Clearing Recent Programs From Start Menu

I have found that if you create subfolders under the Programs folder, then cut and paste all of your icons into the subfolders, then the Recent Programs will stay cleared out.

On my PPC, the Recent Programs only show programs that have been recently run, but only those directly in the Programs folder.

So, you could leave one shortcut (say File Explorer) under the Programs Folder and put all other icons in subfolders. Then, the only program that will show up in the Recent Programs is File Explorer.

Nice little hack

I use a small app to purge the MRU list at soft reset but they still fill up while I'm using the device. I will have to try this out.

Thanks!

Whats the program that you use? Might there be a reg hack to limit the # of programs that do show up?

The only program I use for this is Windows Explorer. I just go to the Windows directory and then to the Start Menu directory. Then, I create subfolders (Applications, Multimedia, etc...). Then I move all of my shortcuts into the folders.

I have found that the Recent Programs area only populates programs run directly from the Start Menu.

So, you could control the number of applications show display in Recent Programs by limiting the number of shortcuts directly in the Start Menu folder.

I, personally, have removed all of the shortcuts from the Start Menu folder and placed them into my own subfolders. I even took the shortcuts out of the Programs folder and moved them into own created folders. Then, I hid the Programs folder.

Now, when I click the Start button, I have 5 categorized folders and all of my shortcuts are in there. I do not see the Programs folder because I no longer need it.

The only drawback is that when I install a new program, I must go into Windows Exploer and move the shortcut to a subfolder so that I can see it from the Start Menu. But it's a small price to pay.
