Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Unpinning or removing applications, part of Learning Windows 8.
The more time you spend with Windows 8, the more likely you are to install …additional applications. But from time to time, you may decide …that those applications are no longer all that useful or you're just not using them …very much. In those situations, we have a couple of …different options as it relates to the Start screen. …You can Unpin the application from the Start screen, essentially hiding it from …view, or you can Remove the application altogether. …Let's take a look at both of those options. …I'll go ahead and scroll over to the right here. …And let's assume that I've been playing a Chess game, but I've decided I'm just not …enjoying it very much because I'm not very good, so I don't really feel the …need to have the Tile for this game on my Start screen.…
I can simply flick in that Tile or right-click on the Tile using the mouse, …and then, from the Application Options bar, I can click the Unpin from the Start option. …You'll see that causes the Tile for that Chess game to disappear from Start screen. …
