    Hello. Most screenshots these days show 4 columns of medium tiles with the newer Windows 10 builds. I read documentation somewhere that phones with and above 5" displays would have 4 columns of medium tiles. Unfortunately, my 830 doesn't seem to have it.

    Does anyone know which phones have this? Does the 930 have it?

    I think it's a resolution thing rather than a screen size thing. Your phone is only 720p.

    Till now, all scaling decisions were based on screen size, not resolution. The 1320 and 640XL are both 720p but definitely has the 4 medium sized tile columns.

    Can anyone confirm that the 930 supports 4 columns of medium tiles? If so, I will go get one today. I like smaller tiles, especially with W10, the tiles have become huge with the space between tiles cut down.

    930 doesn't support 4 columns of medium tiles (confirmed on my 930 running 10149). I think only those phones greater than 5" support (i.e. 1520).

    Ah! Thanks guys. Makes sense. So it is for everything above 5 inches. 1320/1520 & 640XL

    Greater than 5", but not including 5". My HTC One M8 doesn't have it, although it did during build 10080.

    in windows phone and windows 10 mobile, differences in design and features were made based on screen size AND resolution. sometimes only one, but sometimes both.
    tiles were usually the things that got influenced by BOTH screen size and resolution, so maybe for the forth column a 5"+ device with full HD display is required.
    as opposed to this, the new feature for navigation (holding home button) is influenced only by the screen size, not by resolution too.

    I can confirm that's not entirely accurate in this context because the 1320 and 640XL are both 720p and support the 4th column of tiles.

    It is possible with 920 (10586.11) set to 175% to get 4 columns with medium sized tiles. Smallest tiles almost become too small for my fingers though ...

    Go to settings, system, display, set scaling to lowest, restart phone. And after restart, show more tiles option to be enabled

    Settings>Personalization>Start, scroll down and check Show more tiles. If still no results, Settings>System>Display and move Size of text, apps... slider to 175% (default).

    Go to settings -system -size of text,display .do it 0%- then it will be asked for restart. After restart go to settings - personalization - start screen - show more tiles on . That's it. Remember, do this all things first you have to show more tiles option turn off.
