Windows 7: Start Menu - Show All Programs automatically

Start Menu - Show All Programs automatically

Hi
I would like to know if is possible to show All Programs in the start menu automatically when you click the orb. Because clicking every time to show the list of All Programs is not very nice since I don't use the recently programs open function.

Hello Psyalmao,

Other than the reply you got at your other post on this, you can use the free program Vista Start Menu to have one that is very customizable. There is no way that I'm aware of with the default Start Menu.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The great thing about that program is that you can easily close it at anytime to return to the default Start Menu, then run the program to have the new one again.

Sorry for posting in this older thread, but having all programs by default would be a neat hack! More so with windows 7, cause all frequent programs are on the task bar. Maybe something for MS to look into?

If "Number of Programs on Startmenue" = 0 then show "All Programms" when open the startmenue - Windows 7 Taskforce

That describes how to get rid of the white space but it isn't working for me.

no it doesn't - it's just a user saying he wishes things worked like that...

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

I have dragged a shortcut from the "Programdata -Microsoft-Windows-start menu-Programs" folder to the desktop. There were some goodies also in the other start menu which I had to copy over but the result works fine for me.

That would be cool if ms could do that, or a hack perhaps!
