If you are like me, I am coming from the iPad to Surface. On my iPad I have folders of apps that I categorize for better organization and a less cluttered screen. When I got my Surface, I was wondering if it had similar functionality. While you can’t create folders, you can though create groups of tiles/apps.
I have done this and have been using these groups. After doing so, I have come to admire how the Surface handles this and have grown fond of it. I actually like it better than having folders so to say.
So, here is a quick How To on creating groups on your Surface RT.
First, pinch inward to zoom the Start screen out. There you will see a bird’s eye view of the Start screen and the tiles you have on it.
Second, press and slide down the section that you want (at least one app has to be in the section to be able to select it) to create a group of. Once it is selected, you will get the action bar and it will prompt you to create a name for the group. Type in a name and click the name button.
Voila! You know have a grouping on your start screen. You can now add tiles to that grouping by moving them into that section/group.
