Do you mean beyond the options that are included in there already? There are something like a dozen different color combos and patterns that you can use in the personalize options.

Looks like my issue with the touch keyboard was passed up a few pages back... No one else has this issue with the touch keyboard icon always popping back up after turning it off?

Looks like some others are seeing it happen as well... here

I'm guessing its a hardware glitch where windows thinks it might have found some kind of touch sensor. Perhaps my fingerprint reader which isn't showing up as a biometric device as it should.

Well i know about the color options you can change, like the ones it gives you to choose from when you first install. But i was wondering if there was a way to just change the background image within the metro UI, not the colors per say. But im at work and havent looked lately, so i might have just overlooked it.

No way that I know of to change from the default choices of Metro backgrounds. Sure there will be plenty of customization options developed by third parties down the road...

There seems to be Apps conflicting with each other volume wise. When running the Music App the volume is normal but as soon as I Alt + Tab it goes down to 10% until I exit Steam completely. This may be the same issue I'm having with Skype (not tested yet) I'm hoping Microsoft fixes this issue soon. For now if anyone is having the same issue try exiting out of running programs and apps. =/

Has there been any progress on the random freezes that a lot of people are getting? Mine started doing it the other day, after a few days of no problems. Now, W8 locks up after about an hour of use, regardless of what I'm doing.

I've tried all the RP fixes, installed and re-installed motherboard and video card drivers. Updated my BIOS.... nothing works.

It's doubly odd because, like I said, W8 worked perfectly fine for like a week. It was working fine all day one day and then the next day, it's bugged up. And I didn't make any system changes between the period of it working and then not.

I mentioned freezing issues earlier when running multiple metro apps. I've gotten one BSOD but the rest have just been total freezes requiring hard shut down. Can't entirely eliminate my OC as a problem as I haven't stress tested in Win8 yet but it is way lower than my 5GHz Win7 OC...

Has there been any issues with Metro Apps not launching? I have a few store apps that just show the launch screen then immediately crash and fail to launch. :/ (Skype and Xbox Companion)

I'm not using any metro apps. And I reset my OCs on everything. The issue remains.

I don't mean metro apps like you get at the app store. I'm talking about any program launched from the start screen. For me it can be just opening GPU-z, FRAPS, and a game at the same time...
