    Sounds like it is more trouble than it is worth.

    The default non-metro tiles cannot be made bigger, I agree with David.

    You can however try to create larger custom icons using OblyTile.

    I've just posted a new thread here:
    Custom Tiles (for Desktop Apps)

    That enables you to use a new range of icons just like an actual app would do.

    Sorry about that.

    You mean in File Explorer: that cannot be changed. All are pre-defined sizes.
