Hi.
Is there anyway making the tiles size somewhat smaller? So that I can have it into many groups without taking so much space on the screen.
Thanks in advance.

Not in DP. But in CP there will be zoom feature for the start menu, but unfortunately you can't change the size of the tiles.

To Shawn.
Its only a minor issue I am wanting to ask you thru other thread not as a thread starter. But, thank you for the help.

That is too bad (to me at least). I just come to an idea, it's OK for the gadgets remain sized as it is, that's what the gadget for. But for the shortcut better be given an option for sizing down. It will be interesting to have groups of tiles (shortcuts). It has meet all esthetic and functional values I think.

I'd wait for the Consumer Preview. The zoom out feature will be used to organize tiles in a glance. There MAY be potential that Microsoft allows custom DPI for Start Tiles. As of now, you can't, but there goes to say you can use some geometric skill and fit a bunch of tiles in one screen! :D

That is what I need to find out later. As normal user we have our wild imagination, I do believe it applies to Microsoft development staffs.

Mid February fever it is now apparent I guess. ;)
