    Umm, yea, scrolling is an option............. ?

    What do do expect it to do? Of course you're gonna get half a tile if you have some full some wide some small tiles

    Get over your OCD and move on

    OP has changed his image links so I can't see the original image - but if you look, the tiles are completely different sizes on each screenshot

    He's obviously messed with his settings somewhere, but I have not messed with any settings and my tiles are also cut in half - Metro does not resize tiles depending on the sizes you choose, so obviously having 4 tile sizes to choose from, you will end up with a half tile depending on your choice

    btw - Cut, not Cutted ;)

    I already said there are rez issues with his Metro screen, so I see errors in text and pictures ;)

    We're not talking about text on tiles, we're talking about half tiles being cut off because of tiles size choice

    I agree with the OP, there is a problem with the RTM as well as all the BETA builds, as soon as you move or resize a tile part of the tile is cut off till you you go back to the desktop and then back to the start screen, anyone who does not see this or who can not understand what the OP is explaining needs to look at the screen shots and read more carefully what he is describing.

    I haven't experienced this problem (on a 2560x1440 screen).. and it seems that MrMagic does not understand the OP well, the picture that he draw is not correct.
