    Default Below The taskbar

    Windows XP Pro

    The list of programs, that pops out when one goes to Start/All Programs, now has the very bottom program 99% obscured by the Task Bar.

    Any clues as what to do to correct that?

    Am not using Clasic Start Menu

    Hover your mouse over the small downward pointing triangle and it will scroll down.
    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

    Sounds like your Start Menu needs a bit of a tidy up. Have a look at this thread for tips on how to.

    That option is available using the Classic Start Menu.
    I am using the XP default, which does not have the scrolling arrow.

    My own list covers the Taskbar at the bottom of the list so are you saying that your Taskbar sits on top of the list of programs at the bottom of the list? Does the rest of the list not continue over to another column at the right?

    I have two columns, the first is fine but the second has the last (bottom) program 99% hidden behind the taskbar.

    Hmmm... can't say I have seen or heard of that one before.

    Maybe you could try changing to the Classic Start Menu then back to the Win XP menu again.

    Are your settings the same as on this page?

    If neither of those does any good then I have nothing further to suggest, other than to tidy the Start Menu up, sorry.
