Some of Start Menu pinned items not visible

I have some pinned items on the start menu but the list of visible items got populated and the rest of the pinned items seems to be below the list of visible items but they are not reachable because i can't scroll up to see them.

How to fix this?

Hi,
You might post a screen shot if you need assistance review the links in my signature for how too's,
Also click start and type in the search box
dpi or make text and other items larger or smaller
What is the dpi set on ?

Also type in the search box
resolution
Are you set on the Recommended resolution for your monitor and are you using multiple monitors ?
Cheers.

dpi is set to "smaller - 100%". My screen resolution is 1280x800 and i don't use multiple monitors. Screenshot will not show much but it look something like this:

Are you saying i should be able to scroll up the list of pinned items?

Hi,
No that I know of there's only room for as many as your vertical resolution allows in your case 800 minus the taskbar size
There's is a little more room to increase the start menus vertical size but not muck only one more item,
Pinned items will not show a scroll bar that is I've never seen one with one anyway :/
Start Menu - Customize
So youd have to reduce the amount of recent program to show in the start menu list

Here's my example of a totally full 900 start menu list, with 15 items set to show maximum allowed.
Possibly you should right click the ones you don't want there and click on Remove from this list

I guess then this is a normal Windows 7 behavior, i thought i may have some bug or something. I may look for some start menu replacement that allow to put more items.

Hi,
That's pretty much why I asked what dpi your using,
A larger dpi as I'm using 125%
It's hard to believe you find the "Getting started" listing helpful ?
Look at the tutorial I posted it will clearly show how to raise the space but as stated it can not exceed the 800 of your screen height
Cheers.

pinned items vanished on start menu
The functionality is not disabled, I can pin new items, but existing items disappeared, they vanished after updating nvidia display drivers and rebooting. If I repin the same items they appear but with (2) appended to the name indicating they a duplicate pin. Any ideas?

Start Menu Pinned items scroll
Okay, so I have a crapload of programs (mostly games) on my comp. I also abhor desktop shortcuts. I hate clutter. Anywho, I have my most frequently used stuff (Firefox, Pidgin, WMP, etc.) on my taskbar. For most everything else save a few progs. I hardly ever use, I pin them to the start menu....

Can't drag items pinned on the start menu to sort them
On build 7000, I could do this. But now everytime I try to drag a pinned item to move it to the top (I like to keep my stuff alphabetically ordered), it just gives me the option to open it with whatever else I'm holding it over. Anyone else notice this and/or know a way around this nonsense?...
