    So I really wanted to add some labels to my start screen to make it less cluttered and just to see if I liked it. I tried some apps (new section and groupy) that added tiles that would make labels but they just didn't cut it. But after some finagling with spacing and multiple small tiles I was able to get something I liked. Check it out.

    Can you let us know what app you used please?

    I used groupy. It is ghetto but what you have to do is separate each word into multiple tiles. For example for the label "System" I made one tile with " S y s" and another tile with "t e m ". Note the spacing. Set the font size to huge and center the text. Not everything works perfectly, but it does exactly what I want.

    I recommend WizTiles. It's a little more feature-rich than Groupy. More stylish and customizable, too.
