    Help - How can I get menu back to proper size


    Hi there.

    Is there any way of getting back the menu to it's original size. I don't know what I did but most of it's gone and the menu won't re-size again.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    Not sure if it will work, but you could try enabling the start screen, and then switch back to menu again after that
    see if that clears anything that has gone wrong

    Hi there

    didn't work

    What I might have to do is create another user - delete my own user (having copied everything first) and then create myself again.

    System Restore also might be in order -- I get the option with the mouse to stretch the menu but it doesn't work --I've swapped mice too !!

    Cheers

    How did you go about shrinking it? By removing items? I have a feeling it dynamically changes to fit the amount of items in there although I could be wrong.

    Try right clicking the Start Menu > Properties > Start Menu > Customise and add some items to be displayed, it should extend then. Then remove them and see if it shrinks back down.

    Hi there

    Thanks - but take an image first in case it also hoses up your system !!!! - I also now haven't got any option to add items to the menu and if you have a look at another thread I can't personalize unless windows is activated !!!! -- I have a feeling I've hosed this install up !!! - Still it's testing. I'm off now to follow UK "Footy" -- I can get 15.00 (14.00 out time) U.K Saturday footy feeds here.

    Will logon again after the footy.

    Thanks again

    Cheers
