windows 8 Start Screen Custom Background

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Good morning all!

I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the Windows 8 Start Menu background to a custom image without using that iffy Chinese program (www.win8china.com).

For the record: I have nothing against the Chinese, I just don't know about the program.

Thanks for any and all help!
