Start Screen Clean Up

I needed to cleanup and organize my start screen a bit. I set up a few more groups as documented here;

I also noticed I have a lot of large tiles that don't need to be big. it is easy to shrink them. Touch a tile and pull down slightly to select it. The menu will pop up from the bottom and one of the choices is to change the size of the tile. I moved some tiles around and my Surface is organized.

This is one of my primary complaints as I feel like I am always scrolling. It would be better if there were more rows for tiles.

It is possible to get 4 rows on your RT. I have. You just need to change a setting in the registry for the size of the screen. 12.1" seems to be the optimum setting.

You can always take a backup of your registry before you tinker and can restore if you don't like what you've done. I'm really pleased with the way mine looks now

It really isn't that hard to do. I have done it without any problem. I have also changed the touch setting to be more responsive.
