    Is there a way to have your Start Menu not show recent programs?

    In properties I already that selection unchecked, but they're still there.

    Try this
    * Go to Start -> Run -> type regedit and enter
    * Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer
    * Create a DWORD value with the key NoRecentDocsHistory and set the value to 1
    * Done, you have just disable recent documents history.
    * Please logoff or restart your pc to get the recent documents history take effect.

    That sounds a bit too permanent.

    Because then it would look like it does now, instead of in the second pic. (Which is a Photoshop'ed image of what I want it to look like)

    I could put it as 'Classic', but fuck that.

    I looked into this a bit more, and it will only stop XP from adding items to the list. It will not remove it altogether.

    This red fix will do the trick, just save it somewhere and run it. Then reboot and it should be good to go. http://windowsxp.mvps.org/reg/hiderecentdocs.reg

    Show or hide the "My recent documents" from XP Start menu



    Introduction


    The My Recent Documents folder on the Windows XP Start menu displays a list of files and documents that you most recently used.
    Removing the Recent Documents link from XP Start Menu

    To remove the My Recent Documents folder from XP Start Menu, try this:
    • Right-click Start, and then click Properties
    • Click Customize
    • Click the Advanced tab
    • Under Recent documents, uncheck List my most recently opened documents
    • Click OK, and then OK.
    Equivalent registry value
    • Open Registry Editor and navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced
    • Backup the key to a file. See Backing up.. article
    • Set the value of Start_ShowRecentDocs accordingly.
    Value of 0 - List my most recently opened documents is disabled
    Value of 2 - List my most recently opened documents is enabled
    Automate the above with REG file

    Download this REG file sets Start_ShowRecentDocs registry value to 0
    Undo REG file which sets Start_ShowRecentDocs registry value to 2 (default)
