    Centering start screen

    If you look at this image you can see how the apps all appear to be crammed to the side, like theres two inches of space on the left while the tiles are going off the side on the right.

    Is there a setting or script somewhere to just have that auto centered so that there is roughly the same buffered area on both size of the tiles wall. I know its not a big deal but to a somewhat OCD person like me this skewed layout is killing me.

    Hello, harrjm. Welcome to EightForums.

    There is no centering setting that I know of. Start Screen always opens in this manner. One can create groups of columns and the amount of columns in each group.

    One can also name each column if so desired.
