Under the start-programs ...

is there a way to clean up this list of all the programs. I would like to
remove the items from this list that have the shortcut on the desktop.

Plus, alot of programs I dont use all of the time. Thanks.

Start/Settings/Taskbar/..Properties/[General] (X)Use Personalized Menus

After a couple days or so the entries you don't click on will start hiding.

Or right-clickdelete

Or make another folder in there and drag them in

right-click then choose Delete from the menu? Still think that unless
you're editing Start/Programs for somebody else you should at least just
create a folder in there and drag-n-drop the shortcuts into it.

well if you can find Taskbar Properties by either right-clicking on the
Taskbar or from Start/Settings, Advanced Tab and push the Advanced button,
you'll be able to edit the Start/Programs tree as a directory.

If no luck there we'll dive into the registry and see if we can get that
right-click to work... this is Windows Millenium Edition (WinME), right?
Are you the only User ?

Yes, the os is WinMe.

I can get into the tree, however, when I delete the item it wants to send
the program to the recycle bin.

What I am interested in is just removing the item from the dispay under the
programs.
