Thread: What Does This Mean!?!?!

  1. #1

    Default Start Menu Icons change position

    I think I have been told what causes this problem already, but I just need
    clarity and one of you experts will clear this up in no time.



    Every time I turn on my laptop PC, in the "Start Menu", it seems that all of
    the Icons have changed positions or some new icons have taken the place of
    previous Icons that were there the previous time I used the laptop. It seems
    like whatever program or programmes I was using last before I shut down the
    PC, both program(mes) and their Icons seem to show in the start menu.

    Can anyone tell me what causes this strange phenomenon!?!? And how I can
    fix it?

    Ok andy t


    The left part of the start menu display shows a list of you most
    recently used programs, the order will change depending on how many
    programs you run and which ones.

    the programs you run most will move up the list and less used programs
    will drop down the list. if you start using a new program or using one
    more often then it will be added to this list and the least used program
    will drop off the list.

    This is by design so that the programs you need most will always be
    available and the list will reflect usage changes as they develop.

    saying this you may switch off this feature by right clicking on the
    start orb and selecting properties if you then remove the tick next to
    "store and display a list of recently opened programs".

    If you select customise on this menu there is an entry on the next
    screen which allows you to adjust how many items are kept on this list.

    Also at the top of the left list of recently used programs are
    permanent programs which do not move. you may add items here by dragging
    a shortcut to the start orb or dragging an item into the top area from
    the changing part.

    A working method for using this function is to add those programs you
    use most to the fixed part of the list and to set the bottom variable
    part to a lower number than the default.

    hope this clarifies things

    You computer may have a trojan or a adware on it... You can download Hijack this from FileHippo.com - Download Free Software and post it on the forums... The administrator will ask you to remove some of these keys then you can use ur computer normally again.!
