This tutorial explains how to add one more column to Windows 10 Start Menu.

By default, there are 3 columns in Start Menu of Windows 10. The left column shows the recent apps, most used, and all apps and rest of the two columns are used to add or pin tiles. However, do you know that there is a secret or hidden column that you can activate in Windows 10 Start Menu? This will help you add more tiles (your favorite programs) and have more space on Start Menu.

You need to perform a few mouse clicks only and then you can activate that secret column for Start Menu. You also don’t have to restart the PC. As soon as you activate the column, it is visible in the Start Menu. You can also switch back to the default 3 columns layout whenever you want.
