For players trying to organize their screens and where they click, marking tiles can be the critical difference between the success and failure of completing certain high-level activities.
Although the act of marking tiles can be controversial to some, it has proven to be an easy way to set on-screen reminders for yourself and make certain combat sequences less complicated. Originally something that could only be performed on 3rd party clients, even the official clients have added this feature.

How to Mark Tiles in Old School RuneScape
Marking tiles is very simple and can be done on both the main client and 3rd party clients.
Marking tiles can be done by holding the shift key while right-clicking on a title. Here you will see an option to Mark a tile, allowing you to do so!
Beyond the vanilla client, you will only have the option to mark them.
However, if you are using other recognized clients (i.e. RuneLite) you will also see options to recolor and label tiles to whatever you would like.
The colour menu is based on hex values, so you can fine-tune the colors to exactly what you want!
Tile markers can also be downloaded and applied to your RuneLite client, allowing players to share markers with each other.
This is handy for newer players who are trying to learn a Raid or difficult boss but aren’t sure exactly where to step to set their own markers.
