I have recently switched from Win98 to WinXP Pro. It's the little things
that I still need to tweek so I will be completely happy. Problem: When I
click on START and PROGRAMS it only lists the last 5 programs I have opened.
I would prefer that the entire list drop down. How can I change it to show
me all programs?

Hi Trish, click on the down arrow when you open all programs, it will then
show you the complete list.

Yes, I know that. What I would like is for it to show everything without
having to click that stupid arrow. Can I?

With the Classic Start Menu, both of these need to be UNChecked.
XP Start Menu doesn't have ? Use Personalized Menus option.

XP Start Menu >>
Right click the Start button | Properties |
Start Menu tab | Customize button | Advanced tab |
Scroll down to and UNCheck:
? Scroll Programs * |
OK | Apply | OK

Classic Start Menu >>
Right click the Start button | Properties |
Start Menu tab | Customize button |
Scroll down to and UNCheck both of these:
? Scroll Programs * |
? Use Personalized Menus **
OK | Apply | OK

[*Specifies whether to display the items on the Programs menu as one long
scrolling menu or as horizontal pages. Depending on your screen resolution,
if you have more than 29 or 38 programs installed, and you select to have
one long scrolling menu, you can access the programs you dont see
by clicking the arrow at each end of the list of programs.]

[**Specifies whether to turn on Personalized Menus.
Personalized Menus keeps the Programs menu clean by hiding items you haven't
used recently, while still keeping other programs easily accessible. You
can gain access to hidden programs by clicking the down arrow at the bottom
of the Programs menu.]

Hope this helps. Let us know.
