Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I have the clssic start menu and two monitors. When I move the cursor over "programs", I get the program list spread over the two monitors but only up as the first couple starting with the letter "O" on approximately a third of the area of the second monitor. I would add that I do have rather a lot of programs that I like to experiment with and some do certain things better than others, which is why I keep them. I wonder why the others later on in the order aren`t displayed? I can get them to scroll, but I would rather have them all on view at once.
HOW DO I STOP A PROGRAM FROM STARTING UP WHEN I START UP MY SYSTEM, I USE XP. THANKS RICK
msconfig, or one of the tools listed in this article: http://ask-leo.com/whats_all_this_stuff_running_after_i_boot_windows.html - I prefer autoruns, myself.
Thanks Leo, the hiding of unused start menu items has been driving me NUTS! "Use Personalized Menus" sure doesn't read as "hide unused programs" to me! Fixed now.
I use the "classic start menu" in Windows XP Pro, and have "scroll programs" unchecked and "use personalized menus" checked. However, starting several months ago, all of my programs are listed, even those I have not used in months. My guess is that a registry entry got deleted by a registry cleaner program. Can you help me get back to hiding the unused programs? Thanks.
how can I get my programs to display on my desktop when I click on the icons. It shows up in the task bar but the desktop is still showing. I can see a splash the immediatly goes to the top left of the screen but I can't see the running program. I'm using XP-Pro w/sp2
Thank you so much! It's been a couple of years since I got a new computer and for the life of me I couldn't remember how to fix the display issue of all programs. I feel so much more complete now.
Super thanks! ~ Mrs. Church
I think the original question was the same one I have - not in the Start menu, but in Office programs, such as Excel, a user has to click an arrow to get all the menu choices. How do I turn that feature off so that, when I select an Excel menu, the whole menu shows at once?

Well, the original question does say "In Windows", however...
Take Word, for example: right click on your menu bar, and click on
"Customize...". Then click on the "Options" tab, and therein click on "Always
show full menus".
Excel and other Office apps work similarly.
