When I change the group text color to black in Decor8, the tile names also become black. How did you set yours to white while keeping the group names black?

thanks for this, but how do you add the text above the tiles; example: metro, web, desktop and games?

Thanks, I would argue that how windows 8 looks is quite subjective though, personally, I love tiles and the desktop is there if you prefer to use it. A lot of people have issues with the start screen but if I'm using desktop apps, the most I generally open it for is to type the name of an app and hit "enter". A process that takes all of about 1 second :)

Agreed. I feel like a lot of people who dislike Windows 8 may not have spent enough time with it. I love the search, design, and everything. Mostly everything is faster, especially with the shortcuts. The only thing I'm trying to get used to is the ribbon in file explorer.

Thanks for this!

This is a feature already built into windows 8, when you're on the start screen, see the little square at the bottom right?

Click that and all of the tiles should go tiny. If you've separated them into separate groups already, all you need to do, is right click on any given group and click "name group" on the bar at the bottom.

Hope that helps.

I use oblytile to set the custom tiles

I used photoshop with a batch action to add a vignette (with lens correction and a white layer set to multiply) and subtle noise to the existing icon images.
