Windows 10: Why is it that some apps cannot have a big start menu tile?

    Why is it that some apps cannot have a big start menu tile?


    Why is it that some programs (like Edge, which I don't use), can have a bigger tile, on the start menu, and others (like Firefox, which I use) don't?

    thnx

    It can have a bigger title because it is a Metro App.

    ( Googled but still not sure what a Metro App is and why it would be undoable to have a bigger FireFox tile... )

    The apps available from the Store were once referred to as "Metro" apps, a term related to the interface introduced with Windows 8.

    ( still don't see why the bloody firefox tile cannot be twice as big, but I'm starting to give up on reason... )
