    Not the entire Start Screen but part of it showing some customised tiles. They were constructed using Serif DrawPlus and Xara Photo & Graphic Designer and then put in place using OblyTile:

    Been busy and haven't had a chance to come on to one of the, if not the most important thread on this forum.

    The Start Screen is an ingenious invention. Lots of great Start Screens I see here! And to think some think they're ugly.

    I see some newcomers here too. Welcome a million times to the forum!

    Here's mine. The 1st, of course, is semantic zoomed out. It is 4 > 19 inch screens long. The second is my first screen with frequent items I use. I placed news apps tiles on the right so when I'm there I check headlines. I use Bing Desktop for a different pic daily.

    9 preview is to be released on the 30th. We had better get our Start Screen, eh?!! I don't want no stinkin' Start Menu!

    I always liked the tiled Start Screen too HippsieGypsie. Yours look good.

    I thought I'd show the entire Start Screen of my Desktop computer and mention the background. It comes from 'Solitataire 3D', downloaded from the Windows Store. When the game completes successfully, it does a number quite impressive animations. The background shown is a 'still' captured from one of them:

    Nice screen! Thanks for sharing that and the game, mart77.

    Huge fan of solitaire and majong. I have MS Solitaire collection via Xbox. I'll try this one out.

    I remember some members trying to get the old MS games from accessories to work just because they disliked Modern Store apps.

    This is part of mine, just started creating custom tiles, mainly just for pinned sites and desktop applications. The only reason I wanted to do it was because they just didn't blend well with metro apps.

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, redlynch. It’s good to have you aboard.

    Nice screen! One of these days I'm going to find the time to customize tiles. Too busy during the summer. Perhaps this winter.
