Start Programs MRU list missing

  Howard's Way 22:43 06 Jun 2004

I am using Windows ME and until recently when I went to Start and then programs it used to display a Most Recently Used list of programs first then all the programs.

But now the MRU list is not displayed just the list of all the programs. I have looked in settings, Task bar and Start menus but cannot find anything that resembles a MRU list for programs.

Anyone got any ideas?

not sure about win ME but in xp its

right click taskbar/properties/advanced/start menu/customise/advanced and tick 'list my most recentlt opened documents'

some anti spyware programs like spybot can clear this list.have you ever used anything like this maybe?

Thanks for the tip huggyg71 but that is Okay for the documents, but I am talking about programs. If you go start/programs you should get a small list of programs that have been used recently but I do not get this anymore just a complete list of programs.

its the same i think for the most recent programs displayed next to the all programs menu in not sure of the layout in win me.

these are also cleared after i run spybot search and destroy for example if i allow it to clear these.

do you use spybot?

open it and click settings then untick: 'usage tracking' and 'tracks uti' and it should leave these alone in future.

i think

I don't have spy bot but it has started working again I checked Use personlized menus and it is back.

Thanks for your help huggyg71
