yes of course you can, just right click the tile and you'll see a menu open up at the bottom. Select unpin from start. Tile gone

If you want to put a tile on the start screen simply right click the file / folder and select pin to start.

Have a look here for loads of info about Win8 and the customising the start screen. http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/ http://www.eightforums.com/software-apps/ http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/?filter1=Taskbar%20Start%20Screen

Those should keep you occupied for a while. As I said the start screen is much more useful than it 1st looks. The other important thing to remember with win8 is the keyboard shortcuts using the windows key. Have a look here http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2355-windows-8-keyboard-shortcut-keys-list.html
