Windows 8 restricts users from customizing their start screens except by using a small number of background images provided with the OS. Furthermore, alternative color schemes are also very limited in number. The free-to-download Decor8 eliminates such restrictions and gives users freedom in personalizing their start screens using their own colors and images.

With this software, it is easy to add personal photos and other images. In fact, you can create slideshows containing multiple images. Background images can be randomized and displayed for custom durations, plus fades of background images are also possible. The software also comes supplied with 24 extra images.

Decor8 has the ability to auto-create color schemes to fit in with chosen background images. Alternatively, you can tweak the color schemes to your heart’s content.

New in latest version: New option to display a clock on Start screen; added support for translation of UI; fresh images bundled with program.

Operating System:  Windows 8

Limitations:  30-day trial
