    I have been using the royale theme for xp and it worked perfectly before i installed sp2. but after installing sp2 on the start menu it does not list recently used applications.

    i have went into the properties and looked for the settings to change it but couldnt find it..


    anyone know of a fix ?

    Thanks

    Look at the attachment. Have you tried that? If it still doesn't work, then open the different programs 2-3 times and see if they add up.

    If you right click an executable file or a shortcut, do you have the option to "pin to start menu"? And does the shortcut show up in the area marked "this area" when you do?

    i believe that this is a problem with the royale theme and sp2

    i do have the options set per ~bk's suggestion it always have been set like that

    and when i do pin to start menu it lists it under the internet explorer and outlook and there is no bar to seperate it from the recently used items which is usually listed below that.

    ok i just installed the royale theme its its working fine with me, i think i know what the problem is for u, did u just run ad-aware and clear the mru? thats the folder with a mangifying glass, its not spyware, its ur recently opend apps and documents on the start menu, it will clear the list, and the programs wont start coming back until u restart the computer, so try restarting it and opening a program 3 or 4 times see if it comes back

    here is my screenie, i really think its ad-aware that mixed u up, cuz i did that but i knew why it happend, then the programs wouldnt come back into the start menu until i restarted my pc

    ohh ps, i forgot to say that i really like this theme, its a really nice "Remix" of the original xp theme, cuz i get really bored of that theme, but they seemed to know that people do and make it a lil more smooth i guess

    R-click taskbar, properties, Start Menu tab, Customize...
    Centre section 'Programs' you can set number of recently used programs to list and/or clear the list.
