Windows 7: Customize Menu on Start Menu to Behave Like All Programs?

Customize Menu on Start Menu to Behave Like All Programs?

So I have the Classic Shell start menu replacement program (fantastic by the way), and it just occurred to me. Is it possible to have a menu on the right pane, instead of adding a scroll arrow on the bottom when there's too many items to fit on a screen, behave like the All Programs menu and automatically throw the other items into a second column? (If there's nothing you can tell me, that's fine, just thought I'd ask)

Sure that's possible. Go to the Customize Start Menu tab and double click the icon of the item whose submenu you want to show as multiple columns. Then check the option "Multi-column" and click OK everywhere to save all settings.

I always turn the Control Panel into a multi column menu.
