Any way to set a custom tile size via the registry in Windows 8?

Now I don't mean I want to change the tile size of x tile to "small", "medium" or "large". I want to be able to set the exact size of a tile to whatever I damn well please.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The way you are implying, no you cannot. Sorry. Windows has defined tile sizes so the aesthetics are kept streamlined. Tiles are grid bound.

Also, this is a duplicate of the following:

How to customize the size of tiles in metro UI?

Is there any way to resize the tiles in MetroUI in Windows 8?

So there's no way to change in the system files the definitions windows has set for tile sizes or grid layout? – Gabardine Jul 12 '13 at 12:24
No. It is not possible. – cbabb Jul 12 '13 at 14:55
