Hey everyone! I love to customise* my machine and there is no general repository of information for customising Windows 8, as far as I can tell. So how about a big thread about everything you can do to make your desktop cool, pretty or whatever you fancy..? Everyone who has discovered a cool customisation hack, tool or setting, please share! Anyone who's got [intelligent] questions, please ask! Let's learn from each other and get on top of how we can master the GUI of Windows 8... Existing Threads: How to get the Start button back, (Please see separate thread) Win 8 Wallpapers (Please see sticky thread) Other Potential Topics: How to Customise the Start Menu (Metro) - Really change it Does Stardock and similar companies make any products for Win 8? What other customisation tools (freeware, shareware etc) are available and what do people think of them? Real hacks that change the look and feel of Windows 8 - Description and implementation How to customise the Desktop - are Dreamscapes and moving desktops still around? Cool GUI features that exist in Win 8 and are new (trying to think positively...) How to get Aero back, and is there any point? Warnings - what NOT to do, or you'll break the installation.... Help if you've messed up... Annoying features and how to turn them off.... *duh spell-checker, this is UK spelling, and it is correct.
