    I just downloaded the new update for window's 8.1 on my new Blu Win HD phone. After the install, the tiles no longer fill the screen but only using about 2 thirds of the width. Is there a fix?

    I think it enabled the typical three-column width in that phone.

    You now have three, instead of two columns to play with.
    Congrats! Try moving tiles around to take up that new space.

    thank you for the quick answer. I guess I should have tried doing that. It caught me by surprise to go from full screen to partial.

    It appears that the option to disable this "show more tiles" "feature" has been removed. My wife has a BLU Win HD, and she's now having difficulty with the smaller icons on the start screen (poor vision).

    Anyone know how to get this back to "normal" - 2 columns instead of 3?

    Unfortunately there is no way as of today. Phones with ~5 inch screens get three columns as default with no way to change them, unless set by the manufacturer

    If your wife is having problems due to poor vision you could try to just increase the tile sizes on her most used apps.
