    How to Turn On or Off 'Show more tiles' on Start in Windows 10

    information   Information
    A Tile is an image that represents a pinned app on Start. Live tiles on Start display information that are useful at a glance without opening an app.

    The default for tile groups on Start is to have 3 columns of medium sized tiles, but Microsoft has heard feedback from many Insiders who wanted the ability to have a 4th column as well, so they could have two wide or large sized tiles side by side in a group. Starting in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10547, a Show more tiles setting has been added to be able to do this now. And for the Insiders that want more than 512 tiles on Start; Windows 10 now supports up to 2048.

    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off Show more tiles on Start for your account in Windows 10.

    Thanks, Shawn.

    Hooray! Since I can't use Tablet mode due to dual monitors this'll be one more step being more like the Start screen.

    I need those 2048 tiles too!

    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know what registry key this setting relates to? I can't seem to find where it is changed in the registry.

    Thanks heaps!

    Unfortunately according to Process Monitor changing this flag updates the %localappdata%\TileDataLayer\database not the registry.
