I've finished adding shortcuts to the Start screen. Note that each desktop icon appears as a square tile, with a background color that matches the Start screen background. Each tile has a small icon and a label that matches the name of the program or folder.
That group of eight tiles is cluttered and will be much easier to use if the tiles for Office programs and folders are in separate groups. To create a new group, drag a single tile to the right until you see a faint vertical bar, as shown here. Release the icon to create the new group.
Continue dragging tiles to move them into the groups (and the position within each group) that you prefer. The positions you assign here remain fixed. If you add more icons to a group than will fit in the current number of rows, Windows starts a new column at the right.
