    Is there a way to custom resize metro cards?


    It was hard to describe my problem concisely in the title... I am sorry if it is misleading.

    I know how to right-click>resize, but I installed google drive (I might actually die without it), and whent to resize it, but I only have small and medium to choose from. I would like "large" or "wide" if possible. Any ideas?

    It IS a handy little application seeing as Start Screen customization is so restricted!

    All kudos go to the developers of OblyTile!
