    Category View in Start Menu

    Has anyone played with the Category View yet? This is one of the options in Personalize My Device\Start Menu View. I typically use List View, but I like the "eye candy" factor of Category View. Practically speaking, I would like to customize it a bit (as I am not sure I agree on how the all the apps are "categorized") I see what appears to be an xml document in \Program Files\Motorola\StartMenuView. I will try to play with this over the weekend. Anyone else familiar with this?

    I personally haven't tried editing anything being I'm justg etting use to a Smartphone after only owning is about a week and never having one before. However I have mine set in this mode and really like it. I agree tho it does need some editing as they place things oddly IMO. If you figure anythign out plz let us know. If I get a littel more accustom to this device I'll help in any way I can. Spent to long toying with dumbphones over the years.

    Use the right navigation wheel to move to next page.

    If you go to

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Shell/StartMenu/order

    And delete everything then reboot. It will put all the programs in the start menu in alphabetical order or you can put then in any order you wish.
    This is one of the first things I do after a Master Reset.

    So this Start menu is a flash app which resides in the /Windows directory (I think): startmenu.swf.

    I have no experience with Flash, so not sure where to go with respect to trying to customize.

    Got Right Menu working.

    ===================
    I installed Right Menu. Copied the default and left menu setting frome my Q9m/c. Adjusted the hot key delay. Works perfectly with the Dynamic Layout and Catagory View. Buttons work for both options with time delay!!

    Did you know if you are using category view you can just start typing the name of the link and it will do an immediate search?

    Are you referring to an app that turns the home right softkey into a customizable popup menu? I have been searching for this for a few days...if you could pm me or post how to get it, would be much appreciated :smile:

    Thanks for the quick reply. I found that site but wasn't able to download the trial. Guess I'll have to buy it but thanks for posting that it works.

    Get the trial ........

    Get the trial ........You can get the trial version from the apps link in n99hockey' s signature. It only lasts 7 days. Sometimes it takes a few days to get the full version after you pay for it!! You can not remove it with the "remove Apps" option on the phone...follow the instructions on the site!!
