    I have not done a clean install to any of the recent builds, thus I still have 4 columns instead of 3 per grouping for my start menu. I really would like to change that to 3 (This is where a bunch of you will think I'm crazy :nosweat:), as it coincides well to my phone setup.


    Is there anyone here that knows of a registry hack to change the number of columns in a group for the start menu?

    In the new builds you can resize the start menu with your mouse older builds I don't realy know if it's possible by registry hack :tea:

    Yes, but you can only resize by the groupings, not individual tile columns. I've pondered about if there is a registry entry for it. Thought Id atleast ask :p

    Me too, I prefer having 4 columns rather than 3 as it seems more compact...

    I think it depends on the effective resolution at first logon. I get different amounts depending on whether I inject the video drivers before first logon but I haven't paid enough attention to come to any conclusion. Once the menu is built changing drivers has no effect.

    I had to reinstall older build (10051 in this case) and upgrade manually to 10130 via ISO, and voila got the 4 columns.

    Still cannot figure what key that responsible for that
