start-up programme list

  Flying Teddy 23:17 13 Jan 2004

Sorry if this is trivial for all you mega-brains out there, but it's driving me crazy.

My problem is how do I get the drop down (drop up?) box of start up programmmes [START - all programmes] to wrap into a second continuation box instead of having up/down arrows at top and bottom of the list? I have XP Pro.

Why have you got so many? Haven't you sorted them into folders like Games, Tools, My Stuff etc? Right click on the Start button and select Explore all users. You'll be able to create some new folders and move stuff around.

right click the taskbar/properties/start menu/customize/advanced

untick "scroll programs"

Very sensible advice, which I do try and keep to, but in the meantime please could you tell my kids...?


Thanks for the info - easy when you know how ;-)

And thanks for your prompt replies.
