You can change the prominence settings of your tiles by making them larger or smaller -- or you can unpin them from where they are, or even uninstall them if you no longer require them.
By scrolling from right to left by the edge, you are presented with the 'Start bar', which gives you access to your Start screen, your sharing options, your default settings and search menus. It also displays the time and date on screen, regardless of which application you are in (I'm in a drawing application, by the way!), as well as the network strength and battery levels.
The search bar allows you to search through your various applications, or the web, for content or websites. This search bar is only a swipe and a tap away at all times, even if you are in the regular Windows desktop.
