    Yes I did, but it makes no difference to the actual start screen. The only thing that works is lowering the dpi setting, but that makes everything to small.
    Too bad. From how it looks I was hoping you will get two rows.

    I can see me using the full start screen option on this particular laptop.

    Sorry, yes I see how that can be confusing.

    Post #16 was taken from my Dell 17" laptop and is a current image of how its set up with the Anniversary Update. That is the look I'm after on the old Acer, and pre Anniversary Update I could in fact get close to this (two customisable name fields in the horizontal plane).

    Post #1 shows the Dell start menu from just before I clean installed AU. I just took a screen shot of it for reference so that I could rebuild both PC's the same way. Second shot in post #1 is how the Acer ends up when used with the same screen settings (dpi etc) as I've always used.
    Thanks - for reference could you post the Acer Start as it is now and I can focus on that as you make (if you make) changes) along the way.

    Final update on all this.

    I couldn't get the start menu to open at a size that would accommodate all that I wanted in the way that it did pre Anniversary Update. I've settled on using the full start screen option as can be seen here, and which I actually quite like.
