The program Start Menu Tuner will easily solve your problem of finding a particular program on the start list when there are too many of them. Use it to create program categories you need and sort your programs by them. You will do it easily and visually.
Features: The start menu starts growing as you use your machine more and more. Beyond a point it will become so cluttered that you`ll not be able to find the program you want in that random jumble. If things could be organized by category it`ll be easier to find an item within this category as these lists will be much shorter to look through. This utility does exactly that and lists the start menu programs in two columns. First the category column and next the individual ones are listed. Categories are created as per your need and you identify the programs that go into each category one time.
When finding a particular program it is much easier now. Select the category and then pick the program you want from a much shorter list when you open the menu. Use it to create program categories you need and sort your programs by them. You will do it easily and visually. You will spend minimum effort even if you are new to computers. Straightening the list is drag & drop easy. Drag a program from the left-hand list to any other category. You can create new categories, rename them. When you delete a category, it gets dismissed. Items from this category are not deleted, but moved to the general list. You can change the order of categories, use the Up and Down buttons for that.
Overall: This is a very useful utility. It can really save a lot of confusion.
