do you want to delete a shortcut in your start-menu?

Startup Programs - Change

right-click and delete

or do you mean the most commonly used progs on the left-hand side?

right-click and 'remove from this list'

learn to use right-click - it's very useful in a lot of places...

The old way does not work. No current reference to a new way.

Customize the Start menu

The old way

Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\ where ‘program’ is the name of the executable you do not want to appear on the list.


Click Edit, point to New, and select String Value.

Type NoStartPage for the value name.

EDIT: Mickey, no offence was meant by my comment above.

You could use a sledgehammer and set the "Show Recent" value to 0, killing them all.

Another hammer - replace the Start Menu
