Customize The Start Menu

Windows XP gives you more control over the contents of the Start menu. Windows XP keeps track of your favorite applications and displays the six most used ones in the Start menu. You can display as many as 30 favorites if you want. Right-click on an empty space on the Taskbar and select 'Properties'. Select the 'Start Menu' tab then select 'Customize' to increase the number of favorites in the Start menu.
