There are plenty of guides that show you how to change the width of the start menu. But it seems it only can grow or shrink in width from the size of each "panel" (or folder or column) of tiles.
For example, this is my start menu, and it has two "panels" of tiles — each of which can fit 6 small icons, or 3 medium icons, or 1.5 wide and large icons.
Is there a way to resize one of the panels so it can take: 8 small icons, or 4 medium icons, or 2 wide icons? Ideally a way to do this on a per 'panel' option.
Every attempt I have made to simply drag the start menu wider or shorter has done so one panel / column at a time.
Using Win10 Home, if that makes a difference.
