Try this one.

Nope, I mean once you pin to start, instead of an ugly icon be able to right click it and add a custom tile image.

that would actually be a rather cool option to have.

That would be cool

Posted in winforum by a 1-post member, if it is real, then notice it's changed to "Windows 8.1 Milestone Preview".

Interesting screenshot.  Obviously not the official preview build since the official won't say Microsoft Confidential all over it.

 

I'm gonna guess they will jump to build 9450 for the official Milestone Preview build.

Don't think there are any other changes coming that we don't know about already.   BUILD is very close now so if there was anything else we haven't seen yet due to a leak of some sort then I believe what we see now is what we're going to get.  Not that I'm complaining really, so far 8.1 seems to be a very solid update overall.  I'd like to see some sort of visual top corner "charms button" as a option though.  I think having a button option will help, specially those who are running on multiple monitor setups that still have problems with the charms bar.  Having a visible thing to click on solves that issue for them and it will help those new to the UI to also get used to it that way first.

Now, direct from MS......so no more worries or arguments for installing windows 8.1 without windows 8 pre-installed. :)

I have posted some extracts from win8.1 preview Q & A; but since it consists of (presently) MS confi stuffs, I don't know if it violates Neowin regulations. :)

But you still lose everything when you upgrade Win8 to 8.1 beta and then from beta to RTM..... or did they now change that ?

Any ideas about Windows Title Font color option? It is black by default so you can't see Winodws Title while using Black Windows themes.
