The Quick Way to Add Another Column to Windows 10’s Start Menu
Pinterest Stumbleupon Whatsapp

The Start Menu in Windows has had a storied history. Most users barely thought about its existence until it was taken away in Windows 8.

Thankfully, Microsoft came to its senses and brought the beloved method of accessing our stuff in Windows 10, albeit with some pretty serious differences. One of those differences is a higher level of customization.

One way you can tweak the Start Menu is by making it larger (or smaller). You can simply click the edge of the Start Menu and drag it to make it bigger, but this makes it a lot bigger, and can end up taking up almost the whole screen on some devices.


There’s a way to simply add another row of tiles, which will only increase the width by a little. You just need to go into Settings, then click Personalization, then Start, and click turn on the option labeled Show More Tiles.

Do you like the Windows 10 Start Menu, or do you miss the Windows 7 one? Let us know in the comments!

    I don't like the Mini-Metro screen in Windows 10. I replaced it with a real start menu known as Classic Shell.
