Windows 10 allows you pin apps, folders and websites to the Start menu for easy access. If you have pinned tons of apps and other things to Start menu, your Start menu has likely become cluttered by now, and you might be looking for a way to organize the tiles on the Start without deleting them.
Starting with Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft has introduced a new way to organize and clutter-free the Start menu. Like mobile operating systems, Windows 10 also supports creating app or tile folders on the Start menu now. In other words, you can create a folder on the Start to include multiple tiles in it. In short, one can put two or more tiles together to create a folder.
Creating a folder for tiles is a better way to reduce the clutter on your Windows 10 Start menu. Although it’s always a good idea to unpin rarely used apps from the Start, you can reduce the clutter by creating live app folders.
When you click or tap on a live app or tile folder on the Start, you can see the actual size of all tiles, and you can click or tap. As you can see in pictures, a live tile folder displays icons of all tiles inside it.
