    Desktop shortcuts to modern apps too small

    Does anyone create shortcuts on the desktop to any of the modern store apps? I know how to do it. Run ... Shell:appsFolder and then right click drag onto desktop to create the shortcut. I had a few of these setup for things like Amazon Prime and Xbox app. All looking good. Then after many months the icons (for only) the modern apps went funny. Really small within the icon box. I tried deleting them and then re dragging them. But they remain really tiny. I get that maybe modern store apps arenít really designed to be dragged as shortcuts and are very taskbar/start menu centric but it puzzles me why they looked good before and all of a sudden are now tiny. The Xbox x is barely visible within its green icon box for example. Anyone do this and/or notice the same?

    cheers, Wayne

    I would usually drag them from the Start Menu but, same diff!

    Gotta change the icon manually.

    Ok Thank you. Just weird because you until a few days ago they weren’t looking like that . Guess I’ll just eradicate those shortcuts going forwards
