    Anyone know of a way to lock the star menu so it doesn't keep adding shortcuts everytime you use a program that isn't already on there? Thanks in advance:)

    Usually, when installing a new program, it will have the option on whether or not to place the item in the Start Menu. If not, you can go into Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and remove any Start Menu entry.
    And Welcome to TSC!

    Thanks for the welcome junker. I know a few ways to remove Start menu shortcuts, but I wanted to know a way to lock it. Everytime I use any program thats not on the Star menu, my computer puts a shortcut for it on the Start menu....tired of deleting start menu shortcuts

    You can simply delete the extra shortcuts, it's easy.
