Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Start Screen.


  2. If you are using a tablet, press two fingers on the screen and move them towards each other. Or, if you are using a mouse, click at the extreme bottom-right corner.


  3. If you are using a tablet, press the group of tiles and move your finger a bit down. Or, if you are using a mouse then right-click the group of tiles.


  4. Click Name Group.


  5. Type the name that you want to give to the tile group and click Name.


  6. That's it.
