The Apps tiles are one of the impressive features of the Windows 8, which kept everyone amazed with its outstanding graphical intelligence. Generally the App tiles are scattered in a random manner in the start screen and it is really tiresome to find the Apps which are frequently used. So we can overcome this problem by separating the Apps in a different group and then renaming the group according to our needs. Renaming not only saves time but also makes it in the form you want, that is, organizing the Apps and naming it the way you want. Once you name a group you can find the group from the Start Screen as the name will appear at the top of the related group.
