    There is an app called Steam Launcher which will let you make tiles from your Steam games.

    My first real attempt at doing much....hope you like. This is a new installation and I am still playing about with it. The pic is Hurricane Sandy approaching NY. The desktop wallpaper is the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights). This is only an experimental effort, and will be improved-upon over the next few days. Artistically talented, sadly, I am not. :-( Wenda.

    Edit: Sorry, the program I used is Windows 8 Start Screen Customiser V1.3.

    Hi Wenda,

    A little bit offtopic..... but the first picture is NOT hurricane Sandy. It is however a scoop that was very hot on Facebook at that time. It is just a "The day after tomorrow" inspired Photoshop art picture by photographer Mike Hollingshead.

    Sorry to 'wake' you up....

    ps. The Aurora Borealis picture is beautiful though!

    You may be able to add the 3rd party game to Steam, THEN use the launcher to add the live tile.

    (forgive me for being off topic)

    Otherwise it will be Steam games only.

    That's fine, Snoober, I'm always happy to be corrected. I was only going on the (obviously wrong) info available with the pic. One of the disadvantages of using pics off the 'net, I guess.

    It does look pretty impressive, though, and I do like the Aurora pic. :-)

    This is only my first effort at customising the Start screen, no doubt I'll get better at it.

    After months of deliberation and going through several committees, I've decided on a BMW theme. Aw yeah.
