3. Personalizing Windows 8 > Adjusting the Look of Windows 8

Adjusting the Look of Windows 8

In the preceding section, you learned how to personalize your Lock screen by changing the Lock screen picture, switching out your user image, and adding badges to your Lock screen. In Windows 8 Consumer Preview, Microsoft has also given us the ability to change the color scheme of the Start screen, which was a highly requested feature.

>>>step-by-step: Changing the Look of the Start Screen

Now in Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you can change the color scheme of the Start screen and select a background design so that you get just the look and feel you want for the background of all the colorful app tiles you’ll be displaying. You make the changes in the Start Screen settings in the Personalize category of the PC Settings window. Begin by displaying the Windows 8 Charms bar, tapping or clicking Settings, and choosing More PC Settings.
