Steps to Rearranging pins

If  in the case you want to rearrange the pins, there are mainly two solutions. You can do it directly from the Xbox One, but it is not very user-friendly. There is an option called Move to Front, which moves the pin to the upper right corner. You can’t simply rearrange pins to specific locations directly from the Xbox One.
