Move "All Programs" link in start menu

Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to move the "All Programs" link in the start menu to be above the list of pinned programs. The green arrow and box in the attached image explain what I want to do.

Thank you,
-sklar

Hello Sklar, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm sorry, but you will not be able to do this with the Start Menu in Windows 7. However a 3rd party program like the free version of Vista Start Menu let's you have a customizable Start Menu that may work you instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you for the response, Shawn. That program doesn't quite fit what I'm looking for, but it's good to know for certain that the feature I'm looking for isn't included in Windows.
