In my start menu under Programs when I use the XP style menu I do not have enough room to show all the programs. The new programs I install do not show up its like they are off the monitor. I did switch to classic view and it did show all my programs but I'm half way down on the third row not sure what will happen when that fills up. I really do not want to change the screen resolution the Icons get to small. Is there a way to move the list over? Some of the titles of the programs are off the right side of the screen. :4-dontkno
Thanks in advance!!!!!!

The obvious question is do you even use most of those programs and can you get rid of some?

Other solutions are adding some folders to the menu so that you can group programs or program groups, use personalized menus, or probably the better choice which is the scroll programs option.

You might want to think about setting up some new menus and sorting you programs out by type. I have The main menu then a submenu for myself, the wife, in them it is broken down again into software types, Games,applications (Office ECT.),Util and so on. this make for a lot cleaner menu. My main menu has 6 entrys. the progams I use a lot are dropped directly into my submenu.
Main
Submenus
2nd submenu
The way to do this is to go into settings, task &startup menu, advanced, advanced this will open a window showing your start menu you can add menus here just like adding new folders which is exactly what you are doing. Once you have your submenus setup then you can close that window and ok the task & startup. open your main menu and the files you just created will be there. You can just drag and drop the shortcuts or directoy into the new menu.
Hope this makes sense. :grin:
Edit: by all means get rid of any thing you do not need (readme shortcuts Ect.)
