Sorry I took so long to get back. I was occupied for the Holiday.
Okay, My bust. I did say desktop when I meant the shell (or whatever it's called it these days). I would like to arrange the tiles MY way, and not have them arrange themselves. When I drag a tile in a group to a spot, I don't want another to jump into its place, or have the tiles arrange themselves around the one I just moved. It's annoying! how do I make it stop? If I cannot do that, is there a way to turn the shell completely off, and launch "Apps" from the desktop? Is there a way to replace the tiles with Icons?
