    Find and press the Cool Tiles tile to open the application.
    We can see the tile near the bottom of the screen on this device. It has a purple background with a phone and different colored tiles inside of it in the middle. If the Cool Tiles tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu.

    The first thing we should do before making it transparent is choose the application we want to make the tile for.
    We can do that by pressing the white cog in a white circle at the bottom of the phone. It says the word "app" underneath of it.

    We are now ready to pin the tile to our home screen, which we can do by pressing the white pin icon at the bottom left-hand side of the screen.
    It says the word "pin" underneath of it.

    Now we can see the YouTube tile at the bottom of the screen.
    We can also see it's not transparent, which might raise some questions. The thing is, the tile will not be transparent if there's no background image on the home screen. Even though we have selected this tile to be transparent, it's not going to be until we make some other changes. We will show you how to do that in another video which can be found on the VisiHow site.
