Windows 8 Start menu

Custom Start Menu Tiles

Q: How can I easily create Start menu tiles with custom images?

A: I found a neat application on the XDA Developers website, called OblyTile, that can launch any link and use a custom tile that you specify based on images. OblyTile is very easy to use; I used it to create Start tiles for my kids' favorites movies on their tablets!
