 8 GB of memory.
    I am also having problems with Cortana but I will enter that in a different thread.

    Not on my system. . .. . .I know that doesn't help, albeit unless they do what is happening on yours, well. . .

    @ hrosita:

    It's a little bit tricky, but if you move them around slowly you'll get it.
    If you move them and a 'bar' appears, it will create a new 'group' (1)
    Then you can also move the groups around if you hover til you see the double lines (2)

    Is there a way to remove this "feature" and just let them float and stay where you put them?

    Not that I know of, or have tried!

    Snap Distance


    In my W10TP b10074 VM:
    • The "snap" distance seems to have been reduced to the width of the smallest tiles.
    • I can overlap tiles
