All Programs not Displaying...
I understand your problem exactly. You mean, you have so many programs installed, and would like to display them, without the limitation of Windows stopping (or going over) your display space! Which renders your mouse useless.
I too (being a video editor/comp tech)have run into the same problem, as I have hundreds of software titles installed (and no, it has nothing to do with software creating entries).
It's not a virus, nor any other horrible thing. It simply requires a change...
Right-Click on START
Select the Start-Menu, Tab
Make sure the Start Menu 'radio-button' is selected
Select the 'Customize button'
Select the 'Advanced Tab'
Scroll about 3/4 of the way through the list and you will find a check-box, indicating:
Scroll through Programs
Put a check in that box.
Shut down, re-start, and you should be good to go.
You should know get a cascading list of ALL the programs on your computer, in a list (without the hassle of running out of screen space).
This bugged me for months, before I found the tip. Hope it helps.
I too, originally thought it was a resolution problem.
