    Menu's (win Xp)

    Is there any way to stop my menus from scrolling only the most recently used commands and instead display ALL the commands. This new feature I first noticed in XP and XP
    related Office apps is most annoying and I would love to know of a way to turn it OFF.

    Sure, In Windows XP if you are using the Classic Start Menu, right click on the Task Bar or Start Button and select Properties. Switch to the Start Menu Tab. Click the Customise buttom beside the Classic Start Menu Radio Button.

    In the dialog that opens, scroll down to the bottom of the Advanced Start Menu Options, uncheck the Use Personalized Menus and OK your way out of the Dialogs.

    In Office, right click on the Menu Bar and select Customize...

    Switch to the Options Tab. Uncheck Menus show recently used commands first.

    Now no more useless menus in WinXP and Office.
