    how to clear the recent programs in the start menu

    I'm just full of questions tonight

    How can I clear the recently ran programs in the start menu.

    I cannot find any way of clearing them!

    Thanks

    It's in the registry. I can't remember exactly where, but I remember it was easy to find.

    My bad, I did a soft reset, they cleared, and I posted. But I can't repeat it. Must be a time issue, because it clears itself from time to time.

    Every time I soft reset, they seem to go away.

    I noticed the same thing. Most of the time they go away but not always.

    thanks for the link!

    GMT-0400? I hear ya. I live in GMT-0700... and usually sleep 0100-0300

    The rest of my time I do my best to be as helpfu as I can.

    God only helps those who help themselves. I'm not that good. I help those who have tried "Search" and failed

    Good night to you, Sir,

    interesting, although if there was a simple reg tweak or a tiny program to do that, it would be nice too, I'm trying to avoid having too much fluff on this device
