    Why do Win32 apps not have these tile sizes while UWP does:WideLargeIt just doesn't really make sense that Win32 apps don't have those tile sizes. It would be really useful if/when it is added.

    i changed type size, , but file explorer doesn't

    File Explorer is a Win32 application and unlike Modern UWP applications Win32 applications have issues when you adjust font size. I suggest you to put the font size back to 100% and increase Windows scaling to 125%. in Display under Settings.

    Why are there less tile sizes in Win32 than UWP?

    Differentiate UWP apps from win32/64 software.

    Hi Martin

    Typically a Win32/64bit application will have a standard menu system (File, edit, tools . . etc)

    Typically, a UWP app will have 3 dots menu at the top right or left where all options are accessible from

    The only conclusive way to know is to open the App, then open Task Manager, and choose the processes tab on Task Manager.

    Find the application in the list of running processes, right click and choose 'Open File Location

    If the file location is the WindowsApps folder in Program Files, or Windows 10 refuses to open the folder, then it is a UWP App, because Win32 apps are stored in their own folder in Program Files (x86) and 64bit applications are stored in their own folder in
    Program Files . . .
