    Start menu side shrunk.

    Not sure where to post this.

    I opened the Start button > found the entire left side of Start Menu has been shrunk. See screenshot below.
    How do I put it back to normal ? I have tried the icons on the left side but they are not what I need to fix it.

    I can use one of the icons to expand it, but then I don't see the live tiles on the right side.

    Hello David,

    It looks like you may have mistakenly set to hide the app list in the Start menu.
