    Is there a way to change the Icons of Metro Tiles in Windows 8?



    Microsoft placed horrible icons for tiles like "Store", "Camera", "Mail" , "Messaging", "videos" and "Music".

    Is there a way to put high resolution icons for these tiles?


    Thanks in advance.

    I have one method, but I don't really know IF and HOW it works with RP/RTM. Try it yourself:

    I've recently install Office 15, and these applications have perfectly 150x150 tile icons.
    But, I cannot change these app tile icons, since the tut above just has the effect for default app!
    I cannot find the folder for Windows Office 15!

6023 It only fits two rows of apps and even the metro app I've been working on now has everything sized funny. This could come up as something that will bother users and make our apps look terrible without the user even knowing why.
