    More details would be helpful to diagnose.

    Are we talking about icons or the entire shortcuts?

    Are we talking about the System, Personal or All Programs area?

    Post a screenshot if youre not sure...
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Click on the Start button, the Start Menu opens, right-click on the Start Menu -> Properties -> Store and dislay recently opened programs in the Start Menu.
    With the other option you can use the Recent Items + jump lists in the Taskbar.
    If you want to manually add & pin Icons, go to All Programs, right-click on a Program shortcut -> Pin to Start Menu

    If you click Properties -> Customize: you can edit your Start Menu + select how many programs you want to display in the Start Menu, or how many items you want to show in the jump lists.
