    Windows 8-All Programs, how show all of the programs?


    In Vista and others I have cascading menus and so not have to scroll down

    I am using the Start8 add in for start menu but doubt that has any effect on what I wold like?

    Thanks

    Hello Peter,

    If you like, here's also a modern Apps screen shortcut to make opening it easier. It's the same as Vista's "All Programs" but in a modern version.

    Looks good but would actually liek the ALL PROGRAMS from the START MENU to do this without the shortcut if possible.

    Thanks

    Sure, you can open Apps from the Start screen without a shortcut.
    If you wanted something like David posted above, then you could use the Start8 program.

    You could also use Classic Shell.


    Here's another option below for a cascading Start menu as a toolbar on your taskbar if you like.
