    Start Menu (frequently used list) (Windows XP Home)

    In Office 2000, they brought in frequently used lists (in all of their wisdom!?!) - which I promptly turned off. How can you turn off the same function for the XP Start Menu? I want to see all programs available - but I can't seem to figure out how...

    Please help.

    My XP Pro has an "All Programs" button at the bottom left, just after I click on the Start button. Isn't this what you want? But I'm a Classic person, so maybe you don't get it.

    Try <A target="_blank" HREF="http://www.jsiinc.com/subl/tip5700/rh5776.htm">5776

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    With your Start menu open, right click on the title bar, or some blank area, and select properties (the only choice given, so why not go straight there?). In properties click Customize

    Right-click your 'Start' button, select 'Properties', click 'Start Menu' tab, click the 'Customize' button, click the 'General' tab, in the 'Programs' section in the middle, click the down arrow next to 'Number of programs on Start menu:' to '0' and then click the 'Clear List' button.

    Now, click on the 'Advanced' tab, go to the 'Recent documents' section at the bottom and clear the checkmark from the 'List my most recently opened documents' and then push the 'Clear List' button.

    Finally, click 'OK', then 'OK' again and you will be where you want. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
