Regarding adding programs to the Start Menu... I know I can drag an icon from the "All Programs" list to the Start Menu. But what if there ARE no programs listed in the All Programs list? I know they're there. How do I restore them to the All Programs list first?

Right-click on your start menu, and go to properties. There on the start menu tab you should see a customize button. In there you should be able to modify your start menu. Not sure what OS you are using but these instructions are for windows xp...

How do I use my iPod with MediaMonkey


<p>MediaMonkey is a music and third-party media player that lets you manage and organize music on your computer; you would like iTunes or Windows Media Player. As is the case with both programs, MediaMonkey is a tool to manage music on your iPod. Unlike one of these programs, however, MediaMonkey lets you download free music, not just from your computer to your iPod, but also from your iPod back to your computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Download and install MediaMonkey (http://www.mediamonkey.com/download/) on your computer if you have not done so. Open your "Start" menu and click "MediaMonkey" icon to start the program. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your iPod to your computer. Wait 50-10 seconds to MediaMonkey to the device, when it appears at the bottom of the navigation pane that runs along the left side of the program to recognize. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Double-click the name of your iPod content on the main window of MediaMonkey. Drag the songs from your iPod to your MediaMonkey "Library" to transfer to the hard drive of your computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Manually transfer songs from computer to your iPod by dragging them individually from your library MediaMonkey the name of your device in the navigation program. Alternatively, "Sync" click away from the "Tools" menu on your device to sync with MediaMonkey - all numbers that appear in your MediaMonkey library will also be on your iPod. <br />

Enhance your pc perfomance


<span> Control Inactive System Tray Icons <p><img src="SystemTray.jpg" />You don't have to hide or show all the icons in your system tray-you can control their disappearing acts. Right-click on the taskbar and select Properties. Click on the checkbox next to "Hide inactive icons" (if it's not checked by default), then click on the Customize button. For each item on this list, you can choose "Hide when inactive," "Always hide," or "Always show" options to decide what you'll see and when.<br /> Fit More Icons on Your Desktop <p>If your screen is so cluttered with Word documents and program shortcuts that you can't see the rolling meadows of your wallpaper, you don't need to move piles of stuff to the Recycling Bin. Just change the amount of space between icons. Right-click on the desktop, select Properties, then click on the Appearance tab, and click the Advanced button. In the "Item" drop-down, scroll down to Icon Spacing (Horizontal) and Icon Spacing (Vertical); changing the value in the "Size" field will move icons closer together (while increasing the number will move them farther apart). When you're done, click OK. To make your existing icons follow these rules, right-click on the desktop, select "Arrange Icons By" and then click Align to Grid, then go back to the same menu and click "Auto Arrange."<br /> Shut Down from Your Desktop <p>If you're trying to eliminate every extraneous mouse click, you can shut down your computer with an icon on the desktop. Right-click on your desktop, click "New," and then click "Shortcut." In the "Type the location of the item" field, type "shutdown -s -t 00" to give you a way to shut down the computer immediately. (Change the -s to -r to create a reboot shortcut instead.)<br /> Change What Programs Start When Windows Does <p>You can prevent a lot of apps forcing Windows into chilled-molasses boot times-without uninstalling anything. Click Start, then "Run...," and type msconfig. This brings up the System Configuration Utility window. Click on the Startup tab to see a list of all the apps slated to start when you boot up Windows. Click the check mark next to any you don't want, and then click OK to save your choices.<br /> Type With an Onscreen Keyboard <p><img src="On-Screen-Keyboard.jpg" />Whether you have trouble with your hands or you just prefer using the mouse, typing with Windows' onscreen keyboard can be a great convenience. Navigate to Start &gt; All Programs &gt; Accessories &gt; Accessibility, and click "On-Screen Keyboard." Click OK to clear the dialogue box and then start "typing"-you can even change the settings to "press" keys just by hovering your mouse over the letter you want (enable this feature by selecting "Typing Mode" from the Settings menu).<br /> No-wait Screen Savers <p>Don't want to wait for your screen saver to kick in? Create a shortcut to it just as you would for any other program by hitting Windows key + F to search your computer and click on "All files and folders." Type "*.scr" in the "All or part of the file name" field to find every screen saver file on your computer. In the resulting list, right-click and drag the screen saver you want to your desktop. Whenever you want it to start, just double-click its icon.<br /></span>

There is a listing available somewhere in Windows wherein you can "quick launch" a program to have it mostly loaded when first turning on the computer ( or have the program deleted from such...


A program can not be 'mostly [or partly] loaded' actually. You can go into the program's settings though and see if there's a way for it to 'Run on Startup', which would load the program when your computer boots up. The only problem with this is that it can slow your computer down and make it take longer to boot up.

How to put program type on tool bar


  1. Adding Icons to the Task Bar

    1. Click on the Start Menu to open it
    2. Click on "Programs" and find the program for which you want to create an icon
    3. Move your mouse pointer to the program you want to use
    4. Depress and hold down the right mouse button while you drag the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar section of the Task Bar
    5. When you release the right mouse button, a short menu will appear
    6. Choose "Create Shortcut(s) Here." An icon will be created in the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar

  2. Deleting Icons from the Task Bar

    1. Move the mouse pointer to the icon you want to delete
    2. Right-click on the icon
    3. Choose "Delete" from the short menu that appears. The icon has been deleted, but the program is still available to you on your hard disk

    NOTE: If you have carefully followed the steps above to add the icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, deleting it will NOT delete the program from your computer, it will simply remove the icon from your toolbar. The program will still be available to you.

Also you can "Drag" the program, to the bar, and "Drop" it on it. Check out a freeware application called StartupCPL at http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. This places a Startup icon in your Control Panel which, when opened, lists all applications on your PC with a check box for each one. Simply put a check mark in each application you want to open minimized on startup. By the way, it states it is for Windows ME and 2000, but I have had it on XP for quite a while and it works fine.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
