    Changing the "Tiles" icon size in "Default Folder View"


    I was wondering if there was a way to change the size of "tiles" in Windows 10? Not the start menu tiles but the tiles that are displayed under the "View" option for files and folders. I'd only want to be doing this specifically for the "My PC" folder in file explorer as I have it setup to open up there as it's default when I want to view all my storage drives. I typically have my files and folders set to default viewing somewhere between large and extra large and the tile view keeps the small HDD icons. Sorry if this question is somewhat confusing. Google had a hard enough time as it is regardless of how I worded it.


    I'm currently using a windows preview build but my version should be displayed under my profile picture. If not its:

    Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.84)

    :)

  2. Files & Folders View as medium or large Icons

    To assist you better, we would suggest that you try to follow the steps below:

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Once you are viewing a folder, right click an empty space within the File Explorer window and select View from the dialogue menu, then choose Large or any icon you wanted to use. Alternatively, you can use the following shortcut keys on the keyboard to
      change your View settings:
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 1 Extra Large
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 2 Large icons
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 3 Medium Icons
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 4 Small Icons
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 5 List
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 6 Details
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 7 Tiles
    • CTRL + SHIFT + 8 Content
    3. Once you have the view set, you can make it the default view for

    every folder.

    4. Click Apply, then click OK.

    Update us on the result.
