    To launch a program form Win Me - I hit Start, Programs and then go to the bottom of each displayed window then it displays another window to the right and then another window until the last row which is hidden from view except for the very first of the frame. The cursor over the frame indicates what the program is and can be launched. I remember a fix for this on tech Tv. I don't remember if it was a download - program or something in the registery. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Thank you Kerri Ann. I went over to control panel and checked under display and didn't find anything to help but I found a group for taskbar and start. There was a place to put a check by scroll menu like you said and I tried it. It now gives me one long row for all my programs. I wasn't able to get to some recently installed programs before and now I can - so, a big thanks to you, and the creator of this site and all who support it with their time and efforts.
