Wi XPHome Cofig Start/programs Menu

Posted: 08-16-2004, 07:52 PM
Hi All,
I have an annoying problem (to me that is).

As a new user of XP Home, I note that the list of programs etc presented
after Start/Programs/ always comes up with a short list of installed
software that requires expansion to see the whole thing by clicking on
the double V icons at the bottom. This list is NOT too long for the
screen. This also occurs in sub-menus after "Programs"

Question: Is it possible to have the whole list presented at each
opening rather than the shortened one? (I did not have this annoyance in
XP Pro it seems to me)

Simon

Hi Simon,

Right-click Taskbar and choose Properties.
Click Start Menu tab and click Customize (Classic Start Menu)
Uncheck "Use Personalized Menus"
