    [Q] How to change Metro background color?

    I chose green color as default but I would like to switch it to different color.

    I googled but I only can find how to change to a custom background.

    I'm not looking for that option though. I just want to get to the option when you first install Windows 8 where you had some choices of default color combinations.

    Could anyone direct me to the location? I can't seem to find it.. Thanks!

    Try this:
    Start Screen - Change Background Color and Image

    Windows needs to be activated for this to work.
