Made my desktop match Start. Love the black on lime theme. Matches up with my Windows Phone.

Are you now able to match the desktop background with the start screen one in the RTM? Cant find a way to do that on the RP.

I don't think you can. I've not found a way to do it, at least. Which is what I wanted to do. The only thing I can think of is copying your current wallpaper into w/e folder has the Start Screen background.

No, I had to clear my Start Screen, snapshot it, and edit out the rest of the clutter in Paint.Net to use it as a background.

This should be moved out of the Microsoft Beta section. It hasn't been a beta for awhile now.

I really wonder how things will look if/when MS adds support for "small" tiles on the start screen. There's a case to be made that you'll start to run into scrolling hell at some point which is why I believe MS made the changes to WP8 that it did, small tiles as an option saves space etc, and also why they got rid of the right hand gutter (though some people didn't like it as well).

I like how you can spot Windows Phone users, they don't put caps inside the start screen groups names. :)

I'll be using that one when i get windows 8.

you can already set the tiles to be small it is in the RP version of window s8 and the CP so you can already you right click on the tiles and you have an option to make it smaller

I don't think that's the "small" i'm talking about though. Windows 8 has the default square tiles and then the bigger double wide tiles to pick from, there is no 3rd option like with WP8/7.8 to have an even smaller tile on your screen.

well the smaller size is rather smaller saving a bit of space here is screenshots showing the desktop tile for example

Err, he knows about that. Try searching for WP8 screenshots to know what he's talking about.

IS there a way to use your own background on the Start Screen in RTM yet?

No not yet, expect some sort of tool in the future though. I have no doubt about this ability coming soon.

Yeah, I believe all it requires it editing of a few DLL files. It won't take much to create a simple tool to do that.
