I'd love to be able to remove all dividers from the classic menu.
Here's what I have set up:
Is it possible to remove that divider above Programs?
There is always a separator between the contents of the Start Menu folder and
the custom items. The only way to have no separator is to have everything be a
Well, another way is to create a new skin with a fully transparent separator.
Only problem with having all items custom, is that Programs is in two
So that top separator is built into the skin? That's ok then, I can live with
it for now.
For the Windows Aero and Windows Basic skins, why isn't that separator in baby
blue color so it looks a lot more pleasant?
I just ventured to edit the Aero skin, deleting what I thought was the

I didn't see any other candidates. Could you advise on what I might reshack to

Oh wow. I had no idea there was a Custom Command. You shouldn't hide it at the
bottom like that.
This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks, Ivo.
