Managing Win10 app icons in tablet mode

Posted on 2016-10-16

I have an app I have installed for my customers, running on Win10 tablets in desktop mode.  I am able to create a shortcut on the desktop, change the icon, and change the name.  All good.

But  now I need to run it instead in tablet mode on the tile screen.  I found that to get the app out on "the desktop" (I don't know what it is called in this mode) I have to "Pin to Start".  But once I get it out there, I see no way to change the icon.  How can this be done?

And, the icon no longer has a name under it like I have on the desktop.  I do see where I can "Name the Group", but that only puts a label above the icon.

How can I "control" this on the tile screen like I can do on the desktop, to make it look the way I want it?  TIA

So far as I know, you cannot do this in Tablet Mode, you need to go back to the Desktop to make changes. There is no "Properties" in Tablet mode (not on my Windows 10 machine).
