    Okay, I've got my favorites only dropping down to my most accessed ones. How in the hell do I make it so that when I click "favorites" I see the whole list? (IE 6)
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!

    In XP, go to the taskbar properties and click "customize" in the start menu tab. At the bottom of the checklist is "use personalized menus"

    I'm running XP Home.

    I can't seem to find any boxes that ask about personalized menus.

    I am running the classic start menu so maybe the options are different if you are running the Fisher Price start menu.

    I am on my parent's computer with the Fisher Price menus and can't see a way to turn off the personalized menus. Probably hard coded into the menu style since I think it is made to make navigation easier. Sorry.

    Are you talking about the list of favorites in IE itself, or the list of favorites displayed off the start menu?

    In IE - Tools menu - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - (about 14 items down) uncheck Enable Personalized Favorites Menu.

    If that doesn't do it, you can make a quick regedit :

    Start - Run - regedit.exe - OK

    Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

    On the left locate the string entry "FavIntelliMenus" - modify its value to "no", or if you don't see this entry, create it; right click - new - string value - name it FavIntelliMenus and give it a value of no.
