    Can start menu groups be made wider?


    I currently use custom "wide" size live tiles as game shortcuts, and I would like to be able to make my "games" group wider or, ideally, turn off grouping altogether because I only have games pinned. Are either of these things possible?

    EDIT: This thread is NOT solved, please unmark it as such!!!

    Only setting I know of is this:

    ... changes medium tiles to a group of 4 instead of 3.

    Perhaps it's not available on Windows 10 Home Edition.

    Edwin, I believe it's only available on the Insider Build right now.

    As bobjoe said, that feature is only available in the insider build. Instead of three medium tiles side by side it allows four medium, two wide or two large tiles side by side.

Can you resize the groups on the start menu now? Build 10162
I've noticed in screenshots of earlier Windows 10 builds you could put wide tiles side by side and just expand the start menu horizontally. Now it seems they introduced these "grouping" things which doesn't even allow you to put 2 wide tiles side...
