    Adding columns in the start menu


    Hi! Im currently trying to increase the amount of columns displayed to 2. I have a tiny 7 inch screen with DPI set at 150% which makes the start menu only show one column. Do anyone know how to increase this to two?

    How I did it:
    1 Go to settings => Personalization => Start.. then turn Full Screen on.
    2 Add something to the start menu when you open up the start menu(full)
    3. Go back and turn the Full Screen Off.

    4. You then should be able to stretch the menu by another column.

    Well because the picture is so small, you can't see that it's tablet mode. I only have one column with fullscreen.
