Intellimenu shortens the length of menu by adding an arrow at the bottom. Complete menu items can be displayed by expanding the menu. For this, go to start > run menu, enter regedit and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a string value favintellimenus in the right panel, if this value does not exist. Now, right-click and modify its value to yes which can use intellimenu with favorites. However, if you want to show all the items back, change the value data to no or delete the added value. The changes take effect after a restart or logoff. When editing the registry it is highly recommended to run a quick scan for optimization, you can test your system now for free.
