    Graphical tile glitch on Windows 8.1 (tiles get cropped)


    Hello,

    I'm new to the forums, I post this because I get a glitch where tiles get cropped whenever I resize or move one. I've left an image of the problem as an attachment. This only happens with tiles on the borders.

    What can be causing this, and how may I fix it? Any help is very appreciated.

    Thanks

    The tiles in the 1st column take too much space vertically so windows scrolls all the tiles down. That's what's happening.

    Quick solution : drag the big weather tile and drop it on the right (a column of its own). It should work properl now.

    It's not only vertically, but also horizontally. And moving the weather tile did not work either D:

    I see many tile rows from top to bottom...

    Try reducing the number of tile rows:

    I have 1080p resolution, and sincerely I don't think I feel comfortable with another. I don't like scaling all down. And with that resolution I don't find it necessary to reduce. I bought a big screen for a reason.

    I still don't see why they get cropped but it does happen only on the edges.
