Win XP All Programs overflows width of screen.

  tobber 00:36 15 Jan 2005

Because I have loaded more programs then the latest
icons can't be seen i.e. they are off screen.How can
I see all the new software?

If you mean from Start/all programs then there should be a small black arrow at the top or bottom of the menu. Move your cursor up or down over the arrow and they will scroll onto the screen.

If you want them all to show at the same time then make new folders and group like minded applications into the same folder, this will reduce the amount on show and the need to scroll.

try this.

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

scroll down a wee bit in the window showing and put a tick in 'scroll programs'

Click on START.Select SETTINGS then...Taskbar and Start Menu.

Select the 'Start Menu' tab. Click CUSTOMISE. Find the option 'Scroll Programs'(third from bottom) and tick the box! Click OK!.

Now you will be able to scroll through all your Program's

Now think about creating folders for like programs as per Djohn's excellent suggestion. Then you will it easier to locate those less often used program's...

Then you will it easier??? .The missing word is 'find'

And everyone! For the benefit of those that don't know (me), how do I put the folder in Programs, please?

Make new folders in the Start Menu. Right click Start button, Explore All Users ...

Done! Thanks, VoG™.
