Windows 8 Start Screen Customizer



Windows 8 Start Screen Customizer, es una herramienta para personalizar la Pantalla de Inicio de Windows 8/8.1.


  • Aplicación de imagen de fondo inmediata (el programa cambia el fondo y si desea puede cerrarlo).
  • Opción de recordar las modificaciones, es recomendable activar la opción “Iniciar junto a Windows 8”
  • Tres modos de aplicar:
    - Modo sencillo: Puede elegir una imagen en especial y elegir el área a utilizar para el fondo, y aplicar.

    - Modo Fondo de Escritorio: Con esta opción puede obtener la misma imagen del fondo de su escritorio como imagen de fondo de su Pantalla de Inicio. Además monitoriza los cambios que Windows realiza cuando se elige una secuencia de imágenes como fondo de escritorio.
    - Modo de secuencias: Permite elegir sus imágenes desde una carpeta en especial, y mostrar como fondo de la Pantalla de Inicio en intervalos elegidos.
  • Efecto de desenfoque Gausiano: aplica un desenfoque a la imagen de tal forma que se muestra sin robar la atención.
  • Permite reponer la imagen de fondo establecida por Windows 8 (quita nuestra imagen personalizada).
  • Accesos directos a la configuración de la pantalla de inicio, así como a la configuración de fondo de escritorio de Windows.
  • Permite modificar el nivel de transparencia de la Pantalla de Inicio, así como de los Tiles (aunque este último agrega oscurecimiento a la imagen de fondo).
  • Y además puede reducir el número de filas como se muestra los Tiles.
  • Ocultar en la bandeja de sistema (systray)


  • Las imágenes son estáticas, puesto que solamente sobrepone la imagen elegida sin afectar el rendimiento.

A tener en cuenta:

  • Requiere ejecutar esta herramienta cada vez que reinicie el explorador de Windows, es decir, cada vez que inicie Windows, lo cual se soluciona con la opción de ejecución junto a Windows.
  • Sólo funciona en Windows 8 RTM o superior, anteriores versiones como la Developer Preview, Customer Preview y otras no son compatibles.

  1. Tengo windows 8 pro con media center -- no me funciona

  2. working in my windows 8 Pro with Media Center
    That Great ! but heyy How do you change the taskbar like that ??

    1. I'm using Space Blueberries 4.8 by Neiio
      with UXStyle Core Unsigned Themes Windows service.

      and NetSpeedMonitor by Florian Gilles

  3. Hi - this is great, I would like to run the app for all my users as a start-up script, is that possible?

    1. It is possible, but not exactly from this tool (I will add that for next version).

      So... you can add an entry to RUN key in Windows' Registry (regedit.exe)
      Currently it saves the run at startup in
      Win8StartScreen = application executable full path

      You can manually add that entry to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead, and it will load for all your users.

  4. Love the idea. However it does not work, at lease for me in any mode. I am running Windows 8 Pro as well and am using the English version.

  5. Funciona de maravilla con Windows 8 Pro sin WMC 64bits.
    Ahora quisiera tener tu barra de inicio, la del escritorio clasico..
    Puedes compartirla?
    Y gracias por app.

  6. It works very well. Great job !
    I miss something. Can we set background's opacity to 0% and keep tiles' opacity to 100% ? If we can't, could you do it ?

  7. The only issue I have is when I'm using multiple monitors and my main monitor is smaller than my second monitor and then the background image on the Start screen (when I access Start from the second monitor) does not cover the whole screen. Otherwise great app.

  8. link didnt work because this: The user hosting this content is out of bandwidth.

    pls notify me if you change the download server

    1. I just uploaded to 4shared. Now you can download it.

WinXCorners — Hot Corners for Windows 10

WinXcorners version 1.0
Windows 10 x86/x64Notice: This version doesn't support multiple monitors
WinXcorners allows you to assign events to trigger on your main monitor corners, it activates when your mouse cursor hovers them, i.e. when you move your mouse cursor to your screen edges.
These are the options that you can select:
Show all windows, using Task view, the new Windows 10 feature. Show desktop Start Screen Saver, and Turn off monitorsAnd when you are going to play video games, it includes a toggle option that will disable it temporarily.

The application runs in the System Tray, by right clicking you can enable it to run when Windows starts (logon).

The application won't detect the screen edges if you are using (focused) an elevated privileged application. But you can always restart the application as administrator. If you have multiple monitors, it won't work in a secondary monitor. Download:
