Default Start "Programs" List

How can I get all my programs to stay in the programs list
in the "Start" menu? I have changed the tabs in the start
menu to load "30 programs but when I click on one of the
programs in the list and use it and then go back in to the
programs list only the one I recently selected is there.
Without having to go into the "start" menu setup and
clearing the program list on the advanced tab each time
how can I get all of my programs to display? I know you
can click on the down arrow to show them but I want them
to all to display all the time? What is the secret or
can't this be done?

Thanks

When you press Start the programs on the left are just your most
recently used progams. At the bottom All Programs open the a list which
will display fully open if you uncheck Scroll Programs in customize
advanced tab of start menu properties.

None of you explain what you're seeing. Perhaps you mean Use =

Correct. The recent programs list is not displayed in classic mode.

Or if it is

: unchecked.

Right click the start button and choose propertiescustomize .

I, too, would prefer if the entire list would open.

I am not sure unchecking this box does the trick. Mine are open and I
have forget where I changed it. Someone will post I hope.

Give XP Start Menu a trial run. I think it customizes well and offers
more options on the first click. With quicklaunch, notification area
icons and office toolbar my desktop is empty and trips to the program
menu are few. ( the entire list shows too. ) IMHO
