Well I made better time than I thought I would. I would suggest to print this article for reference when you are working. Please take your time and read this article first so you have an idea of what you have to do.
For this procedure you have to know how to drag and drop with both the left and right mouse keys. When I want you to drag I will tell you to drag and you do not release the mouse key until I tell you to drop.
Right click on a blank area of the desktop
In the context window left click on New
Left click on Folder in the next window
This will open a new folder on the desktop with a highlighted box in the name area just press the enter key to accept it as New Folder
Drag with the right mouse button the New Folder first to the Start button - do not release the button yet.
When the Start button activates you will see All Programs - drag the mouse cursor to All Programs - do not release the right mouse button yet.
When the screen opens to the right for All Programs - drag the right mouse into the right side of All Programs.
Now release the right mouse button and then left click on copy here and then you should have New Folder inside the All Program Window.
Next right click on New Folder and left click on Rename and it will open a Rename window
Rename this New Folder to whatever you wish that will make a file to hold more than one of the programs you have like Utilities and press enter.
Now you have a new directory or file holder in All Programs called Utilities.
Now the next part is the fun part. You will get messages that this may affect other users do you want to do this, Just click yes to every one of these.
You are going to have to do this one at a time. You are going to drag with the left mouse button anything that looks like a utility to the Utilities folder you just made. And when you do the Utilities folder will open to one side othe other and you will drop the dragged object into the Utilities folder.
For every folder you drop into Utilities the All Programs list to the right will get smaller and smaller. What you also want to do is figure out what to name the other folders you want to make and put into the All Programs list, and then one at a time start this over again and drag like I said the New Folder to the All Programs List and rename and drag more folders into this one. Eventually you will have this down to a minimum size and you will be amazed.
