JSI Tip 2118. How do I get rid of those annoying double arrows on my Windows 2000 Start menu?

When you navigate the Start menu, you may notice that only the most recently used applications are listed, and you have to click the double arrows to see the full menu.

This behavior is caused by Personalized Menus.

Use Start / Settings / Task Bar & Start Menu... and uncheck Use Personalized Menus on the General tab. Press Apply and OK.
