Windows Start Screen


Honorable Member
I have just bought a new computer with Windows 8.1 and I am confused and underwhelmed by 8.1.

My main gripe is the totally uncontrollable start Screen.

OK I can sort apps into groups and name the groups so that's a start.

After getting apps into different groups I now set about sorting them so I click on an app and drag it to it;'s correct place. This works OK perhaps once or twice and then all of a sudden all of the apps in the group tear around link headless chickens and I am back to square one with a random selection.

Is there anyway to stop this automatic re-sorting of the apps? I cannot see why it does this as it appears to have no function what so ever. Why should anyone want their selection to be randomised?
