One easy way is to use small icons.

Hi Cindy,

Do you mean the overall height of the Start Menu? I think if you set the properties and uncheck 'Store list of recently opened programs' and uncheck something else like 'Documents', 'Pictures' or 'Music' this may reduce the size of the programs list.

Hope it helps

zigzag, man you're getting quicker with your new found piety LOL
