    Start Menu Custom Icons?


    Is it possible to swap out the default icon with custom one? I use to use a app called OblyTile within Windows 8 and would swap out my icons with custom ones. Is there anyway to do this in W10?
    Thanks.

    Right now there is now way to do this. The icons come from each program/software/app and unless you can change that you can't change the icon on the start menu.

    Hmmm. Thanks for the advance and the rapid response my friend.
    How do I go about changing the icon from each program/software/app?

    I thought about that last night and unless you can de-compile the executable.. change the icon and recompile the program/app there is no way that I'm aware of.

    sorry

    You can use the resource hacker to change the icon in the executable. You should not have to de-compile the executable.
    Here's the link: Resource Hacker

    It worked just fine for regular programs. I changed the ICON for Notepad2 with no issues. But I don't know if it will work for apps or not.

    Try it out.

    When you say apps do you mean games?

Tiny icons in Start screen tiles
I was trying to figure out why the Start screen looked odd--and then I noticed the app icons in the tiles are about 1/3 the size they were in Windows 8, so you've got (for example), a tiny W for Word in Windows 10 vs a more visible W in Windows 8.1....
