Start Menu "All Programs" - Not enough room to list all programs

Posted: 01-10-2004, 06:41 AM
Hello everyone

I have installed a large number of applications over the last couple years and have hit the problem that there isn't enough space for XP to display all of the items when I click on "All Programs" under the Start menu. I know that I can go through explorer and open up the "Start menu" folder, but that isn't quite as handy as the start button

Is there a way to change how XP displays the items in the start menu "All programs" or be able to scroll over in order to see all listings

Thanks for your time
Tom Gustafson

Try a right-click on START. Then click PROPERTIES|CUSTOMIZE|ADVANCED tab.
Scroll down to "scroll" and enable it.

Right click on the start button, properties, customize. Scroll down to "Scroll
programs." Place a check there.
