Customize Start Menu

The start menu is much more customizable than previous versions of Windows. To make the Start menu display only the applications you want, rather than the default determined by Microsoft:

  1. Right-click in an empty section of the Start menu’s left column
  2. Select Properties >> Start Menu >> Customize.
  3. Here you’ll find a list of your most frequently used programs. (XP keeps track of what you use and what you don’t, then updates this list dynamically.)

Note: Don’t want your anyone to know that Pinball, Solitaire, and Quake all make your list? Go to the General tab, click Clear List, and set the counter to zero.
