    I have been told that I have too much pinned to my start screen.

    I have 51 total - 5 double wide (large), 10 medium, and 36 small.

    My start screen changes almost daily but that was my set up as of this morning.


    So I am curious, how many do you have pinned right now?

    I'm a minimalist, just 24. And I probably really only use about 18 of them regularly.

    I wish there was some apps line you could actually organize apps like creating folders. So far as I know there is an app for that which is about to release in some days. Will keep you guys updated. 😃

    I have 23 tiles pinned: 12 small tiles, 8 wide tiles, and 3 double wide tiles. I am too OCD about the different colored tiles and shapes.

    Get "group tiles" it allows you to make fake tiles that act as headers, quite customisable too and you pick the text.

    For eg i have a media section, photography, news and tools.

    I have 56

    Double = 12
    Medium = 4
    Small = 40

    I never rearange my home screen though. I have tried before, but it just doesn't feel the same.

    Having folders would reduce how many I have pinned. I like to have things close and I can't help but have a few large live tiles showing off the OS

    Ha! I agree; it's hard to get used to it. I still haven't found the "perfect" set up which is one of the things that I love about WP

    I have looked at this app but I feel like it just makes my screen more cluttered. If there was a way to do a double wide that was 1/2 as tall then I would consider.

    Glad that I am not the only crazy one; I keep trying to reduce but then I just add more. I probably have an illness or addiction.

    I know wwhat you mean. Its alot of black space, and it does make your start screen quite long. But i think the final result is nice and ordered

    Folder tiles would be perfect. But great would be what Paul Thurrott on Windows Weekly suggested. Similar to how Windows 8 handles search, a searchable start button. When you start typing in the field it not only brings up Bing results, but apps you have installed and any other applicable subject. Maybe apps, music, podcasts, etc. in the phone store.

    While it would be cool to have it all in one, you can just swipe to the app list and there is a search there. Or click the letters to get a quick jump.
