[SNIPPED]


Hmm, your weather live tile works?
Mine and a few others doesn't, it's just the plain old tile, even though it's turned on, and tried reinstalling the app.

like I said, its marked as legacy and obsolete, although they need to keep the Win+R key but still take it to something that lets you type in command line esc commands like run did... but with the start menu removed now, how do you do that without going into command prompt

You can pin "Run" to the Start Screen or the Taskbar. You couldn't pin Run in Windows 7 to the taskbar.

1) In the bottom right corner of the Start Screen, you'll see a little icon that looks like a negative sign.

2) Click on that to zoom out the tiles.

3) Right click on the group of tiles you wish to name.

4) At the bottom, you'll see an icon to name that group.

5) Click on the icon, and after you're done, press "Name".

6) Single click anywhere on the screen to bring the tiles back into focus.

You're done!

What's the limit for columns in a group? Is it 4 or is it something you can control? I never did try and mess with that for it.
