    Ok, for some reason somthing happened to my "Start" "Programs" file. Ill try and describe this as best I can. After hitting those options on my desktop, it gives me the software choices, but now it only gives me my most popular ones that I just used, with an arrow pointing toward the bottom. After hitting the arrow all the software choices are there. I don't want to have to hit the down button everytime to show my software. For some reason I changed the settings and I want them back to where they were.

    Thanks in advance
    Mike

    You may have set it to (classic start menu)

    Right click a blank spot on the task bar then properties/ start menu tab and see if (start menu) or (classic start menu) is ticked. If it's classic change to
    (start menu) see if that does it for you.

    Go into the start menu properties and uncheck "use personalized menus"

    It was unchecked, but I checked it, and then saved the settings, then went back and unchecked it and it seems to be fine now.

    Thanks
