A tile is an appâ€™s representation on the Start menu in Windows 10, and can be either static or live.
A static tile displays the default content, which is generally just the name and a full-tile logo image for the app.
Live tiles can show updates from your friends, new email, app notifications, and the next appointment on your calendar at a glance, even without opening an app. And because everyone who uses the PC can sign in with their own Microsoft account, each person can personalize their own tiles, colors, and backgrounds.
If live tiles were disabled, the tiles would only be static.
This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable live tiles on Start for all users in Windows 10.
