    Hi.You can customize the Windows 8 Start screen for your business in many ways. You can add tiles for your LOB apps, remove tiles, move tile groups, and label tile groups.
    To customize start screen of Windows 8:
    1.Pin apps to the Start screen. From the Windows 8 Start screen, type the name of the app. When the app appears in the search results view, right-click the app and then click Pin to start.
    2.Drag tiles on the Start screen to reorder or group them.
    3.Click the magnifying glass icon in the lower-right corner of the Start menu to view the Start screen in semantic zoom.
    4.Right-click a group of apps and select Name group.
    5.Specify a name for each group of apps on the Start screen.

    Thank you.

    Hello friend..

    To Create a Custom Start Screen follow these steps:-

    Go to the Microsoft site, http://www.buildmypinnedsite.com, then under the "See your site in Windows 8" section, enter the URL of your Web site, and click the Show me! button to see what your tile would currently look like.

    Go to the "Build your own pinned site" section and upload an image, name the tile, and select a background color. Check the live preview screen on the right to see if everything looks to be in order.

    Go to the "Get the Code!" section and download the PNG image file. After you've uploaded the image file to your Web host, copy and paste the code into the <head> tag of your site.

    That's it. WordPress users can upload the PNG image file to the top level root directory and add the tile code into the header.php file.

    All the Best!!
