Start Screen Animations Tweaker is based on my recent research about the Start Screen animations.
With Start Screen Animations Tweaker you will able:
  • to change behavior of the user name text slide animation.
  • to change behavior of the user picture slide animation.
  • to change behavior of Tiles slide animation. It has two options:
  • 1. left-to-right animation. Tiles will fly from the "far" left corner into the screen. This reminds me effects from the Solitaire windows game.
  • 2. right-to-left animation controls the right position from where Tiles will slide to their regular positions
  • to enable animations for every time you visit the Start screen in Windows 8, not only at login.

Start Screen Animations Tweaker is freeware and portable application which does not require to be installed and works with both x86 and x64 editions of Windows 8.

Any chance you could make an app that lets you choose different start screen colours than the default ones ?

MS picked puke colours

Grand update is here.

Start Screen Animations Tweaker features the Parallax effect support.

There is a difference in the visual position of Start Screen’s tiles and the Start Screen’s background. It’s called the Parallax effect. You see it in action every time you scroll your Start Screen: tiles scroll is faster than the background image scroll.

Why it is hidden setting again - i have no idea

Under the hood

Its just one setting in registry. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VisualEffects\Accent
You can create the 32bit DWORD parameter named “parallax“. It does not exists by default, and Windows 8 considers it equal to five.

I have decribed that parameter in the following post.

First of all, congratz for your app.

One question: I used your app to change the animation in my start screen. I really want to revert be like the default animation shift when the windows start (What I mean Windows Shift animation like in 00:30 of this video ---> http://youtu.be/Ke9rrf4UHLE?t ). I clicked the button "Reset to defaults" in your application but didn't change anything. Every time I'm booting my pc doesn't doing this animation shift. 

 

If you know something to fix it please reply. :)

 

Regards

 

(BTW sorry for my Enlgish)

 

 

------------

 

 

EDIT

 

I found the way for anyone who wants to revert the start menu animation to defaults:

 

1. Press "WIN+R" key combination to launch RUN dialog box then type regedit.

2. Move to this key destination:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\Grid

 

3. Delete the following entries:

Launcher_SessionLoginAnimation_OnShow

Launcher_SessionLogin_Icon_Offset

Launcher_SessionLogin_IconText_Offset

Launcher_SessionLogin_IndividualTower_Offset

Launcher_SessionLogin_Tower_Offset100

 

And everything should be in defaults. This is how it worked to me. The program should remove the above entries and not set the values to 0 when you press the "Reset to defaults" button in the app.

 

I hope I helped somehow....

I thought it already remove them when you click on "restore defaults" button.

I will check it once again.

Thanks for the report
