Decor8 is a desktop customization application for Windows 8 and Windows RT that allows you to customize the Windows tiled interface.

Windows 8 comes with plenty of user customizations out of the box but for some odd reason, users couldn't change the background of the new "start" menu to anything other than what Microsoft has included. Decor8 changes that by allows users to easily select Microsoft's pictures or browse for other pictures on your computer.

Decor8 works well and has a beautifully simple interface. If you've used Windows 8's settings applications, you'll feel right at home. The sections in Decor8 are appropriately labeled and easy to understand. There are tons so customizations like blur, fade, color, and contrast. You can even set your desktop background to be the background of the tile interface.

These customizations should have been included with Windows 8 but weren't. Decor8 is fixes these issues but won't help Windows 8 feel any more familiar to the uninitiated. If you want to get the traditional Start menu back, check out this article.
