Have Win XP OS. I have added many new programs since I acquired this system. So many, infact, that there are 5 columns of programs, 2 of which I cannot see and read because they are off the screen to the right!
Does anyone know if you can scroll the StartMenu program screen so as to pull these 2 "Lost" columns to the left onto the screen for reading?
Any help appreciated!

Hi, I have the same question for You.
I have a lot of application installed and when I use the option Start/Programs I can see ONLY 4 column with the applications name. Well this list is until letter "N" and all other application are not there.
I have a flat video with 15 inch.
Temporarly I solve the problem using the option
Start/Proprierty/Personalize/Advanced/Scroll Programs menu

Do You know if there is a solution in order to reduce the size of the 4 column in order to get the complete list of installed applications ?

Thanks

You can use themes - some use smaller font sizes than the standard Windows XP theme, so more fits in. But it can be hard to find them, and some have caused me problems.

Instead, I have made extra folders in which I group programs together - for example a graphics folder which holds all my graphics programs. This takes up less space on the menu.

To do this, right-click on start, and choose properties. Choose "classic mode" and then "customize". This gives an Explorer box where you can add folders and move things around.
