    Custom Tiles yet?


    Does anyone know of a way to customize the Tiles of Windows 10 like how it's currently possible when using OblyTile in Windows 8.1?

    While I'm really liking the concept of Tiles I, in general, do not like how they look like as everything end up a huge mess of different colors and styles - IF they even bother adding an image to it - so I kept doing my own but that's not of much use if I can't keep using them in Windows 10 :|

    So yeah... Anyone got a solution or maybe a recommendation for different program that would allow this?

    Thanks in Advance =)

    Nothing available. The designer of Oblytile said that's it ! Will not be designed for Windows 10 !

    As much as 10 is a great OS, you can't do this in Windows 10.

    From posts on another forum it sounds like its not 100% dead yet... we shall see. MS should have a built in tile maker.. kind of silly that you can't do this... no different then the ability to create shortcuts right?

    It's definitely possible. That Steam Tiles app is able to make live tiles with custom images, albeit only for Steam games, but still it shows that custom tiles can be made. It would be great if the author of that app would expand it for general applications.

    The worst thing is that even Microsoft products (Skype, Office etc) have really bad looking tiles.

    Better StartMenu


    I've just published an app to create tiles on Windows 10 Start Menu. It's called "Better StartMenu". You can try it for free.

    Better StartMenu

    Here's Windows Store link:

    Here's a screenshot of what you can do with Better StartMenu.

    Why is it two programs? And why would i keep the non-store one running all the time?

    No thanks.

    I'll keep waiting.

    Because the desktop app handles the tile clicks, so it should be running when you click a custom tile.

    Looks good, but will wait till there is a non store version available and one that doesn't need a window running minimized all the time.
