Windows 7: Start Menu Item's Arrow ONLY Clickable

Start Menu Item's Arrow ONLY Clickable

When I open the start menu and mouseover an item that has a right facing arrow, it automatically opens up the Recent Items pane on the right side.

I don't want it to open upon mouseover, but only on-click.

Is this tweak possible?

Hello Merlin,

Unchecking the item boxed in red below in Customize Start Menu will do this for you.
