Windows 10: How to group tiles Solved

    How to group tiles


    I can move items from the Start list to produce tiles and I can enter names in the name bars but I am finding it impossible to group tiles. One of the tutorials seems to suggest that all you need to do is move one tile on top of another to group them, but all that happens for me is that I end up with one tile chasing a second tile around the screen! So, what exactly am I doing wrong?

    Tiles below that name bar is actually a group. If you click on name bar, you can drag it to different location (all tiles at once). True tiles grouping is coming with next update (Insider preview at the moment).

    Hello Agrippa,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to group your apps. Is this the tutorial you are referring to?

    Start - Group your Apps in Windows 10

    The tutorial below can help show you how to group you apps into live folders, but this is not available until Windows 10 build 15002.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I've sussed it out now. What I needed to do was to drag items from the Start list into the group.
