As you probably know, when the operating system began rolling out to the public the Start menu only supported up to 3 columns of medium-sized tiles. However, for many users this wasn’t enough, many users often noticed that using the Start menu in full screen or in Tablet mode there was a lot of waste of space. After many feedback, Microsoft is acting on the issue and it’s adding a new option in the Settings app that will allow users to have a fourth column with support up to two large or four medium tiles per group. This is an optional configuration and it’s disabled by default, but if you want to see more tiles on Start, simply follow the steps below:

Display a fourth column of tiles on Start

You’re all done. Now, go to the Start menu and you should see an extra row of tiles.

It’s worth pointing out that we have already seen a similar option in Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 Mobile already include the more tiles feature. Furthermore, Microsoft also notes that the Start menu in Windows 10 now support up to 2048 tiles, as such you can go crazy on the number tiles you pin to Start (previously, the operating system only supported 512 tiles). Also, the on Start settings, we can now see “Occasionally show suggestions in Start” option, which allows users to control whether the operating system should show app suggestions in the Start menu. Keep in mind that at the time of the writing, the feature is only available for Insiders, but Microsoft plans to bring the same functionality once it rolls out Windows 10 Threshold 2 to everyone.
