Windows Phone: change the size of the icons

Windows Phone 8 allows a high degree of customization of the home screen, more flexible than on an iPhone or Android smartphone. Like Windows 8, it is possible to choose the size of the icons between small square, medium square and large rectangle that covers the entire width of the screen.
