You know about the Start button, right? It sits down in the lower left-hand corner of the toolbar waiting to be clicked whereupon it shall reveal its wealth of information. But what if you click it and you don’t like the way it looks?

Well, you can get some relief, and have fun, with the Start Menu properties. Just right-click Start and choose Properties.

Next, click Customize to see all the things you can change.

Would you like large or small icons? How many programs do you want showing? Do you want a browser or email client displayed?

Now choose the Advanced tab to tweak the items on the left-hand side of the menu: Search, My Music, Run, etc.

Once you have everything set, click OK.

You can easily control how much, or how little appears in your Start Menu. Yeah!
