    Start Menu tiles, center app/icon text/label


    Does anyone know how to get the text in the tiles to center, like the icons?

    It's going to depend on the length of the name...
    Go to the folder where the shortcuts reside, rename the desired shortcut by prefixing it with a 'blank' character - Alt0160 then a number of spaces...

    You have to fiddle with how many spaces to apply depending on the length of the name...

    (Not as sophisticated as a manifest re-write or a reg tweak, but it works!)

    hehe, thanks. not gonna do that though. I refuse to revert back to the early 2000 with its styling hacks to get it to look and work the way you want. how have we ended up back where it all started?
    How do you add this to the manifest? most of mine have an xml manifest already anyway. might as well go down that road...
