Windows 10 has a tile system which colored based on the theme you choose. However, there is only one color for every program on the tile menu.
But, is there any way to change tile color for certain programs?
Unfortunately, Windows 10 doesn’t provide such capability to change tile color individually, but a lightweight app named Windows Tile Color Changer could solve this problem.
I’m going to explain to you how to change tile color using that program. Check out the following tutorial!
