Go to the    base.yourcolordepth  file and change
     DeskTopSize 3x3 to
     DeskTopSize 4x2

Go to the pager file and set:
      *PagerColumns      1
      *PagerRows         1

If you start your pager from autoexec, then change

     Module  "I"     Pager 0 3 to
     Module  "I"     Pager 0 0

in both RestartFunction and InitFunction.

That should do the trick.

Also, my guess is that you can remove

*DeskTopSize          2x2
*DeskTopScale         24

from pager file.
