IE8 pinning everything

When I right clik on IE8 on the taskabar all of my history and recent web pages are being pinned. Is there anyway to turn this auto pinning off?


nvm found it , its under task bar properties uncheck "store and display recently opened items"

No its great now,

it was very annoying opening the pin list with your entire history and recent items listed. I keep certain favs pinned to firefox as well as IE . The task bar setting In question seems to only apply to IE.

Thanks again for the reply , much appreciated
