Windows 10: Start Page Tile Icon Question?. Solved

    Start Page Tile Icon Question?.

    Hi, I was adding a new shortcut and rearranging things on my start page tiles and somehow got the new tile icon for handbrake into the existing one for Control Panel. This resulted in two smaller icons in the same tile. I fiddled about and got Handbrake into its own tile but the Control Panel one although now in its own tile the icon remains at the smaller size. I have tried resizing it by right clicking etc but this only alters the tile size and not the icon. I did a google search but only found advice on the tiles. I know I must be missing something simple here as iirc I did a similar thing a couple of years ago but resolved it myself that time but cannot remember how. Any solutions/help offered are much appreciated.

    Click on the Control Panel tile and it should open up in another tile, then drag the Control Panel Icon out into a blank tile space.

    Hello saltyseadog,

    These would be live folders on Start, and are created when you drag and drop tiles on top of each other.

    In addition to what graystreet posted above, the tutorial below can give you some more info about this.
