Customising Start Menu XP Pro

  alcudia 16:47 01 Dec 03

Been wondering about this for months. Does anyone know how to get the full contents of the Start menu to display from a right click\open on the Start button. Only a small number of the folders appear in the Programs folder.

I want to create new folders relating to program category and drag the relevant folders into them like I used to in Win9x, but If I can't see them it becomes somewhat dificult.

The reason is that the Start menu now has three columns and I want to tidy it up a bit.

Or is copy and paste the only way.

Thanks for any help.

With Win2k I find that I can right click and "explore all users" and that has many of the programs in it. In here I put the new folder and drag in the programs I want; then right click and choose "explore" and again do the same.

Thus I have subfolders with, for example "internet" "utilities" etc.

Thanks for your replies. In the end used "Open all Users"

All done now.

Never noticed this and have been using XP for nearly two years. Shows how easy it is to become stuck in the old ways.
