How to prevent a program from being displayed in the Most Frequently Used Programs list

Windows XP displays a list of most frequently used programs in the Start menu. If you don't want a program to be displayed there, you can prevent it (on a program-by-program basis) by editing the registry. Here's how:

  • Click Start Run.
  • Type the following in the Run box: regedit
  • In the left pane of the registry editor, navigate to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\
  • Click Edit New and select String Value.
  • Name the new string value NoStartPage
  • Leave the data value empty.
  • Close the registry editor.
