Pin apps to the Start menu to see live updates on what’s happening in your world—such as new email, your next appointment, or the weekend weather. When you pin an app, it's added to the Start menu as a new tile.

Pin apps to Start

  1. Select the Start button, then press and hold (or right-click) the app you want to pin.

  2. Select Pin to Start.


    Pinning apps to Start


Once you pin a new app, resize it. Press and hold (or right-click) the app tile, select Resize, and then choose the tile size you want.


Tip: Drag and drop apps from the apps list to pin them to the Start menu as tiles.

Group your apps


After you've pinned an app, move it into a group.

To create a new group of tiles, move an app's tile up or down until a group divider appears, and then release the tile. Move apps in or out of the group to organize your tiles for perfect productivity.

To give your new group a name, select the open space above your new group and type a name.


Tip: Save space on the Start menu by grouping your apps into folders. Create a folder by dragging an app's tile onto another tile. Move as many tiles as you want into your new tile folder.
