Default [Q] Pinning A Website And Changing The Tile?

When you pin a website it takes a snapshot of that page, that day, that minute and uses that as the tile. Is there any way to change that, short of actually grabbing the application, if it has one, for that website?

The update doesnt happen automatically. Even I expected it to update when I launch it using that tile.

I am not sure what you mean by grabbing that application. Can you explain it a bit?

When you click Pin to Start, it will take a screenshot of the page you are on. You can zoom in to something that looks good and maybe get something that looks decent. It takes it from the top half of the display screen

Re-pin the site. It should re-generate the tile image. You may need to unpin it first.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
