    I have a HTC Radar and I just updated it to Windows 7.8.
    It looks cool and all, but now all I see is a blob of Yellow.
    Is there a way to change individual tile colors? I'm thinking just the main ones like the Internet, Phone, Messaging, People, Settings, Marketplace, Maps, Etc.

    Is there an app that can do this? Like you customize it and then Pin to Start and it does the same function as the default tiles but is just a different color? I tried Wiztiles but like if I made an Internet tile, it would always go to the default URL set for it, instead of going to whatever the last webpage you were on.

    Or does my phone need to be unlocked to do what I want?

    Thanks

    It amazes me the stupidity of some people. Reading is one thing. Comprehending is another.

    He clearly stated "Is there a way to change individual tile colors?"

    The answer is NO. You can only change the accent color across the entire system, not individual tiles.

    Would seem like a pretty simple thing to implement you would think.

    I'd be happy with black tiles for the light theme and white for the dark.

    Go to Ease of Access and toggle High Contrast. That should get you at least close to what you're wanting. 8)
