Windows 7: Change Control Panel Display

Change Control Panel Display

OK,I have all of my regular items on the right side of the start menu set up to display in menu form.I like to see everything available to me with a simple mouse over.In the case of Control Panel,the list is "taller" than my screen.This annoys me to no end.Is there a way to make this display as two columns? In XP this was a simple check box for "scroll programs",though I can't find anything to make this display change.Same goes for the All Programs menu-I hate the right side column slider,and would love to see the taller all inclusive list as in XP.Any work around for these?On a side note.I've gone from XP straight to 7,and never even booted a rig running Vista,so be gentle please.

Detailer. God Bless Horsepower & Mark Martin! Dang right.
Welcome to SevenForums, Try this tutorial for the all programs nuance.
Start Menu - Change Height
That will make your start menu longer so all programs will also be longer. Hope this helps. Some other tuts on start menu changes too.

Thanks,but...

those options are "grayed" out-unable to change them.Any idea what I broke? Yes,I've been playing with it-"If it ain't broke,you haven't tweaked it enough"! ZR huh? Saaweeeet!

Yeah, if you have disabled showing recent programs and recent files, then both will be grayed out....
