Thanks again, Antman. Knowing that the menu is dynamic is very helpful.
VistaStartMenu looks like an awesome program, but I do not have that many programs to actually want to use it. But really, I looked through all the features of VistaStartMenu, watched all the flash demos, and am very, very impressed. As a person who has a bachelor's in psychology, I really liked the cognitive thinking that went into creating the program. Maybe I'll use it someday (if I get fed up the the Windows 7 Start Menu). Thank you for recommending this!
I will keep on trying to figure out if I can increase the size of the Start Menu without adding unnecessary things to it. If I do, I'll be sure to post here in the future.
Off-Topic Note: I just saw your signature about you being offline for "an indeterminate amount of time." Whatever the reason for it, I hope it's for something good and that whatever you will be doing is pleasant. Take care.
