Windows 7: Start Menu Mod

16 Nov 2013   #1

Start Menu Mod

As a result of discussion in the Start Menu Full topic, I will no longer need Start Menu icons and all that space is now wasted and only the 'Search' and 'All Programs' button remains. Is it possible to reduce/remove that empty space by relocating these to join the items on the right-side (preferred option)? Or maybe even add them to a toolbar or stack (secondary option)?

I tripped over this you might look at,

I don't know about resizing the start menu list to only show search though I would ask Brink on one of his many great tutorials about the start menu and see if he can help,
