    Can I Change the Name of a Tile that I created myself?


    Having just Created a Tile, for a Forum I contribute to.

    Going by the Name on the Tile It isn't immediately obvious which Forum it is, as instead it seems to contain their Favourite Slogan.

    The Same applies to 'Tiles' I've created for Web Sites, where the Name on the Tile gives no Clue to which Site it is unless you happen to know.

    Is there any way to rename this Tile, so it makes more sense to me and if so how do I do it.

    I think you can if you do it fast enough, if not Just PM a Moderator and they will do it. I just tried it on a Thread I created yesterday and it worked.

    Hi Gary

    Thanks but it doesn't quite answer my Question, as its not only 'Forums' but 'Web Sites' as well, perhaps I should have made that a bit clearer in my Question, so I'll try and do an edit.

    No. .you can't change the title of websites,. You can only do this if it's your site. Or the owner of the site gives you the power to do that via changes to the HTML, etc..

    Ok Many Thanks

    Another good reason to be able to Change the Colour of Individual Tiles.

    The OP isn't asking about changing names of websites, he wants to change the text on the tile in his Start Menu.

    Yes! Bang on.

    That is exactly what I would like to do, just change the 'name' on the 'Tile' so I know what it is.

    Thank you so much for taking the trouble to post that but its Way, way, out of my Comfort Zone, to attempt to do something like that, as unless you know what you're doing it could all go horribly wrong.
