Clear the "Store and display recently opened programs in the Start Menu"
Posted on 2011-09-19
I am setting up a Windows 7 deployment image and I've noticed that the first time a user signs into Windows 7 the start menu is clogged up with a list of software the was "recently opened", even though this is a brand new user profile. I know that you can clear this list by right-clicking on the start button, removing the check mark beside "Store and display recently opened programs in the Start Menu", and then clicking Ok. Then all you need to do is go back and put the check mark back to enable the feature again.
What I need to know is can you clear this list programmatically through a runonce login script?
