Is it possible to have one background colour for the desktops app i pin to the start screen? at the moment for the office apps i have red, green, purple, blue, orange and so on. In Windows 8 all the desktop apps had a nice blue background, is it possible to change the colours?

Not sure that's possible without a third party app. In Windows 8.1 the desktop app tiles take their color from the icon much like the glow effect in the taskbar.
