editor's review




Metro Scaler is a lightweight application built specifically for helping users perform several tweaking operations for the Windows 8 operating system. The tool is able to change the dimension of the tiles, which appear in the “Start Screen.”

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you to need to make certain system changes on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Metro Scaler sports a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to perform most operations with minimum effort.

The tool gives you the possibility to adjust the size of the tiles to a user-defined value pretty easily, thanks to its built-in slider. Additionally, you can reset the system to its default settings.

You should take into consideration that a restart is absolutely mandatory for the changes to applied correctly to the system. Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this tool, even rookies can learn to configure the dedicated parameters with just a few clicks.

During our testing we have noticed that Metro Scaler carries out a task very quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with programs’ functionality.

All things considered, Metro Scaler proves to be simple-to-use program that offers only a few parameters for helping you perform tweaking operations, and is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
