Solved How to Change START's ROWS in Customization

Has anyone found a modification utility that will allow more than the defined maximum rows on the Start Screen? My 1920x1200 monitor could easily handle 9 rows but is only allowed to have 7 rows. Smaller tiles and more rows and columns would be even nicer.
Weird and annoying. Suddenly after a reboot my 5 row layout of Metro screen was changed. Tiles are now huge, Metro only showing two rows: 6668 This on laptop's 1600 * 900 display. If I set my external 1920 * 1080 display as primary, it shows the same huge ties in 3 rows: 6669
