Is it possible to make the start menu more wide in Windows 7. Many of my programs names can't fully be displayed in the menu with the default width.

There is a program to do that: Start menu width.

Start menu width is a tool which can change the width of the Start menu in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

It's in Polish but the GUI is very easy to use. You can check the video on the program's web site.
