The new WordPress 3.8 was released today, and the first thing I did was go through and look for any new annoyances with this big new interface change (yet to know whether I like it yet).

The first thing I noticed was that the column options in the Dashboard area was removed, and was only allowing 1-4 options based off css media queries.

  1. function add_back_dashboard_columns() 
  2. {
  3. add_screen_option(
  4. 'layout_columns',
  5.   array(
  6.      'max' =>; 2,
  7.      'default' =>; 1 ) );
  8. }
  9. add_action( 'admin_head-index.php', 'add_back_dashboard_columns' );

Too add the option back, and to set a max and a default option, use the function above and place in your themes functions.php file.
