Using Metro Scaler is dead simple. Just run the portable tool, choose a size (5 – 25) by using the slider and click “Scale” button. Then restart your PC and see the changes.


If you wish to restore the changes to defaults, just click the ‘Reset to default’ button at the bottom-left of the app window.

Metro Scaler is an open source application that supports both Windows8 and Windows RT. You can download it from source here.
