From the same developer of our previously shared Windows 8 Charms Bar Customizer tool called My WCP CharmBar Customizer, My WCP Start Screen Customizer is another customizer tool to customize Color and Background of Windows 8. Although Windows 8 Consumer Preview has default option to customize Windows 8 Start Screen and Metro UI Color/Background, this tool provides advanced options to customize each element individually. My WCP Start Screen Customizer is free and portable and since it doesn’t do anything except of changing colors, it doesn’t consume any system resource once closed. All you need to do is to open it and the change the colors and finally apply those changes. You then need to log off and log on again to feel changes. You can change color of each element individually and also change maximum number of tiles on a row in Metro Start Window. More to read.
Since this is a portable tool, just download and open it to run. If the SmartScreen Filter blocks the program then click Run anyway to run it. From the application window, click on a element and change it’s option. Once done, click on Apply new settings. You will then be asked to log off and log on on your account.
If you aren’t satisfied with the result, simply click on Restore default settings to revert all changes back to default.
During our test, My WCP Start Screen Customizer works nicely. Although it’s a bit confusing to identify elements but once you got it, you can make your system more appealing. My WCP Start Screen Customizer works on Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
