    Chrome tile


    Hey guys!
    I have a weird problem with my Chrome and I hope someone can help me:
    When I first installed Windows 8 there was the IE tile, with lighter blue background and white icon. Then I installed Chrome, at first start I used it as my default browser, mostly in W8 mode, sometimes in desktop mode, but it always had the grey background tile with the Chrome icon. I wanted to make new tiles for my non-metro apps with OblyTile, and because I use IE sometimes I made one for that too, but after that my Chrome tile became a standard non-metro style tile with blue bg and smaller icon, using it first opens the desktop then the metro-mode chrome, and the original IE tile (I kept it from the beginning) reversed to the original, blue bg, white icon style, but Chrome is the default browser.

    Can you help me to reverse Chrome to the gray bg tile and make it open the metro-mode without first opening the desktop?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why not just try to do an in-place reinstall of Chrome for starters and see what happens?
