    Is it possible to remove icons from Windows XP start menu (to look more like Vista). Just icon not the shortcuts as shown on screenshot:

    The only way you'd do that is if you found a theme with a compact start menu as far as i remember

    I would start by going to Control Panel

    Open Taskbar and Start Menu option

    Click the Start Menu tab

    Click the Customize button

    and go from there.

    Go to stardock's website or wherever you got your skinning utility from and post it up on their forums, they might be able to shed some light on it

    Change the start menu to the classic version.
