    Change color of tiles in Windows Start Menu?


    Does anyone know how to change the color of individual tiles in the Windows Start Menu? By default the color will match the Start Menu background color and there's no Windows setting that will allow to set a tile's color. Thanks

    Hi, I recall someone mentioned this:
    TileIconifier v2.2 - Native tile shortcuts t… | Windows 10 Development and Hacking

    Example for 1 particular tile:
    Start Menu Tile Troubles

    This thread mentions another utility:
    Removing Colored Tile Backgrounds from Start Menu Icons

    There are various threads discussiing tiles on the Start menu - feel free to search tenforums for more.

    The new 20H2 update lets you change the tile covers to match your color theme.

    So are you saying you want those ugly blue tiles ?

    And you don`t want the change that 20H2 can do ?

    I`ll say this though, I don`t think I`ll like a blur affect at all.

    Microsoft is graciously letting me now, that I can install 20H2, so nice of them

    I have my 850 Pro tester ssd back in there, so.... I`m tempted to see how it will look.

    Look at post #1 - nothing was said about blue or any other specific color We should be able to choose via M$ Windows without jumping through hoops.

    I could confirm deleting the registry works. I did it myself by going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FeatureManagement\Overrides and deleting the whole '0' folder, but before it you need to change the permissions of the folder so you have an access to do it
