  2. Pressing and holding a tile group for a few seconds will display a check mark in the upper right corner. Drag the tile group down and release to display the option bar at the bottom of the window.
  3. Select the Name group option and enter a description
  4. The name of the group will be displayed above the group.
  5. The two-finger spread gesture will return the zoom level to the standard view.
