If we talk about the Start Screen, it can be easily considered as the most distinctive modern UI based feature of Windows 10. Gorgeous and functional, the Start Screen lets you view a plethora of information with just a glance, thanks to the live tiles pinned to it.

Update (27th Feb. 2016): Start Screen is no longer available in Windows 10. We can only maximize Start Menu to look like Start Screen. After that, when you will move mouse cursor to the name of a tile group, you will see an icon (two horizontal lines) using which you can drag n drop a tile group.
How To Rearrange Live Tile Groups On Start Screen In Windows 10?
Rearranging live tile groups amongst themselves on the Start Screen is ridiculously simple. Using this, you can put an entire live tile group to another group’s left or right.

Now, simply drag it to its new position. Repeat this to change the positions of all the live tile groups with respect to each other. Here’s a screenshot:
That’s it. Once you’ve arranged the live tile groups as per your liking, click anywhere to revert the Start Screen to its original view, and you should see the change. Pretty awesome, don’t you think?
