Thanks for the response.
Yeah, now I see the drop shadows when enabling the static tile image, but, why can't it still be rounded (cropping the edges/borders of the image)? Isn't it posible to round the tile still? I don't know what technology and libraries are being used for start11, but in CSS as an example you can still have an image in an element and round the element, it just crops the borders of the image.
About the option to disable the static tile image, this is an example of how useful it can be:
Everything is the same color except Chrome that just loads another background color and doesnt change anything else, icon and text show as default.
Or Hyperx NGENUITY:
Has the same color but uses a bigger icon and removes text.
So if we had the option to just right click and select "Do not load static tile image for this tile" it would fix a lot of this issues.
I mean, start11 is about having more options than default windows.
