I figured how to pin contact to start. However, I want to go further and make it direct dial that person. Right now I have to click on tile and click on phone. How do I make tile to dial directly?


Natively, 2 taps in the minimum you would need to call up a person as you already know.

Your best bet is to use an app like WizTiles which is free and allows you to call one of your contacts with one tap from a tile as per what your are looking for.

Alternatively, tap and hold the Windows key and say "Call {person name}" or more specifically "Call {person name} mobile/office/home".
