Collapsed?
« on: December 16, 2008, 05:55:08 PM »
Hi there,

After some days of use on my Sony desktop running XP MCE 2005, Start>Programs> List collapses.....shows a few programs & down arrows?

Any clues why?

Thanks.

How much RAM do you have in this computer?

Taskbar properties / Start Menu / Classic Start Menu / Customize / Advanced options: Use Personalized Menus ?

Or perhaps ...

Taskbar properties / Start Menu / Start Menu / Customize / Advanced options: Uncheck "Scroll Programs"

Thanks Igor and Alanrf... It could be as simple as you're posting... I've forgot this option, that I disabled a long long time ago, just after Windows installation ;)

Mr. Tech I got 2 gigs of physical ram @667 MHZ on this machine.

Thanks Mr.Tech, igor & alanrf for the input.

Task bar & Start Menu Properties>Start Menu> Classic Start menu> Customize > Unchecked all except Display Run.

Now they ain't collapsed any more.
