Taskbar & Start Menu Tips

Hiding Start Menu Folders

It is surprisingly easy how you want the some certain folders in the start menu ( the StartUp menu for example ) hidden up nicely. All you need to do is to right-click the StartUp folder on the start menu. Right-click it and when a pop-up menu appears, choose Properties. Change the attribute to hidden. Since the start-menu won't display hidden items, it won't be displayed.

This is very useful when you want to unclutter the start menu temporarily and don't want to remove them. To restore them? No problem, just open the C:\Windows\Start Menu folder ( or right-click the start button and select Open ) and change the attributes again.
