Change size Windows 8 app tiles

While I am deciding whether to do the Windows 8.1 upgrade I have been redesigning my Metro start screen. One of the things which isn’t obvious is that if it is not a Windows 8 app, you cannot change the size of the tile. Windows 8 start screen is really colourful and interesting to watch! I like the movement. It also tends to intuitively gather like app tiles together when you download them. I have resized the ones I can and just left the others as small tiles. I have also cleared away and unpinned the tiles I don’t need on my start screen. I tend to go to my desktop first and then to the start screen when I want my favourite programmes. I am using Win 8 on a desktop computer and not a device.metro desktop As for the upgrade, there is a very good review of it here at Gizmodo. It needs about 10 to 15 GB of space to install and about an hour. That’s why I am thinking about it. I won’t have to pay for it but it is a massive update and I need to be sure it’s worth the time and effort since I really like how my Windows 8 computer is running and how it looks.
