Removing Submenus on Shortcuts Pinned to Start Menu

Hi guys, it's really annoying to have submenus on items pinned to the start menu. Is there a way I can get rid of them ?

Thank you.

I'm not sure what you are asking. What exactly is pinned that you don't want?
Try this; right click Start/Properties/Customize and sort through there.

The arrows is not the problem. It is the 'fly outs'. Did you do what I suggested.

Put what I have highlighted in red to 0 that will remove the arrows.
