Group and Name Windows 8 Tiles on Start Screen

Windows 8 Start screen enables users to group and name Windows 8 tiles to take control and manage them easily. When you install a new app from Windows store or install a new software on your Windows 8 PC, a new Windows 8 tile is added on Start screen. This tile is a short-cut to launch the Windows 8 apps or programs from Start screen.
