Windows 7: All Programs in Start menu - place it on top?

All Programs in Start menu - place it on top?

Since I located my taskbar on top of the desktop, going from Start button to "All Programs" requires the maximum way possible. How can I relocate "All Programs" on top of the listings in the start menu?

I want to take the opportunity to express my utmost appreciation to Brink for this forum: very good contents, very clear and appealing design. Congratulations. Greetings from Germany, Tom.

I don't believe it is possible. I looked through all the settings for Classic Shell, and they don't have a way to do so natively at least. It's possible you could make a folder that would be higher up on the start menu, but not windows native all programs.

Perhaps create a new link

Then us Classic Shell to locate it higher on the right pane. That's likely as close as you will get.
