    How can I change the color of the live tiles so I can use a light colored background?

    Settings > Personalization > Colors

    Then you can adjust the transparency on Settings > Personalization > Start

    That only changes the accent color and the background of the live tiles.

    I should clarify that I'd like to keep the background transparent while changing the live tiles text color to allow the use of a lighter background.

    Not possible to change text color.

    Sadly it isn't possible. Though you can put a less transparent Dark color tile

    Thank you for all the replies.

    My takeaway is that if anyone wants to use fully transparent live tiles they are restricted to using darker backgrounds.
    Maybe one day that will change.

    i don't think so, as I've tried other themes, and the text colour didn't chg.
    at the moment, the os doesn't support it.
    windowd feedback, to add that feature.

    also, does anyone know what that start/lockscreen app is, in the pic?

    thx
