We are all addicts for free software and, in many cases, can't resist installing the latest applications on our pc's. This inevitably bloats the All programs menu so that you are in a situation as when you open All programs two, three or maybe four columns roll out to the right of the screen filled with applications. This is fine if you have a monitor with an already high resolution display. But what happens if you have visual problems and you rely upon the standard 800 x 600 screen resolution? The simple answer is that the list of applications disappears from view and you are unable to see what is on the All Program list because it is covered by the taskbar or has disappeared off screen. So what is the answer? Simple enable the All programs list to scroll instead of slide.
1/ Right click on a vacant spot on the taskbar
2/ From the drop down menu select properties.
3/ In the properties window click on the Start Menu tab.
4/ In the Start menu tab click the Customise button.
5/ When the Customise window appears click the Advanced tab.
6/ Scroll down the list of items in the Start Menu Items list.
7/ Towards the bottom and right underneath the Run Command you will see an option called Scroll programs.
8/ Place a Tick in the box to the left of this option.
9/ Next press OK.
10/ In the next windows press the Apply button followed by OK to close the properties window.
11/ Now click the Start button followed by All programs.
12/ Your applications should now appear in one long list with a scroll button at the bottom of the list.
