Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing live tiles, part of Learning Windows 8.
It doesn't take very long working with Windows 8 to realize that you're going to …spend a fair amount of time interacting with the tiles that appear on the Start Screen. …In many respects you might think of the tiles as simply being launch pads for the …applications that you're going to use within Windows 8. …But they can also be much more than that. To begin with, many of the tiles that …you'll find on the Start Screen are capable of being Live Tiles. …Now I've turned off all of the Live Tiles at the moment to show you a rare scene …within Windows 8 and that is a situation where nothing is being updated dynamically.…
But we can change that very quickly and easily simply by adjusting the settings …for our tiles. I'll go ahead, for example, and right …click on the weather application. If I was using a touch device I could …also swipe down on that tile, and that will bring up a set of controls on the …options bar down at the bottom of the screen. …And from there I can choose the Turn Live Tile On option. …
