    1. ​Right click on the Start Button and select "Run"
    2. Type "regedit"
    3. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advance
    4. Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value, call it "EnableXamlStartMenu" without the quote marks
    5. Restart Explorer

    Thanks Dave but it was working for me anyway. I saw Jimbo had a problem with it and I assumed it was VMware.

    Can I ask - are you running in a VM or not?

    Hi interesting,
    Could you post a screen shot of the results and try to stack a few small icons vertically

    That is one thing I like to do stack vertically in a single row but now the width is twice as wide as it was prior but the old right column would not stack a single row
    Thanks for sharing
    Cheers.

    Here is a ss, I wondered about it to. It works as you can see in properties that customize is no longer shaded out

    The only thing is that you can make fully customize your start menu if you don't live in the US.

    Hi there
    Doesn't work for me
    @Dave44

    Do you have to set the Dword to 1. Doesn't seem to make any difference for me.

    I suspect that on a laptop with average resolution 1366 X 768 the setting might not work anyway.

    Cheers
