  1. Need to change tile size and icon on Windows 10 start menu.


    I need to change the size of a tile on the Start Menu in Windows 10. The right click option only offers "small and medium" not the large option. Secondly, I would like to be able to change the picture on each specific tile so I can better personalise it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Start menu tiles for Office have 2 styles; how do you control which you get on Windows 10?

    Thank you for posting this solution. It was annoying me how one computer had it colored and the other didn't. Your solution worked great!

  3. Start menu tiles for Office have 2 styles; how do you control which you get on Windows 10?

    I found a way to fix this problem. As detailed at
    http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/6-ways-hack-customize-windows-10-start-menu/


    Right-click the tile, select Open file location, then ... right click the file, select
    Properties, in the Shortcut tab click Change Icon…, and select a given icon or
    Browse… for an alternative one on your computer.

    You don't even need to change the icon image. you can just re-select the current one. The colored background appears in the tile and the icon image size increases to the size it should be.

    I still don't know why the tile images were messed up in the first place, but this provides a way of fixing the problem.
