    Transparency on the tiles makes that one look good topguncp, makes me more likely to get W8 Pro and Decor8!

    I made custom icons for my desktop apps with the really awesome program OblyTile and slightly modified versions of these icons. I mostly use the start screen like I used the start menu in Windows 7: mostly shortcuts to folders/libraries and semi-commonly used programs.
    Can you please tell me how you modified those icons? I'm using the same and i'm looking for probably the same modification; I like the icon in the tile smaller than the original.

    Your screenshot looks like you did the trick.

    The app OblyTile was mentioned.
    Read carefully.
