Single click files and start screen folder

I am just trying to get to grips with Windows 8 and would appreciate a little help. I like my folders and files to open with one click and have done for many years. I cannot seem to find the way with this new system. Can someone put me right please?

Also I have purchased an office package, (Office 2007-it is enough for me) and there are about six icons on the start screen with it. Is is possible to create on folder that I can put all the parts in? Some bits such as Access I will rarely use and would like to put them out of the way.

Open control panel, select Large Icons under View by (top right). Select Folder Options, under the General tab dot the button for Single- click to open.... then apply then OK.

As for the tiles in the start screen, right click a tile not required, select 'unpin from start' at the bottom. To get a tile back to the start screen, right click a blank space then select 'all apps' at the bottom. In the 'all apps' screen right click a tile and select 'pin to start'.

Thanks for that. I have sorted it now. That answer was just what I needed
