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.

As Lord said, they are coded into the visual style.

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

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
