I was wondering if anyone could help me out with Start Menu feature in Windows XP.
I want to know how to customize icons on the left side of the start men (the part with frequently used programs).
How can I add and remove programs at my free will from there?
Thank you
Samantha

thank you for your reply,
my problem is actually more about "unpinning" stuff from the menu. I was hoping that I could find something like in previouse versinos of Windows where going through explorer I could locate a folder in my personal setting that holds all icons for the start menu.
I dont know if the same can be done in XP, if so let me know
thank you again

If you want to delete an item from the list just right click on it and remove it from the list. If you want to change the icon then right click on it and go to Properties and change the Icon from there.

Open the program, then when it's in the recent open part, drag the icon to the other section.

I've found the easiest way to manage the program list is to just use the old style menu. Then you pretty much have complete control over what goes on there.

I should have read a little more carefully. Open Windows explorer> Documents and Settings> *User Name* AND All Users> Start Menu.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
