All Programs - Some are in a Different Color ?

It's no biggie, but I'm wondering if anyone knows why some of the
programs I've added to my new computer with XP SP2 have the normal
black on grey lettering and others have black on yellow lettering in
the All Programs listing bar(s) ? Is there any way to have them all
the same ? I'm new to XP.

Thanks in advance.

Freshly installed programs are highlighted. That will vanish when you use
the program or explore the program folder via the start -> all programs ->
etc

Get a large cinder block and bash your computer real good. Make sure
you bash around the area of where your harddrive(s) are located.


Control Panel > Taskbar and Start Menu > Advanced tab > uncheck
Highlight newly installed programs.

And if you are new to WinXP, maybe you should consider doing a little
research on your own. Buy a book. Go the your local public library and
check out a book. Steal a book. Find an ugly fat chick that knows
WinXP and give it to her good and hard until you know what you are
doing.

There wasn't an "Advanced tab" But the highlighting did go away when I
actually used the program as suggested by the other poster. Maybe my
Billyware is defective ?

I'd probably be lucky to find Win 3.1 or '95 at my local library.

Nah, I like 'em Ann Coulter thin. The closer to the bone the sweeter
the meat :^)

Thanks for trying anyway.

No, I just left out a logical step, but you weren't bright enough to
figure it out.

If you don't look, you'll never really know.

You can't have everything handed to you on a silver platter.

But you sound like the typical Republican. Stupid, and content to stay
that way!

I love it! Sometimes it just amazes me how people cant even try to figure
something out for themselves at all.

I found it, I actually overlooked it.

The last time I was there ( about 6 months ago ) they still had Win
3.1 and MS-DOS books on the shelves. Along with some great Commodore
64 and TRS-80 books ;)

Calling me a Republican, now that is an insult ;)

Thanks for your help.
