Hi, Curtis.

You've given us no details, so it's hard to help you much. But you can
start by entering at the Run line: msconfig

If you have specific questions, please post back. Better yet, just scan
through a week's worth of posts here; you should find the subject discussed
a dozen or more times. You are NOT the first poster to ask this question.

Which part of the Start menu? All Programs (or Programs if using "classic"
style)?

If yes, right click your start button and select Explore. Windows Explorer
will open with the focus on the folder containing your personal start menu
items. Right click it again and select Explore All Users. A second Explorer
window opens with the focus on the All Users start menu folders. These two
sources (main folders and their subfolders) are used to build your start
menu. Items under All Users appear for anyone logged on to the system.
Items in your folders, only show when your account is logged on.

You can add, remove or move folders and shortcuts. Suggest leaving the main
folders: Programs, Startup and Accessories in their original locations. For
my system, I've created folders to group similar programs. Example: The
folder Graphics Apps contains folders and shortcuts for all of the programs
that I have installed for viewing, editing or creating graphic images.
