Wink Just an idea
@Aqualunguer check here: walloftiles.net

And how about this? (talking about the Standard account) an option to locate the OblyTile folder in an specific location OR locate the 000000x folder IN the application folder, and as just one folder could be called "Icon"

Special thanks to Dakirby309 he also made the icons for the "Short List" shortcuts in OblyTile.

I know there was some links posted before to sites made for sharing tiles. Anyone have these links? I went back 20 pages and didn't see them, they're there but I kept missing them. They really should be put in the first post in the thread as they're related and useful links for OblyTile.

My idea is to move the OblyTile folder from Program Files to ProgramData, this must solve all the problems about accounts without administrator rights.
I'll see what i can do.

Really great program! Thank you developer.

I do have one request though. It seems like when I open an application it doesn't open the running instance. Is there any way to add this feature?

I think that's why the checkbox 'single instance' is there..

I don't really need this most of the time, but for example my Chrome tile alway opens a new tab in a new window.
But for chrome, the 'single instance' button isn't perfect either.
If you run chrome in desktop mode, it will just go back to desktop, but chances are high it's not the chrome window on top..

This is not the case with the program's original tile, that actually works perfect (opens same instance and brings to front).

Don't know if you can fix this? Would definitely be great

That's what I meant, thank you for explaining it better.

Single instance function is a bit difficult to handle when the program (for example google chrome) opens 3 processes with the same name, also, is difficult to determinate if the app is actually running on Dekstop mode or Immersive, but should not be so hard to fix the single instance function to work with chrome.

I'll see if what i can do to fix the problem

Thanks for the feedback!
