Windows 10 Creators Update will allow to group tiles on start screen


Along with Windows 10 Insiders Preview build 15002, Microsoft added a new feature for Windows 10 Creators Update, that will allow you to group your start screen tiles to a folder. Tile folders are a way for you to organize and personal your tiles in Start.

 

In this post we will see how to group the tiles to a folder and access them. Continue reading my other posts on Windows 10 Creators Update to see what’s coming next.

Grouping 2 or more tiles to a folder in Windows Start Screen is not new. It was there for a long time in Windows Phone/Mobile. Now with the Creators Update build, Microsoft is going to push the same feature in Windows 10 for PC.

 

To group a tile with another, drag a tile icon on top of other and drop it. This will create a folder of tile icons. You can add many icons to group into a single one. It will look similar to this, having a wider tile experience:

You can resize the tile group to small, medium, wide or large. Here’s a preview to demonstrate how it looks with a medium sized group tile:

To access the icons from a group/folder, click on that group/folder to expand it and you will see a neat representation of all the icons available there (as shown in the below screenshot). Click the one that you need to access.
