In classic start menu, you have the normal stuff, Program Files, etc on the bottom, and then a spacer, and stuff on top...

how do u remove spacers within the startmenu?

Simply move everything from
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Start Menu
into the programs folder.

Also look in
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu
Basically everything located in the Start Menu folder is shown at the top and everything in the Programs Folder is shown underneath.

I think they're hard coded. They are ther in all start menu variastions, just coloured differently.

Well technically, im using a theme, but classic start menu isn't part of a theme.

Umm, I know people have removed it, frig. Ummm

You're using a visual style (.MSSTYLES). The theme file (.THEME) only applies the visual style and a combination of other things. The classic start menu is included with the visual style.

oh well then...I understand what your saying....

I guess I should find a tweaking forum, cause I'm 100% sure there is away to remove this spacers. I thought someone on here did it before, I must of be mistaken. Hmmm

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
