    Start Menu tiles moving vertically into new column

    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to add tiles vertically down on my start menu but whenever i try and put anything underneath Logitech Quickcam, it put's it horizontally (see MSI Afterburner), i want it in a set of 3 columns without it moving into a 4th. Any ideas? Hope that makes sense.

    Hi Giggsy,

    That looks normal. Same here...
    Tiles always jump to the 4th column for some reason. It seems we're not allowed to make full 3-column tile groups. Unless someone figured out some tweak for this.

    I've played around with it, moving the tiles around and clicking the little "-" minus symbol in the bottom right hand corner and have come to the conclusion that the Start Screen is designed to setup tiles from left to right in their specified block(The title names you give) as pairs and not up and down.

Hi, I am trying to arrange the tiles in the Start Menu in the order I want but it is impossible. If I move one to, let's say, the left, the other tiles around will also move in any direction. It is a headache, more like a brain game, to arrange them in the order you want. I just want to...
