    How to narrow the tile column in the start menu?


    How do I narrow the tiles column in the start menu?
    I have unpinned many of the tiles on the start menu and moved others around so that I have only one row of tiles and I would like to make the column narrower, but I haven't been able to. I made the double arrows show on the right side, and I click and hold the arrows to move it to the left, but nothing happens. Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance for the advice,
    Mary

    :)

    How to reset the tile layout in the start menu

    According to
    this article
    TileDataLayer was deprecated in CU

    In Creators Update removing or copying TileDataLayer folder between accounts does not seem to work anymore.

    I tried doing that as it shows in the link, and I can resize using the up and down arrows, but the arrow to the left doesn't move at all. Am I doing something wrong or is it a glitch in my Windows 10 system?

    Hello Mary, *Smile

    Each group of apps on Start has 3 columns by default. I'm not aware of a way to change that yet though.

    If I'm understanding you correctly, the only way to narrow the tile column so that it doesn't take up so much space of the desktop would be to unpin all of the tiles?

    I do want to keep some of the tiles. I hope that MS will make some tweaks to the system.
    Thanks for the advice.

    It would be nice to have an option to change that.
