Hi, that's a great help - thank you, but my problem is that the number of displayed recent programs is fixed at four, whatever number is entered in the Customize Start Menu area. If I delete one from the list, another recently opened program immediately appears in the list.
I have tried varying the size of icons, varying the number of programs to be displayed from 0 to 30, rebooting, what else should I try??
I hope someone still reads this and can post some ideas.
