Tweaking Windows 8 Home Screen
Working with Start Screen Tweaker
Start Screen Tweaker is divided into three sections. The left section allows you to tweak the animation of your Username and image that appears at right hand top corner of home screen. If you slide towards larger value, there will be a delay in transition of the particular item. For instance, if you select a larger value for Username and a smaller value for the image then the image will appear first and then the Username.
The right section allows you to tweak tile appearance animations. While the slider denotes the same functionality as above, you can combine left to right and right to left to get various levels of animation. Check on the option to see the animation every time you visit home screen. Without checking this option you will only see the animation effect at Windows 8 Start up.
