How do I prevent windows from hiding various menu items on my menus? I have
to go to the bottom of the menu and click the arrows to get the rest of the
menu. This is really annoying as there is one particular menu item in
outlook that I use all the time (send&receive a particular account) which is
always hidden.

on the window that apperas on the left do the following
the classic start menu will be selected.

You can turn this off in the Options for each Office application.

Then your start menu is not hiding items is it. Look in Outlook's options. In Word Tools - Customise - Options. Note this seting in one office program apply to all.
