    511, here so I'm good, for now. I think I need a bigger monitor though.
    May I ask why you have so many?

    How can people make fun over this. My cousin who collected Beanie Babies might well start collecting apps. I can see a whole new market for collectable apps with themes. Apps inspired by romance novels might be a big seller.

    I'm afraid many of the 'applications' (Apps can't be displayed in this menu), are also executables found by Windows that I wouldn't have had in the old startmenu. So the count is much higher than what would be found in my personal and the all users start menu folder.

    That is the problem.

    So if you're really good at not using ' too many programs' -which I find a very strange thing to consider yourself a cool dude by-, count the exe files in your Alphabet-menu and tell me how many programs are in there you do NOT use.

    That wud be cool. ;-)

    And a restriction could be the problem but a 512 shortcut restriction seems highly unlikely.

    I knew that number hit some memory for me.. at least.
    Let's do some math(s)
    Start with 8 bits..
    8 * 2 = 16
    16 * 2 = 32
    32 * 2 = 64
    64 * 2 = 128
    128 * 2 = 256
    256 * 2 = 512 bits

    And 512 bits = number of apps allowed on start menu.. could be this reason.

    Who counts them!
    "I'm not gonna count them, you count them!"
    Somebody called for me ?
    Happened few times when I had 200+ programs installed and was REALLY hard to find anything in W7 Start menu, made dozen folders on desktop to keep them sorted by thematic. Otherwise, somewhere close to 100 is the norm on my main system. I love small specialized programs and loath those do it all but clean toilets applications of which I can use 10% of their capabilities. (wish they did clean toilets though).

    Installed programs that are shown on the start bar are called "apps" now. So probably more people than you think, when almost every steam game can be added to that list.

    Except that you have to specify adding the game to the start on install, otherwise they're only accessible through the steam app library. Using windows search I can't see any of the (currently) 4 steam games installed on my pc.
