Windows XP Pro Start Menu

The start menu has a list of recently used programs. Just like the list of recently used documents?

However I noticed that after using certain programs they are not entered into this list.

Does anyone know how to fix this so that it always displays a list of recently used programs?

sometimes the programs go down past the bottom and overlap. So maybe you could try delete someo n the top and see if it is at the bottom. Just a guess.

One of the options in Powertoys Tweakui is to choose which programs are entered into the Recently used list, and in Properties/Start Menu/Customise/General you set the maximum number of entries that appear in this list.

Rennaissance - you guessed right! I can simply delete those unwanted programs from the list. Although that will probably just be a temporary solution.

leo49 - interesting. I had never heard of powerToys before. I will check it out.

Cheers guys.
