    I have started to like the Windows 7 start menu with folders that collapse.How
    do you keep that? I installed it for other reasons. Mainly the up arrow. I
    miss the up arrow. I just don't understand why MS would not have it. Are there
    are other ways to go up in a folder?

    You can uninstall the start menu component. Simply run the installer again,
    click on the Change button, and uncheck the start menu.
    BTW, MS has since seen the error of their ways. Win8 has an Up button :)

    I found a way to bring back the Windows 7 start menu by going in into
    programs-->Start menu settings. Then under the "Windows Start Menu" tab,
    uncheck "Cascading all programs. It's kind an odd way of doing it. You always
    have to look around everywhere.
