    Windows 8.1 how to edit Tiles


    Is there a way to edit the content (path, name, image) of a standard Tile ?
    I like to p.e. alter the Weather-tile, so it goes to my favourite weather website

    I already know how to create one by myself.

    If it's a shortcut, yes. Right click it and select open file location. Then edit the properties of the shortcut. If it's a tile for an actual Metro App, no you can't edit it, not that I know of.

    There is more than one weather app in the Store by the way. You may find that the site you are talking about has its own App. I use The Weather Channel app myself.
