    Programs (XPP SP-1)

    When I choose "Start" "Programs" and it expands to show all that are laded on my computer I am losing the site of some of them in the third column to the right that it produces. How can I get these programs to all be visible even if it is allowing it to produce only one column of these programs. I think by adjusting some font to make it smaller somewhere I could see more of the "Programs" but I like the way my desktop is set up except for this.

    Thanks.

    After "Start | All Programs", right-click the longest name visible and select "Rename" in the context menu. Replace the long name with a shorter version and click "OK". Repeat until all excessively long names are a more reasonable length, and you can see all your programs' names.

    TimOz,

    Thanks but I thought there was a way to make it only appear in one column.

    If I rename it today, I'll forget what it was tomorrow.

    Ah! You want to scroll the list. Right-click "Start" and select "Properties" on the context menu. Select the "Start Menu" pane in the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" dialog and click "Customize

    TimOz,

    Thanks that worked.

    PS When I suggested renaming, I implied a meaningful abbreviation.
    I know you did but the way my day has gone I didn
