    Hi,

    Is there a way to shorten the all programs list without uninstalling/deleting the programs?

    Currently my list is super long, so I have to have it on scroll, and I don't care for scroll because it takes forever. But having it on expand makes it impossible to see the last column.

    I'd rather not uninstall the programs if I don't have to, so I figured I'd ask. :)

    Thanks!
    Erin

    You can organize all your programs by arranging them into folders in your Programs Menu.

    In Windows Explorer, go here,
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
    and
    C:\Documents and Settings\Your Username\Start Menu\Programs

    Create some folders in their and drag your programs into those folders.
