    Am running Windows XP with the Start menu set to classic setting.

    Problem is that when I click on Start, Programs only the catagories
    that I have used lately come up such as Accessories - Games - etc.
    They all used to come up which is what I want it to be.

    How do I get Programs under Start, Programs to show again when I move
    the mouse over them and not just the ones I used lately?? They all
    used to show until the setting got switched somehow.

    TIA

    If this is not what you need, let us know:

    http://www.microsoft.com.nsatc.net/...-us/win_tray_personalized_menus.mspx?mfr=true

    If it got switched somehow and you didn't do it, somebody may have
    done it for you.

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware
    detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if desired.

    Just click on the double chevron at the bottom of the list that points
    down to display all the programs

    Yes I realize that but I want them to stay showing and clicking double
    chevron at the bottom does not keep them ALL showing next time I go
    there.

    Thanks anyways.

    Thanks very much. The web site had the solution.

    Somehow the "Personalized Menu" got checked.

    Thanks again
