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


    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 with Windows 10 build 10547, a Show more tiles on Start setting has been added to be able to do this now. Windows 10 now supports up to 2048 tiles on Start.

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


    EXAMPLE: "Show more tiles on Start" On and Off

  2. show more tiles in windows 10 cannot turn on

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • When exactly this started to happen?
    • Did you make any changes to your computer? Like installing any game or software?
    • Is your computer up to date with Windows Updates?
      Press Windows logo key + R, type winver and hit
      Enter key. Now see the build and version details.
    From the description, I suspect that the problem might be with corrupted User Profile or might be with the infected or missing System files. Suggest you to execute below mentioned troubleshooting steps and see if they sort out the issue.

    Method 1:

    These steps will repair any missing or corrupted system files,, if they causing any issues.

    Step 1: Use System File Checker to repair damaged Windows files

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair damaged Windows files. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows logo key + X, select Command Prompt(Admin).
    • Run the "sfc /scannow" command by copy/pasting it into the Command prompt(Admin) and hit
      Enter key.
    • Once it complete, try to install updates again to see if they work correctly
    For more information about the System File Checker tool, see
    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files
    .

    Step 2: Run the DISM tool

    If the problem continues, use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool to fix Windows Update corruption errors. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Press Windows logo key + X, select Command Prompt(Admin).
    • Run the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" command by copy/pasting it into the Command prompt(Admin) and hit
      Enter key
    • Once it complete, try to install updates again to see if they work correctly.
    Important: When you run this command, DISM uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required to fix corruptions. However, if your Windows Update client is already broken, use a running Windows installation as the repair
    source, or use a Windows side-by-side folder from a network share or from a removable media, such as the Windows DVD, as the source of the files. To do this, run the following command instead:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:\RepairSource\Windows /LimitAccess

    Note: Replace the C:\RepairSource\Windows placeholder with the location of your repair source. For more information about using the DISM tool to repair Windows, reference

    Repair a Windows Image
    .

    To learn more about this tool, see
    Fix Windows corruption errors by using the DISM or System Update Readiness tool
    .

    Method 2:

    If an app or update that you recently installed caused problems with your PC, you can restore Windows back to an earlier point in time, called a restore point. System Restore doesn’t change your personal files, but it might remove
    recently installed apps and drivers.

    This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you

    create a restore point manually
    . Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.


    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select
      Control Panel.

    • Search Control Panel
      for Recovery.

    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select
      Next > Finish.
    Note


    • If you’re not seeing any restore points, it might be because system protection isn’t turned on. To check, go to the Control Panel, search for Recovery, and then select Recovery > Configure System Restore >
      Configure and make sure Turn on system protection is selected.
    Method 3:

    Sometimes corrupted User Profile causes this kind of behavior. Suggest you to try setting up another User Profile to see if it makes any difference.
    Refer the article Set up accounts on Windows 10.
    Once you set up another User Profile, check and see if the same thing happens there.

    Let us know how it went.

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