    In Win2000 the least used Start Menu items were automatically hidden by default. How do I achieve the same in WindowsXP? I think I am missing something really obvious!

    PS - I don't have TweakUI either...

    Jsitke,

    you should have TweakUI installed, many great options in there ! BTW, it's just the same in WinXP as in Win2k, least used entries in start menu are hidden by default!

    I think XP powertoys -TweakUI- do this fairly well. Look at this screenshot (don't be surprised for French entries ;) ).
    Does it answer your request ? I do hope so !

    Cosmin, I have opened the menu/screen as you described, but still no option to hide incative start menu items.

    Daemon, I do not own a copy of TweakUI and will not be getting a copy anytime soon. Thanks anyway!
