The start menu is one of the most characteristic and at the same time important elements of Windows. In the case of the latest version of the operating system, we have a merger between the first versions and the famous Tiles that we have already seen debut in Windows 8. And, in this aspect, whether you like it or not, they are still different shortcuts to the applications.

However, the problem is that if you want to place too many you will not be able to do it, since although when you approach the edges the option to resize it appears, it cannot be made too big. As an alternative, you can show the start menu in full screen, but in case you don’t want to do this you still have another possibility.

So you can expand the size of the start menu in Windows 10

As we mentioned, in this case, It may be useful depending on your preferences to expand the size of the start menu. In addition, it is something that you will be able to achieve by just activating an option in the settings and with it you will be able to adjust the size to your liking if you wish.

For it, you just have to follow the next steps:

  1. Access the Windows settings from the start menu access or by pressing the Win + I keyboard shortcut.
  2. In the initial menu, select the “Personalization” option.
  3. In the bar on the left, choose the Personalization menu “Start”.
  4. Among the options that appear, mark the switch with the name “Show more icons on Start”.

Once you have enabled the option in question, you will see how Windows 10 start menu will have gotten a little bigger. Now, the interesting thing is that you will be able to resize it to your liking to get it to look like you really want from the edges of it. In addition, although by default when configuring this design there are some empty holes, icons can be placed in them without a problem.
