Hello,

I want to arrange my "All Programs" from the start menu because its becoming too long and takin over the screen.

I have tried to put folders inside new folders to clean it up but I cant see half of the folders when I "explore" the "All Programs" section...


Does anyone know how to do this?

Problem is not all programs are truly Windows XP compliant as regards user accounts, so what you're seeing are only those that have managed to go into your named account folder. How many programs have you installed where it asks you "Is this program for just you or for anybody to use"? Not many I bet. Only they are fully XP compliant.

To see them all you need to look in "All Users".

Right-click on 'Start', select "Open All Users". Open the 'Programs' folder there. You should see all the missing stuff now.
