This question already has an answer here:

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.

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:


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
