    I have three columns of items on my start menu and there are several which are not appearing due to space. Is there some way of viewing these? New ones appear at the bottom right corner of the 3rd column if I happen to delete any others so I know there are some that are missing. Any help being able to view them would be greatly appreciated.

    I like to keep my Start Menu Programs organised into groups. You can do this by navigating to the following folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs, and then creating a new folder for each different group of programs, then drag the corresponding program icon into it.

    Works for me ;)

    More importantly look at what all you have. If you don't need it, right click on it and delete it. You will not delete anything that is actually needed to run, if you say I might need this, leave it. Things like Acrobat can be deleted.

    If you have Office installed make a group called MS Office or something and put them all into the one directory.

    If all else fails, increase the resolution of your computer or make your font a little smaller, I think that might help.
