    RegistrVista start menu program scrolling vs panes (Vista Business)

    This registery worked in xp and 2000 but not in vista too create exploding panes instead of vertical scrolling,
    Enable Start Menu Scrolling (Windows 2000)

    see bleow

    When there are more items on the Start Menu than can fit on the screen, Windows can either create a second column of items or it can create a scrolling menu. This tweak controls that functionaility. (/cgi-bin/detail?id=515&filter=printer) (/cgi-bin/detail?id=515&filter=printer) (mailto:?subject=Windows Registry Guide Article&body=Enable Start Menu Scrolling - http://www.regedit.com/detail/515.html This article pointer was forwarded to you from the Windows Registry Guide site.) (mailto:?subject=Windows Registry Guide Article&body=Enable Start Menu Scrolling - http://www.regedit.com/detail/515.html This article pointer was forwarded to you from the Windows Registry Guide site.)
    Open your registry and find the key mentioned below.
    Create a new string value, or modify the the existing value, named 'StartMenuScrollPrograms'. Modify the value to equal 'YES' to enable scrolling of the items or 'NO' to disable it.
    Exit your registry and log off for the changes to take effect.
    Note: By using the same key except under the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE] tree the tweak can be enforced system wide, instead of only user based.
    For example, the setting may look like:

    (Default)(value not set)
    StartMenuScrollProgramsYES
    Registry Settings:
    Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerAdvanced]
    Value Name: StartMenuScrollPrograms
    Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
    Data: YES or NO

    I don't think the option of having a multi-column Programs menu is available in Windows Vista.

    BTW, in Windows XP you don't need a registry hack - the option is available in the Advanced tab of the Customize dialog for the Start Menu ("Scroll Programs").
