Opening an App
The app tiles on the Start screen represent applications installed on your computer. You also can add tiles for desktop programs, such as Microsoft Office programs. When you open an app, it fills the screen. The first time you use some apps, you might be prompted to log in to your Microsoft account—just follow the onscreen directions to do so. You can use touch gestures to move around an app, or you can use the mouse and keyboard to interact with the program.
- Display the Start screen.
- Click the app you want to open.
The app opens in full-screen view. In this example, the Photos app opens.
