Default Too Many Programs

I'm running Windows XP Pro. I have more programs installed than the screen will show when I go Start and then to All Programs. Is there a way to make it show all the programs? Windows 98 used to list the programs with the ability to scroll down the list. I don't want to go back to the looks of 98, but I do want to see all the installed programs.

How's that done?

Thanks.

Dave

Right-click on your taskbar, go to properties.. go over to the "Start Menu" tab, click on "Customize...", switch to the "Advanced" tab, and scroll through the "Start Menu Items" box until you come to "Scroll Programs". This should be the setting you're looking for (I think)

That did it! Thanks! Now I only wish there was a hybrid between the two so I could show most of them and only scroll a little.

But, I can now get to all my programs!

BTW, I know several people that needed to know this. Now I can be the hero and tell them how! You won't tell, will you?
