    The left admin panel menu should be fixed so that it doesn't scroll on scrolling the page like the top admin menu stay fixed.

    This can be easily done through css:
    #adminmenuwrap { position: fixed !important; }

    check this image

    I hope this will be an nice enhancement from usability point.

    thanks!

    Discussed and discarded, as the menu can be longer than many peoples screens. Remember, plugins add to that menu.

    There are plugins that can do that.

    If the menu item increases beyond the fitted size, all that can be bought under an arrow icon indicating more menu items such that on click generate fly up menu displaying additional items.

    Just my thinking...

    Just as an update, this is being tested in the new WP dashboard UI tests, so ... hey, a year passes, we change ideas :)

    Well, this can make the admin panel look more stunning. But one thing should be considered that this left side admin menu is the most used menu in WordPress admin area for most of the admins. So hence should be made as much user friendly as possible.

    The MP6 plugin makes the admin menu sticky, or you can use the standalone plugin.
