    Trying to resize or move start screen tiles goes to blank desktop

    This happens to me quite often. I have a Dell Latitide 12 with Windows 10 Pro installed. Sometimes when I want to resize a tile, I right click it and as soon as I highlight resize it will exit to a blank desktop even though I am in tablet mode. Also when I click a tile and try to drag it to where i want to move it to, it will exit to blank desktop even though I am in tablet mode. Is there any way to fix this?

    Use Group Policy Editor.
    Go to Start/Search and type gpedit.msc, right click the gpedit results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated group Poicly window go to
    Local Group Policy Editor :: User Configuration :: Administrative Templates :: Start Menu and Taskbar :: Start Layout . If Enabled, you can disable it to unlock the tiles to arrange them. Once you have arranged the tiles as you like, you can return here to Lock the tile screen.
