    Have you tried Olby Tile? I've been using it since I installed 8.1 and it works great - no problems

    Here's a shot of my Startscreen tiles - all changed to blue. Desktop shows purple on this screenshot, but it is really showing blue too. I like mono-color themes as you can see - lol. Hated the multi-color tiles MS set up for 8;1. Hope this helps you.

    Nice but a bit busy for my taste. Mine is very unbusy and there are still a few that can go. I keep most of my stuff in a toolbar called "All" that you can see on the right of the taskbar.
