    First, there's three things that govern the size of the Start menu:
    -your screen resolution,
    -your dpi scaling,
    -the display size, (default or large), in PC Settings.

    For example:
    With my screen resolution of 1920X1080, with PC Settings display at default and keeping the dpi under 120%, I can pull the Start menu all the way up to the top of the screen.
    Changing the variables changes the menu's abilities.

    Then you ask: "how did you get all those spaces on the Start pane";
    well, I pinned everything to Start, made everything as large or 'wide', if possible, then made them all 'small'.

    It's a little weird, you've got to play with it a lot to get what you want; pin everything, unpin everything, re-size and re-size again, move them around, etc., etc., etc.

    Single Column?

    Hi folks,

    I would like to recommend this in the Feedback App, but I'm not sure how to say it. For lack of words, I have put this together so y'all can see what I would like. I guess I would just like more customization with the Start Menu.

    How did you get a single column?

    Last time I tried to do that, I ended up playing Start Screen whack-a-mole (just like in W8).
    I eventually gave up.

    Is that something that has been fixed in b9879?

    Tony, notice the small tiles in my photo? That's what I want to be able to do. At the moment I can't so I edited the start menu with my photo editor so y'all can see how I would like it.
    Ah.
    I should have read the whole thread before posting.

    All kidding aside > Those that have a Windows phone would understand how easy it could be to arrange tiles. Why they don't carry that over to the full-blown OS is beyond me. I have placed that in one of the popup comments when asked how easy it was moving tiles. I commented in the Feedback app about it also.

    To explain it, Chuck > Ability to single stack individual tiles in one column would be my guess.

    APPARENTLY NOT!

    This is as close as I could get;
    (although 'Display' size in PC Settings wouldn't change for me so there was one less thing I was able to try!):

    LOL.. Yes, Hippsie, I know how much you luv 'em tiles - I'm sure they will eventually follow WP8's layout.

    I got mine like Edwin's last screenshot.

    Ask MS why Classic Shell knows what we want better than them.
    It's called unbridled arrogance. Of course now, they've managed to even screw that up, by blocking the proper installation of the 3rd party start menu apps, quite possibly the most miserable and cynical act I seen from them since the whole metro fiasco began.

    Thanks, HG! I'll check the Feedback App and see if anyone else has done something like that.

    Thanks to everyone for your help and suggestions!
