    On the home screen, we need to find the store tile.
    Mine is located at the bottom. You can see that there is a blue tile background and now there are some images related to the applications available on the store. Your images will be different, but you will always see this image; a white carry bag in 3D and this will identify it as the store tile. You will have a different background than mine if you have set a different background on your home screen. Bear in mind that the tile may not be blue. If you have not pinned the store tile to your home screen, then swipe left and find it in the applications menu. Once you have located the store tile, wherever it is, press down on it and it will enter the application.

    We want to type in the name:
    "cool tiles". We can press the search suggestions, but since we have typed in the whole name, we can press the enter button which is this black arrow in the white box to search. Press down on that and it is going to search for the cool tiles application.

    There is a selection of cool tile applications.
    You can see there is one at the top which says "Cool Tiles!", this is by "GoTiles". There is another one underneath it called "Cool Tiles" which is created by "Studio 8". We are going to focus on the "Cool Tiles" by "Studio 8".

    The cool tiles are more transparent and they give you a set number of cool tiles.
    They give you cool tiles for common applications. These include things such as Weather, Internet Explorer, Video, and Music. Even though you may already have these tiles pinned to your home screen, you can just unpin them and pin these new ones on. They are more interactive, more transparent, and they allow you to see your background image and you can also create customized tiles which we will show you how to do in another video.

    Now, we want to choose a tile that we could use on a regular basis.
    "Bing Travel" or "Food & Drink", for example. Let's press down on "Food & Drink". You can choose any tile you like. Press down on it and this will take us back to the home screen.

    On the home screen, you can see that this new tile has been activated and is pinned to the home screen.
    Now I can just press this and it will take us to the Microsoft Food & Drink application which I knew would have been installed on your Microsoft Lumia 535 as a standard because the phone comes with the application.
