    Give Office 2016 Start Menu Tiles Colored Backgrounds


    After upgrading to Office 2016, I have noticed that the start menu tiles lost their colorful backgrounds and were reverted back to the accent color. Here is how to fix that so the tiles have colored backgrounds.

    This guide shows you go to go from this:
    Attachment 113103
    To this:
    Attachment 113105

    Step 1
    Navigate to your Start Menu folder
    Typically can be found at: "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs"

    Step 2
    Find the shortcut for one of the Office suite apps and rename it to anything you want.

    Step 3
    Reopen the Start Menu, the page will refresh and the tile will now be colored (assuming you have pinned it on the front page)

    Step 4 (Optional)
    Rename the shortcut back to its original name, the tile will still remain colored.

    Enjoy *Wink

    start menu tile colors


    I've scanned to find information on changing the tile colors and found nothing. Is there a way to change the start menu tile colors so they're not the same? Windows 8.1 had different color tiles but Windows 10 has most of them the same.
    Thanks

    Different color of tiles in the start menu.

    Control the color of individual start menu tiles

    In Windows 10, the start menu tiles all have the same background color, determined by the color theme you choose.

    However, the Microsoft Office tiles (e.g. Excel, Word) each have different colors - Word is blue, Excel is green, etc.

    Is there any way to set individual colors on other tiles? E.g. could I set Visual Studio to be purple and Evernote to be green?

    To be clear, I don't want to control the overall theme - e.g. I don't want all tiles to be green instead of grey - I want to control the tile colors individually.
