Thumbs up
Just wanted to pop in and give my thanks. I l really enjoy this app!

And hopefully you can support the wide tiles eventually. But honestly can't complain, love the program. Don't understand why MS didn't implement this kind of option at the start!

Hey that's just awesome. Thank you so much!!
But you should tell me earlier that your program has a manager with pre-set tiles in the Quick List section...

Anyway you may also like to add this to the Quick List
Code:
All apps/Search
C:\Windows\explorer.exe shell:::{2559a1f8-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}
That will save people from right clicking while on the start menu.

Well, the most plausible is to keep the Desktop Applications "different" from Windows Store Apps, to easily identify those, in part is a good thing, but, they would have put this based on the User choice.

Will be done with next version (no eta)

Hello

To create tiles on standard users follow those steps:

1)Create a folder called OblyTile inside the Program Files folder.
2)Set full control on the OblyTile folder (search on google how to do it)
3)Enjoy

Could you make it so that it takes us to All Apps without search? I can't find a way to do it without search.

Also could you implement a way to export settings, so If I were to re-install or get a new pc I could one-click restore the shortcuts Microsoft forgot about.

Thanks for this great app!

+1 for exporting tiles!
Maybe something like a zip file with .obly as ending where all the images and .lnks and .vbss are stored.

It may be very tough though. The shortcut for all apps with search was accidentally discovered by some guys playing with the Windows+X menu. Unless we can discover the correct shortcut by luck or try out the correct code with brute force, there's no way to make a shortcut to all apps without search.

First of all thanks for the great app.

Was just wondering if its possible to add a random background colour tick box?

Most of the tiles I've made use a full size PNG background but when I zoom out they're typically all blue backgrounds, I can obviously change it each time but was hoping it might be easy to implement.

Cheers

Dale
