Insight In To Windows 8 Metro Tiles

The tiles on the Start Screen in Windows 8 are all about the visual impact on the user and making things easier on mobile devices. However, they can also be extremely useful for desktop users who have never used anything like it before. Microsoft recently made a blog post about it, detailing how the whole system works for the betterment of user experience.

Visual cue is one of the greatest things for the Metro. Users will not only see the graphics on the Metro tiles but also their bold colors. Forming color and spatial associations will help users to spot things faster.

The self-updating nature of the tile has already been discussed before but it bears repeating that they will help you stay connected and updated without actually running full apps.

Apps can actually schedule updates and publish information via push notifications. It can also update tiles in real time and share data. Tiles can be used to drag and drop items which will then be intelligently opened in the respective app.

So if you have an photo that you really like, you can drag it from your photo app and drop it on to a social network tile that will then open up the connected social networking app that starts uploading the photo to a photo host and gives you options to share your photo on multiple social networks. All of that can happen with one swift motion.

Also, there’s the Semantic Zoom — this is where you can zoom out of the Start Screen to only see clumps of tiles with just identifying icons on them. This helps you quickly move between a large collections and switch between groups of tiles really fast. So overall, desktops users are all set to have a great Windows 8 experience as well.

How to Create an Invisible Shortcut on Windows Desktop
It is quite easy to create any desktop shortcut of the Windows operating system invisible. The functionality of the hidden icon will not suffer: you will be able to click it, run applications, invoke the context menu and perform any other usual operations.
In this article we will deal with the Firefox shortcut for the sake of example. This shortcut is rather beautiful, but we have to choose something.
To do this, we do the following simple actions.
1. Go to shortcut properties and change the icon associated with it to transparent. It is usually included into the Shell32.dll library located in the System32 folder. If there is no transparent icon, it can be easily found in the Internet using the “blank.ico” keyword.
2. Press apply and close the settings window.
3. Rename the shortcut to get rid of its name. It is impossible to fill the name with usual spaces, but we can use non-breaking space. To do this, type 0160 on your numpad holding the Alt key (make sure that you have Num Lock turned on), then press Enter and see the following:
4. All we have is to remove the arrow from the partially hidden icon (you probably won’t need to do this in Windows XP). To do this, open the registry editor ("Start -> Run -> regedit.exe"), find the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Classes\ lnkfile branch and delete the IsShortcut parameter. Then restart your system to get the following result:
Great, isn’t it? First, now nothing prevents you from seeing the background picture. Second, it’s spectacular: you can like a magician click in the predefined areas of the desktop and launch applications, surprising your friends or colleagues. Finally, if you have Windows XP installed, you can hide directories from curious users.
