Ok, the original thread is here (for the RT): (MOD) how to add more rows of tiles on surface - xda-developers
I took this and tried the settings and nothing happened, so I kept messing with the settings. I wanted 4 rows, but was unable to do that, so I ended up with 5, still VERY HAPPY with that.
Here is the change:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Scaling] - Scaling most likely will not exist, so create the key
"MonitorSize"="13.1" - String value that you will have to create
You can also put this in a text file and save it as a .REG and it will import.
To revert, remove key and reboot.
Hope this helps! :DTalderon

If you've upgraded to 8.1, you can get 5 or even 6 rows quite easily, without changing the registry. Under pc settings, you can change display settings to smaller, which will give you 5 rows. While on the start screen bring up the settings from the charms bar and choose tiles at the top, there's a switch for show more tiles, which adds an extra row. Only downside for some might be that all text and tiles are a little smaller, but for me it's still more than comfortable to read and use.
