INFO: Adding a 4th row of tiles to the Start page of Surface for Windows RT

This is the START page on my Surface for Windows RT.  Notice anything different?

imageFour rows of tiles on a Surface for Windows RT Start page

What you need to do is:

  1. Open the Registry via the desktop using REGEDIT.EXE
  2. Create the following key[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
    CurrentVersion\Explorer\Scaling]
  3. Create the following String value in this key:
    MonitorSize"="12.1
  4. Reboot

Don’t fully know all the side effects of this change, other than the keyboard getting a bit smaller and the fonts looking a little less sharp.  You can however roll back the changes by removing the Scaling key.
