    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 by side. All I can do is put one wide tile and one medium tile before the next "group" starts horizontally. Is there any way to fix this? It looks really ugly having to put 10 wide tiles vertically because I can't change the stupid forced group size.

    There have always been groups. However, at some point they switched the group size from 4 medium sized tiles to 3, which is what causes what you're talking about. At one point after the first updates, I still had 4 medium tile slots, but when I did a clean install it was 3.. so not sure if this is something that can get set in a registry entry or not.

    There's a thread about it here:
