Windows Start Menu Problems

Basically it is not showing the recent items to the full capacity. I have it set to show "4" but it shows 5 with a blank space for 6. Even if I make it capacity to "6" in the settings nothing will show up here is a couple of screenshots to give u an idea of what is going on.

It is showing properly. You have it set to display 5 recent program, that's what it shows. The size of the Start Menu is Dependant on what you have chosen to display on the right side.

It looks proper to me. I did notice a Tune up utility on your list. I would recommend before using such a program ask questions here first about such a program. They can cause many problems.
