    Question Resize Windows 7 Start Menu Tool

    I am looking for a tweak or tool to resize the height of win 7 start menu. The only way I've seen in the past was to patch and use a different theme which I would like to avoid with Win 7.

    Is there a place to request such a tool or tweak?

    Thanks

    Welcome to TWC, Space Cowb.

    AFAIK, there is no such tool available to resize Windows 7 Start menu. You need to use either third-party themes or theme customization software (paid). If you want to resize the height, simply increase/decrease the number of items to be shown in Start menu.

    Thanks

    I have reduced it as fas as it will go. Was strange that when I first installed win 7 and made the adjustments the start menu was smaller than it is now?
    There is a lot of empty space still.


    I was hoping someone would come up with a tool or tweak for this as I have seen others requesting this ability to size the start menu.

    Thanks

    Tried that .. No go .. I have had to pin programs to the start menu just to take up some of the empty space on the left side. Right side I only use ..

    Computer
    Control Panel
    Devices
    Run



    Untill someone makes a tool or tweak the only way I've seen to make it smaller is to apply a patch and theme.

    I still would like to keep the transparency with Win 7 and not have to patch the shell.

    I have just seen allot of request for this and comments on what Microsoft left out of Win 7 that would have been nice.
