How to manage "All Programs" in startmenu in windows xp
« on: March 11, 2013, 11:29:37 PM »
Hi,

                 Downloading the required programs, the all program list is increasing and it took almost the entire window screen, so whenever you download a new program, it is getting added and the "all program' report "new Programs installed", but i could not see to know it or see it at all . Is there any solution for this problem.
                 I surfed the net, and tried the solution of checking the scroll mark in the customize tap in the task bar properties in the Advanced menu" in customize. It totally reduced the program to a single column but it does not show all the list, as before.
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

The scroll sized is your option. You will see a black arrow at the bottom, when you mouse over it is when it will start to move down the list :wink:

I cant remember but I think your scroll button on your mouse will work as well.

Hi,   I got the point. I tried to mouse a little bit extra in to the down screen and it worked. Fantastic answer. I did not notice the upper small black arrow, since, i could not scroll with the display. Thanks a lot. I would like you to consider this tips to be posted in user tips, because, these are the small but effective tips that one gets.
       The scroll in the mouse did not work here. Thank you once again.
