Windows 7: Cascading Start; All Programs.

Cascading Start; All Programs.

My list of installed programs is growing and I find it inconvenient to have to scroll down the alphabetical list of programs in Start; All Programs. In XP I could have this open with side by side lists of programs. Is is possible for Windows 7 to do this?

The best solution is to create a nested folder tree to categorize the programs into associated groups. Do this by opening the All Programs bar and working in an Explorer window. If after you have completed sorting the programs found there, if there are still some left in the Start menu that were not found, simply drag them into the Explorer window to place them where you will.

Take a look at ClassicShell from SourceForge.net. May be what you're looking for.
