Hello Rick Mueller,
The minimized items position is set to right by default, but you can change it whenever you want using the MinimizedItemsPosition property of the TileView. You can set the position in xaml or in code behind. Could you please examine the sample project that I've attached and if you have further questions feel free to ask ?
All the best,
the Telerik team
