    How to change Start Screen tiles color

    Hi everyone,

    Is there an easy way to change my Start Screen tiles color so that it follows my theme color? Currently, the tiles are all in different colors and it is horribly ugly.

    I have spent some time searching the internet for solutions but none of them suit my needs. All of them requires changing each tile manually and each time I pin something new to the Start Screen, I have to change the color for the tile manually again. I am looking for a simple solution to change the tile color to my theme color once and for all.

    Thanks in advance : )

    This has been discussed by many - and so far Microsoft isn't listening. It seems to me Windows 8.1.1 update would have been a good place to include the ability to change tile colors, but from what I have seen of advance info on it, there is not tile color change included. There is no way except partial (MS Apps aren't included) using Olby Tile - [APP] OblyTile - Tile Creator for all programs. - xda-developers These tiles stay colored as shown, even after shutdown and restart, or restore operation. However, as indicated, I can't change the MS Applications.

    Attached is what I was able to do with it on my Start Screen. Actually, my desktop Icon is blue also, instead of purple - screenshot somehow changed it.
