For some reason, my Start menu --> all prorams menu has become extra large and it has dissapeared over the screen. The width of the columns are huge and I wanted to know how I could make then smaller.

I've attatched what it looks likes as an image.

Thanks.

One thing I like to do to shrink the size of the Start Menu is to organize the program shortcuts and shortcut folders into a few categories, such as: AV Tools, Games, System Utilities, Security, Internet, Office, etc. and have subcategories inside each one if necessary. Just right-click the Start Menu and click Explore. From there, you can make new folders and drag and drop the shortcuts/folders in.

You can also have XP scroll down for the Programs instead. Just right-click the Start Menu and click Properties | Customize | Advanced. "Scroll Programs" is near the bottom of the list.

Thanks for ur help Pi rules, I managed to fix it. I found that one of my folders names was really long. So i edited it and made it smaller. This then made all the columns smaller and the same size.

Once again thanks.
