    When i double click on a desktop icon i find that it puts an icon for that on the startup menu (left of all programs). I really don`t need two of each one. Any clues to stop this. I`ve included a picture of the start up menu.;)http://img133.imageshack.us/my.php?image=startmenumh6.jpg

    terrace - they are there as they are the most recently opened. You can clear the list or change the amount you want stored there. Right click your start button and choose properties. On the start menu tab click customise ,in the middle section programs, it then gives you the option to clear the list and or change the quantity placed there.

    closing thread, please respond to the thread outcaste posted above.

    Also, please do not create duplicate posts, as that can lead to confusion as to who has tried what.

    thanks,
