Windows 7: Windows Start Menu - Not Showing Recently Opened Programs.

Windows Start Menu - Not Showing Recently Opened Programs.

Specs:
-Samsung R580
-Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
-4GB of DDR3 RAM (even though it doesn't feel like it)
-Intel Core i3 Processor - 2.13 GhZ

I finally got it back from being fixed because it was locked with Pheonix FailSafe and now they stopped supporting their servers so I couldn't get the unlock key from their website. So I sent it back to Samsung's Tech fixers (...) and they somehow got incontact with PFS and unlocked. But when I got it back. All documents were gone. Everything was fine except the documents. And this computer was so slow since. I don't know what they did it honestly takes like 15 seconds to open up Chrome. It use to take like 2 seconds being honest.

Anyways when I click on the Start Menu, I have my 5 pined programs but no recently opened programs will show. I've opened plenty of programs since, but no showing.

Right-click the Start button, choose Properties and have a look under Start Menu/Customize.

See what's in the Number of recent programs field and increase the number if necessary.

You're welcome, it's painfully obvious the repairer just wiped your hard drive and re-installed Windows.

Just pleased to know your problem is solved.
