Windows 7: How to configure Taskbar for detailed popups?

16 Jan 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks. I just noticed that I was in the wrong place when I tried to increase the setting ThrashZone had suggested. But the correct one (Start Menu properties, Customize) is disabled! So, to be clear: When I go to the Customize screen of the Start Menu, there are two spinner controls at the bottom under a section called "Start menu size". The two are disabled! They are called "Number of recent programs to display," and "Number of recent items to display in Jump Lists." Both are zero and disabled. So, the question is, What would cause them to be disabled?...

Thanks. Unfortunately, changing the setting of items to list didn't help, as mentioned above. Still stuck.
