    Win 10 start menu program group title bar


    Is there a way to resize the title bar for start menu program groups? Regedit maybe?

    If you right-click on a larger rectangular tile then click on the Smaller icon along the bottom of the screen you may turn it into a smaller square tile.

    If you want to see all apps, right-click on the Start screen then click on All apps icon in bottom right of the screen. You will now see all you apps as smaller icons.

    You may drag & drop tiles on the Start screen to new locations on the screen.

    Thank you, but that wasn't the question. I know how to resize tiles. I want to know if there's a way to resize or shorten the title bar for a program group

    I'm not real clear on the request, but if you hover over the current title words, a little edit hamburger is on the right of it. Click it and type what you want....as short or as long.

    that title bar is LONG...the physical length of it. If the title that you enter in the 'hamburger is "browsers" lets say, the durn title bar is a mile long. I can't drop another group icon right next to the existing one without adding it to that group. I want to create program groups in the start menu with simple titles that don't take up half the screen so I can put them next to each other.

    Oh, you want to adjust the available title bar space, and be able to add more of them, size specific. There's an imaginary vertical line between left and right groups. That determines the horizontal length of the title bar. MS has it as a fixed length, whether you use the full start menu or not. It's fixed. I know of no way to regedit that the way you want. Sorry.
