Is there more than 17 added to the application menu. Is there a way to increase it?

Hello Nazmiko, and welcome to Seven Forums.

17 is the limit that can be on a cascading menu. Was there some that you didn't want that you would like to replace with others? If so, please also include which ones you wanted. I'll be happy to customize it a bit for you.

The problem is more than just add a menu item 17 (for example, 30 items). Thank you for your interest.

You could have two separate cascading Accessories 1 and Accessories 2 folders to have them all if you like.

I just did that, but I do not like it. I searched but could not find a way to increase the limit too. results show that the force will have to get used to it. Thanks for everything.

Hello BrokenWindows,

Sorry, but this will only work in Windows 7.
