    Created group on desktop - how to remove the group

    I have only had this laptop for three days. I have accidentally (I don't know how) created a group on the desktop and four tiles have disappeared. How do I get rid of the group and get the tiles back? Thanks in advance.

    Hello Tony, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like you are referring to the full Start screen instead of the desktop.

    If so, option 6 in the tutorial below can help show you how to remove a live folder by removing the tiles in the live folder back to the Start screen.

    Thank you for your reply, Brink. Since I put up my original post I discovered how to get rid of a group from my start-menu. I restarted my laptop and the group appeared with all the missing tiles in it (not just the group name). I dragged the tiles off one at a time and when I dragged the last tile, the group self-destructed. Strange way to go about things but, if it works, what the heck!
