I like to pin my most used web sites on the start screen. But, sorry to say, not so many of the tiles looks great and they haven’t any functionality.

With this tool, Build a site tile, you can get help doing a great tile, that both scale with different tile sizes and have notifications.


What a change this does. My site stands out on the start screen.


And it’s live also. Here it shows the last blog post that I have published.



The easiest way to implement this change is to first upload the files from the package, that the tool created, to the root of your website.

It is five files:

  • browserconfig.xml
  • large.png
  • square.png
  • tiny.png
  • wide.png

And then add the following meta tag to your header:

<meta name=”application-name” content=”Dag König Blog” />
