EDIT - This is about the app shortcuts, NOT Start menu tiles. See attachment
I just formatted by laptop and installed Windows 8.1 Pro x64 a week ago. I am already regretting the "upgrade" -- I cannot find a quick way to manually sort/move the Start>Apps shortcuts.
The following applications are listed in ABC order by starting letter (A*, B*...) preinstalled shortcuts, Store apps, Lenovo update service, Firefox, and Thunderbird
The rest of my applications are grouped by folder, as they would appear in Program Files (x86). This includes: Chrome, Steam, Intel, Windows Accessories...
QUESTIONS: (1) Is it possible to ungroup these shortcuts and alphabetize them as the first set of apps are? OR group ALL apps to my liking? (Group Mozilla, Windows Store, Win8-only apps...) (2) Can I add my own shortcuts to the Apps menu? (for example, Snip-it is an accessory but not listed with the others.)
