This Start screen displays three different personalizations.
First, note the custom background color and texture.
Next, note the live tiles, which update continually thanks to connections to web services.
And finally, feel free to move those tiles around. They won't resist.
With a simple gesture, you can zoom out to see the entire arrangement of tiles on the Start screen. Select a group to move it, or use the app bar to assign a name to a group.
The minimum required resolution for a Windows 8 desktop to take advantage of all Metro features is 1366x768. On a large deskop monitor, at 1920x1080, the amount of space available for tiles expands greatly.
