Posted March 05, 2018 09:06:15 A lot of users want to avoid using Windows 10’s built-in tiles, but they need a way to make them work.
There’s a free utility that lets you create custom wall tiles using the Windows 10 tiles, and it’s not as clean or intuitive as other options.
Here’s how to do it. 1.
Open a new command prompt 2.
Find the Command Prompt window and hit Enter 3.
Type in the following command, pressing Enter after it: tiles create-walltile-1 The first argument, “Tile Name,” will tell you which tile to create.
In the command prompt, type the following commands: tiles update-store-install-from-windows10-tags-wall-tiles-2-2 5.
In a window that shows up, you’ll see the following.
If you want to create two wall tiles, press enter to create both.
If neither of those are selected, you can choose one.
When you’re done, you should see the new tiles.
If there are any missing tiles, just right-click on one and choose “Remove from Favorites.”
You can also add a new tile by selecting it and choosing “Add Tile.”
When done, save your changes by hitting Save and then closing the Command Panel.
If the tiles aren’t showing up in the tiles list, that’s because there’s an issue with your system.
If that happens, it could be an issue affecting your system’s settings.
If it’s a problem affecting Windows 10 itself, you might want to make sure that the tile update-installation-tags option is disabled in the system settings.
For example, if you’re on a Mac, the system might not have the correct version of the Windows tile update installer installed.
To check, open a terminal and run the following: sudo tiles update install-tags If you see the “Tiles updated successfully” message, your tile update has successfully installed.
If your system doesn’t have the update-tags version installed, try updating the system again with the following instructions.
If all goes well, you’re ready to go.
For Windows 10 users, the update will create two new tiles, one for each of the tiles you created.
For non-Windows users, there’s a way around this, too.
When installing Windows 10 on a system that has the Windows update installed, you won’t see the old version of your tile.
Instead, you will see the Windows version.
So, you don’t have to install the new tile if you already have it installed.
