    So I got those miserable little icons there by sending shortcuts for the drives to the desktop, renaming and just changing the normal icon to the ones I made.

    As near as I can tell I can only get larger icons in the start menu by copying the xml &png, so if I can't paste them there then perhaps I'm stuck with the tiny ones?

    The problem is these are drive and not programs, files, or folder, where you can put the XML and PNG next to them. I tried creating a shortcut(was able to customize the shortcut icon) and placing the shortcut icon in a folder with the tile pack, but whenever pind to start, it just used the icon and not the tile pack.

    I even tried placing the folder containing shortcut, XML, and PNG directly in:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    C:\Users\Cliff S\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

    But neither worked.
    No way to paste something in This PC; that's not a folder.

    Disk drives don't work with the XML method.
    Too bad.

    It seems that WinTiler app is able to pin custom disk drives.

    But the custom tiles require permission to open with someting called Tiler (the app?)... I still didn't got that part going.
    This was all pretty good with the trial the app the full version is about 1euro in the Store.

icon size
The 3 default icon sizes still too large to my liking. Can reduce size further by pressing Control and turning the mouse wheel. After restart, however, they are back to Large and the arrangement on the desktop all mixed up. Who can help ??
