multi-column Start menu layout?

Hi,

I should know this answer, but darned if I can figure it out.
Dell T3400 Workstation, XP Pro SP3+, fully updated. Using Classic Menus.

For some reason, when I click START, I get a single-column, scrollable menu
instead of multiple columns where the whole of the Start menu's contents are
displayed all at once on the screen. I hate having to use those tiny top &
bottom scroll marks on the single-column display.

Can you tell me where/how to make this change?

TIA,

Twayne`

1. Right click the start button

2. Left click "Properties"

3. Left click "Customize" (next to Classic Start Menu)

4. Untick "Scroll Programs" and apply

Does that work for you? I can;t try it because my program menu is only 11
items at the top level.

But it doesn't in most newsreaders. Either way, it's how most groups like to
see something has been resolved. Many will skip wasting time bothering with
such a subject, others will look, hoping to see the solution.
If you don't like standard procedure, don't bother looking for them. I
follow the practices of the majority of skilled readers.
OK, so how _should_ he indicate that the problem about
which he originally posted has been resolved? [If you say
start a new thread, then that's what he's done according
to you (-:!]
