    All Programs Display (Win XP)

    I have so many programs listed under "All Programs" that I can't see many of them. How can I get to see the programs at the end of the listing?

    Do you see some small arrows at the bottom of the screen, just go to them and more of your programs will appear.

    Give us a screen shot of the lower part of your Start, All Programs menu.

    You will need a "Capture" type program to do this.

    You can also reorganize your menus. If you are using classic start menu - right-click on start button and select properties | customized | advanced
    If you are using XP default menu then go to: Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersStart Menu or Cocuments and Settingsyour_profileStart Menu
    and organize under programs. I've created 5 general folders
    1- utilities
    2- applications
    3- Dev
    4- Media
    5- Internet
    and have sub catorgorized under that - so my menu is fairly compact.

    Dave, the screen shot is too big to be sent as an attachment. How can I ZIP it in Win XP or Office XP?

    Briiliant idea! My only problem is that I never remember which category I put something in. I'm doing well enough just remembering the alphabet but, barring an alternative arrangement, I may just categorize them by alpha clusters.

    I'll bet that your closets are organized and that you can find anything on your desk without going through stacks of stuff.

    Just crop it to show just what we need. That should make it small enough to post.

    Does it help if you right click the taskbar and choose Properties > Start Menu > Customize > Advanced > Scroll Programs?
