Start Menu Grouping - Windows XP/2000/ME

hi, I have a number of programs on my start menu, and now, XP has decided to hide my least used programs. Of course, I can get them back by clicking on the little downward pointing arrow, but I dont want it to hide them in the first place! I have it set to "classic". Is there anyway of disabling this feature, wither through options, Tweak or editing the registry? Cheers in advance Leigh...

    Default Start Menu Grouping

    hi,

    I have a number of programs on my start menu, and now, XP
    has decided to hide my least used programs. Of course, I
    can get them back by clicking on the little downward
    pointing arrow, but I dont want it to hide them in the
    first place!

    I have it set to "classic".

    Is there anyway of disabling this feature, wither through
    options, Tweak or editing the registry?

    Cheers in advance

    Hi Leigh,

    Settings/Taskbar and Start Menu/Start Menu tab, click "customize". In hte
    advanced options, uncheck "use personalized menus".
