    Nice one.

    My Win8 CP on usb is not activated on all pc's so I hope this works with the not activated version unlike the built-in customizations.

    I'm gonna check that out.

    Thanks

    I dunno now. I tried it out quickly after posting and it appeared as though it made changes by closing/restarting Explorer, but then after even a reboot, nothing changed for me.

    Could be my settings and running without UAC or something, but I don't think so.

    If anyone would like to try this, at least keep this in mind. It may not work, or like I said, it could be just me. I didn't troubleshoot at all.

    It's a bit buggy. But worked finally.

    After applying your settings, log out from Windows interface (don't use the button in this program => it didn't worked 3 times in a row, it crashed once)

    Good luck

    I applied a 3500x800 picture as background and worked.
    Text and colors worked also.

    This is a customized start screen:
    Click image for larger version

    After applying the settings Explorer must restart ifself or we have a problem (settings don't apply).

    I think this software contains, possibly, some sort of malware. When I installed it, I didn't really have that much use for it. Now, my computer can't find the program, AND I can't uninstall it! On top of that, the Windows 8 native calendar will not open. At all. Could someone help me?

    Softpedia would not host malware so that can be ruled out. It's not a program that installs itself. It's a single .exe file to run.

    Well, the file was inaccessible from anywhere on my computer, so I decided to restore my computer to 4 days ago. Not too bad. However, this software's not my thing, just saying.

    My windows 8 calendar also will not open since trying to use Win CP Start Screen Customizer despite restoring to default settings and uninstalling calendar and reinstalling it.
