It means that you have more items in the start menu list than the list is set to display. Right click on the start orb and select properties. Then select customize and change the number of items to display to a higher number.

I tried that, but it is all greyed out?:confused:
I think I have the fix :)

I attached two pictures. Follow those and see if that works. Picture on the right first...

Odd, I have 9 in there now...

About how many programs are you looking to put there? Or to display I should say.

Maybe cancel the option of remembering. Then add in the programs that you want pinned to the start menu.

i have the same issue even though all my items are shown and there is room for more , the only way i could stop it was to disable the "list recently open programs" bit. It appeared that because it couldnt fit any "recently opened programs" in there , there wasnt enough room hence the balloon

Agreed. Disable that setting, then just right click on the icons you needed pinned and pin them :)
