    I was trying to figure out why the Start screen looked odd--and then I noticed the app icons in the tiles are about 1/3 the size they were in Windows 8, so you've got (for example), a tiny W for Word in Windows 10 vs a more visible W in Windows 8.1. Only appears to apply to desktop apps, not store apps (e.g., Google, Adobe Reader Touch). Anyone else notice this?

    Can I get the number of voicemails to show up on a tile?

    Is there a way to get the number of voicemails that I have to either show up on the phone tile (much like the missed calls do) or even on a seperate tile. I often seem to miss the brief notification and the tiny icon at the bottom of the phone screen is
    hard to read.

    Surface Pro 3 desktop toolbar "resolution:" fix??

    I was playing Sims 3. Usually when I play, my display changes but then goes back to what I had it set at. Today, I decided to try and display my Pro screen on a TV I recently purchased over wireless while playing Sims. Something weird happened and my screen
    kept blinking between a black screen and my Desktop (not the Tile one). I restarted my computer in hopes of rectifying the situation - but my resolution was changed, black bars on either side of the screen. I put on my recommended setting and that seemed to
    fix my Start Tiles page, but when I went back to my desktop, all the icons were super small. I switched the shortcut size for my desktop, but my Toolbar icons are still very tiny. Is there a way to fix this?

    Tiny icons in Start screen tiles

    Yep, they're working on it. The icons were larger but very fuzzy in 10.0.122 (or 10.0.074) so they reverted to being clear and tiny in 10.0.130

    I think I prefer them the size they are now.
