When I go from start to Programs, it displays all programs. Is there a way to
minimize the number programs displayed?

Other than not having them show???
try to create folders and then place the apropriate programs inside.As an
example and AUDIO folder that contains all programs related to audio.You can
do this by right clicking the start bar/explore all users...........drill
down to your user name /start menu/programs.........then click
file/new/folder..........give the folder a name and enter.
now drag and drop the shortcuts into the folder.Repeat as often as
necesary.There are also certain shortcuts that do not need to be
there....readme....license....release notes....

Thanks,
I thought I saw somewhere you could set the display to the last (user
defined)programs opened. But your idea is good.

Thanks

The other option is the irritating 'use personalized menus': rightclick
on your taskbar (a clear area of it), click 'properties', on the 'start
menu' tab, click the 'customize' button and check the 'use personalized
menus' checkbox. Now, windows will only show the most used items, much
like the default setting for Word menu items. Might be what you meant.
