Dozens of free tools have been released over the past couple of months to tweak and customize the latest Windows operating system. Among these tools, most of them help you customize the default look of the newly introduced Start screen.
While most of these tools are pretty good and work as advertised, tools that aim to change the Start screen background image with custom one are still in beta stage and don’t work on all machines. Windows 8 users who would love to customize the Start screen and don’t mind shelling out $4.99 can now download an awesome Start screen customization software.
Stardock, the company behind many popular Windows personalization tools, has released an ultimate tool named Decor8 to personalize Windows 8 Start screen. Ability to change the Start screen background picture is the core feature of the software.
Replacing the default Start screen background image with your own image is as simple as changing the desktop wallpaper with this tool. Simply browse to the image file and select the same to apply the new image as Start screen. And the best thing is you don’t need to log off or restart your computer.
This tool can also help you automatically rotate the Start screen background at specified time interval.
Decor8 includes some cool picture which you can also set as Start screen background. Decor8 can also change the Start screen color scheme, and change the number app tile rows on the Start screen.
Stardock Decor8 is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 8 systems.
