Hi
I am afraid it is a little more complex than setting the number of columns!  You actually need to organise the layout itself. 
As the hint explains "Only change the default value (1) if you have created a layout with a special structure. Please see the example layout: <b>Sample with 4 columns</b>. You can find more information in the FAQ.
If you look in Categories there are some multi column layouts there.

There are more layouts available at
http://www.jdownloads.com/index.php/downloads/category/10-layouts-library.html
but at this time there are no multi column Files layouts.
If you have some idea - say pics- of a 2-column Files layout you would like please let me know
Colin
PS this is not a bug so I have moved to General

Hi
Yes just specifying 2 columns in the layout setup is no help as it requires multiple layout changes as well.
Please see topic http://www.jdownloads.com/forum/index.php?topic=9675
where I have created a two column files layout.  I intend to add it to the 'Layouts Library In the meantime you can download a 2 column layout a few steps down that topic.

Colin

PS I anticipate that in afuture major release that the option will be removed
