    I purchased a new WinHD recently but noticed that is seems to be stuck in a 3-column tile layout with no way to switch to 2-column. Is this by design for all Windows 8.1 phones that have a 5" screen and larger? Is there any solution to switch to 2-column?

    Nope. The 'Show more tiles' option doesn't show on the WinHD for some reason. It shows on my old HTC 8s just fine. Any ideas?

    if the display/resolution is big enough, you are stuck on 3-column start setting. that show more tiles option is visible only on smaller devices which still want to use a third column by decresing tiles' size. vice-versa is not possible (bigger screen->only 2 column+increase tile size)

    Okay, thanks for confirming. That's very unfortunate for us vision-challenged users.

    When I first got mine, it had two columns. A few months later BLU released an update that changed it to three.

    My sister-in-law's phone had the two tile layout when she first got the phone. After an update, she no longer has the two tile layout, it's been switched to three. Also, the option to change the tile layout is gone. Before the update, I could change it but after the update I could not.
