Windows 8 Tip: Changing the tile size of Metro apps

In Windows 8, you can personalize the start screen the way you want. You can re-arrange the tiles, make them smaller and larger too.

In this post, I will give a step-by-step guide about How you can change the size of the tiles of the metro apps.

To change the tile size of any metro app, first right click on that metro app. Then a bar will pop out from the bottom of the screen, which will have a few options.

One of the option will be “Small”(If the tile size is larger) or “Large”(If the tile size is smaller). Just select that option to make the small tile larger or vice-versa.

You can watch this video to know more about it.

    What I want to be able to do is change the color of all the tiles. Too many different bright colors from all the different apps all over the screen.
