    Hi there,

    you can customize the tiles with this program ==> [APP] OblyTile - Tile Creator for all programs. - xda-developers

    If you want to customize the background of Start etc I highly recommand you use Decor8 ==> Decor8 - Personalize the Windows® 8 Start screen with Decor8™!

    If you browse the "Customization" section of this forum you can find more tips and trics.
