    How to Turn Live Tiles On or Off for Apps on Start in Windows 10


    A tile is a modern apps representation on the Start screen in Windows 10, and can be either static or live.

    Windows 10 includes a new 3D animation for live tiles, and allows you to turn live tiles on or off for your apps pinned to Start.

    A static tile displays the default content, which is generally just a full-tile logo image for the app.

    Live tiles can show updates from your friends, new email, app notifications, and the next appointment on your calendar at a glance, even without opening an app. And because everyone who uses the PC can sign in with their own Microsoft account, each person can personalize their own tiles, colors, and backgrounds.

    For more information about live tiles, see: Tiles - UWP app developer | Microsoft Docs

    This tutorial will show you how to turn a live tile on or off for each app pinned to Start for your account in Windows 10.

  2. Turning Off All Apps List on Start Menu

    Is there a way to turn off the all apps list on Windows 10 start menu? I am referring to the list which appears to the left of the live tiles. Ideally I would like my start menu to be ONLY live tiles. Is this possible?

    live tile is not updating

    I solved my live tile problem by opening every single app and turning off the live tile feature within the app for the apps that I don't place on the start screen. Now the live tiles on the start screen are working again.

    Turn On or Off Live Tiles for Apps on Start in Windows 10

    And now there's a quest in Build 14332 wanting me to "turn off live tiles" which I took to mean turn 'em all off at once, but not to be. *Sad

    So far, the only way to do that is one-by-one, which I generally do when I clean install, but it's a pain in the tookus. They're all there waiting to be turned off. *Sad

    Hello Wynona,

    I'll look and see if I may be able to find a way to disable live tiles, and will post back if found. *Smile
