    Sort and remove icons from Start menu (Vista Bus SP1)

    These 2 questions both refer to Vista's Classic Start Menu.
    How does one remove the 'Documents' and the 'Settings' folders from the Start Menu?
    How does one prevent the Start Menu icons from re-sorting on computer start up?
    Regards,
    Peter

    Re: Sort and remove icons from Start menu (Vista Bus SP1)

    This should apply to the Classic Start Menu:

    Re: Documents item
    1. Right-click on the Taskbar and choose: "Properties"
    2. Click on the "Start Menu" tab
    3. Click on "Customize"
    4. Scroll down to "Documents" and click on "Don't display this item"
    5. "OK" your way out.

    I'm not sure what you are referring to re: "Settings"?

    Re: re-sorting
    1. Repeat above
    2. Scroll down to "Sort All Programs Menu by name
    3. Uncheck it
    5. "OK" your way out.

    None of those options appear in the CLASSIC Start Menu.
    'Settings' is a folder or similar name just below 'Documents'.

    The destructions were for the Start Menu PROPERTIES, which you access by right-clicking on the Taskbar.

    IF <--- you are meaning that none of those options appear in the Start Menu PROPERTIES, then I can't help you any further since I don't use the Classic Start Menu. Perhaps Dave, Joe or Hans or ??? have some insight on this question. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    None of those options appear in the Start Menu Properties.
    I think I will start a new post with the question is there any way to have the icons I want in Vista Start Menu and only the icons I want.
    If you know could you answer that post.
    Thanks anyway.
    Regards,
    Peter
