If you want to change the size of the tiles on the right-hand side of the start menu, simply right-click on the relevant tile , move the mouse to " Resize " and then select the desired size with one click.

Reorder tiles

You can also rearrange the tiles by dragging them to the desired location with the left mouse button held down . If you drag a tile directly onto another tile , you can create groups . Several applications are then located in one tile. If you have many applications pinned to your start menu, this function makes it easier to organize and provides greater clarity.

Delete tiles
