Do anybody know how to hide the settings and help and support folders in the classic startmenu?
I think you can take it off with Tweakui by microsoft. Go to there site and look up power toys under Windows xp downloads.
Cant find it :huh:
The setting to hide Help and Support from Start Menu in TweakUi is under Explorer.
If you want to do it manually you have to create new DWord values under this registry key and give them the value 00000001 , log off and log in again for the changes to take effect.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer]
(This will hide Help and Support)
(These will hide the Settings button. Side effects: the taskbar right click menu "properties" and the keyboard shortcut "Windows key +E" will also be disabled)
I have attached a regfile (rename from .txt to .reg) with these settings.
You learn something new every day. Just learned that attached files aren't attached when you preview the reply. So now here it is:
But isn't there another way?
Cause there's no more possibility to acces the Taskbar properties...
tweak-xp or magictweak have options to do that, check them out.
Sorry seems to be the only way. Couldn't find an option to remove the settings button either in Tweak XP, Xteq, Winguides Tweak Manager or anywhere else.
found a way myself...
Just hack the explorer.exe wit ResHacker
Now I've more than I wanted...
Cause there you can fully reorder your startmenu...
