@Yezpahr, I moved it to ChitChat because it is not related to the Start Menu or Explorer.

For taskbar modifications, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker (http://rammichael.com/7-taskbar-tweaker) is your best option.

Is your menu too tall and taking the full height of the screen due to DPI or font size set too high? In that case items in the right column in Windows 7 style near the bottom (just above the Shutdown button) might get hidden.

There should be an "Apps" item in the right column of the Start Menu if you've enabled the option to display apps as a menu from the Customize Start Menu tab. It should list all your apps. Also any apps you pin will appear directly in the main menu outside of any folder.

Don't use negative sizes for the Start button. Also, 0 means use the width of the image (actual bitmap size). You should use a size like 30 or 40 to fit it inside your taskbar.
