    Very nice wallpaper, Jarminx! Mine is 3 screens long also and getting longer.

    That is nice and neat, Tews.

    IownAmoneyPit does have a good idea there, Meeky555.

    It's nice that people can come to see variations on Start Screens to get ideas. One of the best threads on the forum!

    One of my favourites so far. Was it easy to do?
    Yes it was fairly easy to do, I decided to use all small icons for installed applications on the left side and store downloads & games on the right with the middle row containing bigger icons for items which are used frequently.

    PS: After I add another 3 icons to the right side everything will look symmetrical.

    How's this for a wide and boring Start Screen? I just don't like all the multi-color tiles, guess I'm too uptight - lol!

    Nice screens tcman50 and John!

    John, just like the desktop, we get to customize the SS any way we want. If that's what you want, so be it. You're the one that has to look at it.

    Here's Bing pic of the day looking at you,
