    I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have the classic start menu. Now I want the all programs to only show what I use frequently like it did. With the arrow at the bottom to open ALL the programs. I hope you understand what I mean. How can this be accomplished?
    Thanks, Debbie

    I do not use classic menu so perhaps the following steps will not work for you.
    1. Right click a blank spot of the start menu and select Properties.
    2. Click the Start Menu tab.
    3. Under Privacy, you can uncheck/untick Store and Display recently opened programs in the start menu. That will eliminate the list of about 10 items showing. (left side)

    You can also click the customize button and go through that to eliminate items from the right pane.
