Windows Phone: change the size of icons

Windows Phone 8 allows a great personalization of the home screen, more malleable than on an iPhone or an Android smartphone. Like Windows 8, it is possible to choose the size of the icons between small square, medium square and large rectangle which is the full width of the screen.

Change the size of icons on the home screen

1. On the home screen, press and hold an icon, it will be highlighted and two buttons appear on the right:
– the’pin to delete the icon (but we will find the program in the complete list)
– the arrow to change the size of the icon (that’s what interests us here)

2. Press the arrow to enlarge or reduce the size of the icon. The most used applications and those that use a dynamic thumbnail (photos, Facebook, etc.) will look much nicer with a big icon.
