Start Menu

Greetings,
Is there a way to restrict what programs appear on my start menu?
Seem every time I use a program it appears on the lower left hand side of the start menu.

Thanks,
Jack

Jack, Right click your Start button, choose Properties, under the Start Menu tab click the Customize button, under the General tab change the number of programs on Start Menu to 0 (zero) click OK/Apply/OK.

Wow Thanx,

that has been driving me bats (always get a bubble saying I have more start programs than can be shown that wouldn't disappear no matter what).

Got rid of that bubble and cut down my start icons to a manageable (and controllable) number!
