Did you have auto arrange enabled before? That's when it shows tiles instead of extended tiles.

Are you in the Music library by chance instead of your actual "C:\Users\(user-name)\Music" folder?

Auto arrange cannot be disabled in a library. Only for folders.

Sorry but I only post here in the forum. If you like, it would be best to upload and post your screenshots directly here to view better.

Merge the .bat file from Option One in the tutorial on the first page, and see if you are able to arrange them how you like afterwards while using extended tiles.

That's the problem. It's a catch 22. You will have extended tiles with auto arrange disabled, but you will not be able to move the tiles around unless you have auto arrange disabled.

Not that I'm aware of unless you disable auto arrange and arrange them how you like with extended tiles.
