Live Tiles Anywhere is available as an app from the Microsoft Store and has one dedicated function – add the square-shaped tiles that contain a picture or a number to the start menu. Besides, it can also show notifications previews from apps.


With Live Tiles Anywhere you can:

• Create custom Live Tiles and add pin them on the Start Menu, on your Desktop as an icon or create a floating widget. All four sizes are supported!

• The "Live" aspect of the Live Tiles is present both on the Start Menu tiles and for the widgets on Desktop. All apps with a Live Tile are supported, both on Windows 10 and Windows 11.

• No live tile support for some apps? Live Tiles Anywhere can use the toast notifications from the action / notification center.

• Customize many aspects of the tile, including images, background and text color, branding and more.

• Supports Desktop win32 apps, UWP apps, links, commands and other protocols.

• LTA will automatically find installed apps, including games from Steam and Epic Games launcher.

• A central hub is available, where you can manage all the tiles you've created, added and customized.

• No changes will be made on system files and no special procedures or patches are required.

• Updated Fluent Design interface, easy to use, with light or dark theme supported.

• Multi-language support available. English and Italian languages are supported in this version.

The app is available for free, without external ads and no in-app purchases.

You can get it from Microsoft Store here.

I liked the fully customisable tile editor. I also liked the ability to create widgets and rounded edges with any app or program.
The downside for me was that the Window's "show desktop" button hid the widget, meaning this button was not going to be a quick way to access the widget(s).
