Is there a way to change applications icons?

    Question

  • Ok, so I've been playing around with the release for a while now and although being a bit meh in some cases. It still looks very nice.

     

    However when adding programs to the metro ui for example Chrome and Microsoft Word the tiles look really bland. Is there a way to customize the tile? Furthermore is there a way to make the tiles larger like is possible with some of the other applications preinstalled?

     

    Thanks,

    James

  • Hey there,

    Currently, in the Windows Developer Preview, Metro styled applications will have the full tile to add visual enhancements, while legacy application tiles will have their traditional icon located in a squared tile.

    I believe in the Windows Developer Preview, the current settings are the defaults with the OS.
