    Looks promising!

    We'll all be curious what the final result will be.

    Keep up the good work.

    Question for any one that can help !!
    Does any one here know how to change the default windows app background images?
    I have located the image files within the Windows App folder (that I have already taken ownership of) that I be-leave control these setting but upon editing nothing happened
    Any help would be greatly appreciated as my patience is running thin on this one.

    I have changed every image and icon within these files with no success, Is there something else I should be doing.

    I wish to change the actual live tile backing I'm sure I pointing in the right direction just not doing that one little thing right you know how it is.
    Will start poking around in a few .dll tomorrow now and see if the answer lays there.
    Any way thank you for taking the time to search this subject for me Bill most appreciated and any other ideas will be most welcome.

    As IownAmoneyPit said (thanks!) I created it, it's not exactly a theme and it can't be exported easily since the setup largely depends on the applications you use, and you have to install several third party applications to get everything the way you want (Oblytiles for the Tiles, Decor8 for the custom background, and Photoshop for the fixed tiles layout) I have to edit the PSD everytime I move a tile around to keep things coherent, it's kind of a pain. thanksfully I don't change apps that often and I only use those custom icons for my most used / must have applications, which rarely change.

    However, I'm working on a set of Tiles (similar to the ones you see under the "Système" and "Avancé" groups, only with several different colors) that I'll share to the community of eightforums soon.
