Stopping menu subsets!!!

Does anyone know of any settings that will stop Win2K from using those stupid subset menus.

The menus where you only see part of the items and have to use special arrows to see the rest.  Besides having to pick something "extra" to get the full menus, the menus are also composed of dimpled/undimpled or light/dark menu items.

Just another example of knowing what in our "best" interest ... idiots!

Another way...at least for IE...is to go to the menu bar in IE and select Tools then select the "Advanced" tab and then uncheck "Enable personlized Favorites menu".

Also you can right click on the Task bar and select "Properties" and then uncheck the box "Use peronlized menus" for the other menus used by the system.

That seems to have done it.  It never fails to surprise me how often Microsoft "adds value" like this and then doesn't provide for an obvious way of getting rid of their wonderful additions.

They really need to bundle all of these stuff into a single tool (like tweakui) and then give that tool a more prominent place in their systems.
