ToggleView (for Smartphone WM5)

Description: Start Menu Gridview-Listview Toggler for WM5 Smartphones
Requirements: Smartphone WM5
Last updated: July 16, 2006

Finally, i've gotten hold of a Smartphone WM5 device. Now, the first thing i had to learn is how to toggle the view of Start Menu from Gridview to Listview. You can actually do this easily by changing the GridView DWORD value in

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\StartMenu as follows:

  • GridView DWORD Value = 1, for GridView
  • GridView DWORD Value = 0, for ListView

To facilitate toggling between the two views, I have written ToggleView using .netcf. This automatically toggles the Start Menu view from Gridview to Listview (or vise versa).

Just download the cab file from either of the download sites below, install on your Smartphone WM5 device, and go to Start\Accessories to run ToggleView .

  • Download ToggleView (5 kb)
