Currently it's not possible without editing the code, since I never use the Applications tab.

You can open `$HOME/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.gitlab.cupnoodles14.kickoff/contents/ui/ApplicationsView.qml` and replace `KickoffListView` with `KickoffGridView`. It will display apps and categories in a grid. It will use the same settings as the favorites view though.

Here's a command to do it (if you have the same path for plasmoids as me) and restart plasma to apply changes.

```
sed -i 's/KickoffListView/KickoffGridView/' $HOME/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/com.gitlab.cupnoodles14.kickoff/contents/ui/ApplicationsView.qml

kquitapp5 plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell
```

(I'm pretty sure markdown doesn't work here but I'll use it anyway.)

I tried it out and it doesn't look too bad, I'll add it as an option in a future version. - Oct 04 2019
Hello! It's possible to configure the amount of columns, icon size, label position and fill direction (columns first or rows first) using "Right Click->Configure Application Launcher..." menu. - Oct 04 2019
