i am not sure what you mean sorry.
do you mean sub menus like 'tools/view/insert/format' etc in the likes of word or outlook? either click the little arrows or wait a few seconds and the full menu will appear.
or in outlook or word for example click on 'tools/customize' and tick 'always show full menus'
programs files and shortcuts etc on you desktop will either need to be single or double clicked to open them depending on how you have set up in control panel/tools/folder options.
