That is a lot easier - you're right.

It can be moved over by the start button
Look at Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks SIW2 that's almost what I mean and a very good idea but it still doesn't flyout the whole menu. It still scrolls. I think this was the classic menu default behaviour but there was also the option to have the whole menu flyout. But a very handy tip for replacing the link folders! Thanks for that!!! I think I will just force myself to get used to it - like all the other MS annoyances!

They were columned across the screen. I never had so many that I know what happened if you ran out of columns but that's how they were. I just went and had a look on my other computer with XP to confirm.

EDIT: I had another look and it's not an option - it's the default behaviour for XP "Start" Menu. If you change the properties to "Classic" Menu it loses this behaviour and becomes a scrolling menu.
