    When I change my theme color, a few of the tiles on the start screen do not change. They stay at the last color I used. How can I update those tiles so the color changes to the new color? My Metro Radio and my music tile did not change. I can delete the tile and pin it back, but there must me an easier way.

    Just tap the tile and open it, then go back to the Start screen. That's what I always do. Third party apps might not notice the chance until a background agent occurs.

    I tried that and it didn't work. I also rebooted the phone.

    Music tile will stay green and so will games tile. They don't change colour. Metro radio probably needs the developer to update it.

    Some tiles don't change colors ever, and some change but take a while. Just give it a day or so if it's not changing. I've really never felt the need to reinstall an app because its tile color didn't change immediately.
