How to remove words "VAIO apps" off windows 8 metro screen???

[ Edited ]

Just got the SVJ20215CXB (Sony Vaio all-in-one) and on the Windows 8 Metro screen are the words "VAIO apps" in the middle of the screen (to the right of the "Start" text). How do I remove this??

 

It looks like it was originally there so that people were supposed to put Sony tiles underneath it, but thats ugly. How do I remove it?

Please use plain text.

Hi BRKING,

 

     To name, rename and or delete a group of apps on Windows 8 metro apps screen, please follow the following steps. 

 

 

  1.  Bring up the metro apps screen and left click on the minus (-) on bottom right corner.  That while minimizes the apps screen to a smaller screen.
  2.  Right click on the group of apps that have the name "Vaio Apps."  That should put a check on top right of that group.
  3.  Left click on "Name Group" (pen with a circle around it) on bottom left corner.
  4.  A screen will pop up with "Vaio Apps" where you can type. 
  5.  Either back space and delete Vaio Apps or rename to something you like. 
  6.  Then make sure to click on "Name" in blue to apply changes.

Nick-
