New live tiles
Microsoft added two new live tile sizes to the Start screen to help you fit more apps on the screen at once, called small and large.
The small tile looks identical to the smallest tiles on Windows Phone 8, with a tiny app icon and a colored background. The large tile is a large square the size of four-by-four small tiles.
The two sizes that were already available in Windows 8 are now called medium and wide. Medium is the size of two-by-two small tiles, while wide is two-by-four. Lastly, there is a large size option that's four-by-four. All sizes except small will show live information where available.
To change the size of any tile, just right-click it or tap and hold and select resize to bring up the size options.
