Windows 8 has some great personalization aspect that can make the experience feel more tuned to you. While some (okay, most) do not like the Windows 8 Start screen, I’m actually a pretty big fan of it. Once you get the knack of navigating around it I find it to be just as intuitive as the Start button of Windows past. And while you can customize this with different color sets in the Settings>Personalize menu, it isn’t quite the same as having a personalized wallpaper on the Start screen just as you do on the desktop.
Buried in Windows 8.1 is a setting that will allow you to add your desktop wallpaper to the Windows 8 Start screen. To be fair it isn’t exactly easy to find but if you are looking for a more personalized Start screen, follow these easy steps to enable this feature.
This How To assumes that you have installed the latest updates to Windows 8.1 on your PC.
