How to get a Windows Phone style with Smart Launcher

Are you looking to revamp your smartphone's home screen into a modern and stylish layout like the one shown above? Here's a straightforward guide to help you achieve this appealing design on your device.

1. Disable Rounded Widget Corners

Start by turning off the rounded corners for a sharp, clean look:

  • Go to Preferences.
  • Navigate to Global Appearance.
  • Select Widget and disable Rounded Widget Corners.

2. Adjust Grid Properties

Customize the layout to align the icons evenly:

  • Within Global Appearance, find Grid Properties.
  • Set the column number to balance the vertical space between icons with the horizontal spacing.
  • Adjust the icon size to its maximum for better visibility and impact.

3. Apply a Dark Wallpaper

A dark background will make your icons pop:

  • Use a pitch black wallpaper for maximum contrast. For example, you can use the one here.

4. Download and Apply an Icon Pack

Give your icons a uniform and stylish look:

  • Download the icon pack from Icon Pack Studio using this link: Metro Icon Pack.
  • Apply it to integrate smoothly with your home screen layout.

5. Customize Tile Color (Optional)

For a monochrome aesthetic, customize your tile color:

  • Use Icon Pack Studio to adjust all tiles to the same color as per your preference.

6. Share Your Setup

Once you’re satisfied with your setup:

  • Take a screenshot of your home screen.
  • Share the result with our team or on social media to showcase your new look.
