    Hello ectech,

    OPTION TWO is only for Windows 8.

    For Windows 8.1, you would need to use OPTION ONE instead.

    Start Screen - Change Background Color and Image

    Hi Brink,

    I tried to use option one from the tutorial but I wasn't able to find the same results.

    The reason I went with option two is because I can remember seeing the screenshot you have listed.

    Once I went to follow the guide for option two I realized those menus were gone.

    I then also realized it was clearly marked Windows 8.

    No worries mate. The important thing is that you found them, and was able to change it how you wanted.
