Will windows 8.1 allow us

#1DarthFrozanousPosted 9/18/2013 4:55:01 PM
to create custom tiles like .exe files for the metro screen? Right now I use an app called PinAnything to do that but the app has been removed as of a few months ago. Will 8.1 give us windows 8 users the ability to pin whatever we want with whatever customized pic we want?

Will getting windows 8.1 remove installed metro apps?

8.1 won't allow you to do it on its own but there's a program called Oblytile that does it really well.

This is what I use.

I heard that Modern Tile Maker is an alternative; not sure how well that one works.
