to keep the All Programs list manageable.
Right click Start and select "Explore all users". A Windows Explorer window will open with, on the left, a list of folders with "Start Menu" highlighted. If there is a plus sign by that, click it to reveal "Programs" underneath. Highlight that.
In the right pane will be all the shortcuts listed under Programs. This is your All Programs list for all users of your computer.
With Programs higlighted, goto File > New and select New Folder. A new folder will be created. Change it's name to your choice.
Highlight Programs again and in the right pane highlight those shortcuts you want to transfer to the new folder. Drag them across to the left to the new folder.
Presto, you have started to organise your Start Menu All Programs list.
Hey Folks, I was wondering if anyone knows how to create a New Folder in the Start-All Programs listings? I have installed several imaging programs and have also several Microsoft programs that I would like to combine into one folder for each type of program. ie; MS Word,Outlook,Power Point, Front Page has installed and list separately in the listings. Can I create a folder that I can drop all of these into and title "Microsoft Programs"?
The Imaging programs are many also, most are trial programs that I am trying and will keep the ones that I prefer but would like to have one folder to put them into rather that spread them out over several. I've run out of room on the screen and the new programs that I install are OFF the side of the screen and not visable...
Please n Thanx to all.
