               windows 8 launches with its new interface,all colorful tiles and touch-friendly apps.And if you're using a tablet then it'll all be very straightforward:just swipe left or right to scroll the screen ,and tap any tile of interest.
             On a regular desktop ,though,you might alternatively spin the mouse wheel to scroll backwards and forwards. and you also use the the home or End keys to jump from one end of your start screen to the other,for instance,then use the cursor keys to select a particular tile,tapping Enter to select it.Press the Windows key to return to the start screen;right click (or swipe down on )apps you don't need and select unpin to remove them;and drag and drop the other tiles around to organise them as you like.

3.App groups

        The start screen apps are initially displayed in a fairly random order,but if you'd prefer a more organised life then it's easy to sort them into custom groups.

        Right -click within the block (while still zoomed out)and you'll also be able to give the group a name,which -if you go on to add another 20 or 30 apps to your start screen-will make it much essier to find the tools you need.
