Fun with Windows 8 Tiles


#1

Just for fun, decided to make some Windows 8 Metro-style tiles for Rhino on my start screen… You can 't do this yet in native Win 8, you need a nice little freeware utility called “OblyTile”. Apparently in Win 8.1 you will be able to customize tiles (how much, I don’t know)… What’s cool is the utility also allows program switches in the shortcuts, so you can add schemes (as I did) or “nosplash” if you want. For other non-metro (desktop) programs there are already hundreds of pre-made tiles available if you go looking.
