When you have many programs installed on Microsoft Windows XP, you may find that when you click Start and then point to All Programs, the list extends off the screen, and you cannot see all the programs that are on the list.


To resolve this issue, enable scrolling in the All Programs list so that it shows all programs. To enable scrolling, do the following:
  1. On the taskbar, right-click Start, and then select Properties.
  2. Click the Start Menu tab, and then click Customize.
  3. In the Customize Start Menu dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  4. Under Start menu items, click to select the Scroll Programs check box.
