Windows 7

dont really want any of that, happy with the way everything is, but ideally would like all programs to come up automatically so i have all programs accessible and my computer and my documents when i click the start button. instead i have to add huge icons instead of just having everything instantly accessible. would there be some hack to do this, regedit so all programs automatically is clicked as soon as i click the windows key....

You can do it from the keyboard by hitting the up arrow once and then the right arrow or enter. Not exactly what you want, but easier than the mouse.
