    You can still type the name in search. If you want a lean set of apps that you use frequently, then make them tiles and they're instantly accessable (pin to start menu).

    There is a number of things you could do.
    Over and above what @Mystere already mentioned, you could customize the list from their source folder,
    you could try a 3rd party start menu,
    you could create a custom toolbar to suffice as a menu,

    depends how much work you want to put into it.
    Unfortunately MS doesn't offer any simple customization avenues for their, (in my opinion), poorly designed Start Menu.

    You can't get rid of it but, you can customize it.
    Here is an example of my Menu, I rename appropriately what I want to show and hide the rest:

    yeah still need info on exactly how i get rid of it! saying i could do this or do that does not really help me in fixing the problem or knowing what to search for and finding a relatively recent search result that actually provides an answer!

    Well, you need to give some idea of what you'd like to accomplish.
    I'm not going to spend 30 or 40 minutes composing a mini customization tutorial then have you post back: "Naw, I don't wanna do that!"

    I understood what you want, but you can't do that out of the box. I was offering you alternatives, and also correcting you when you said you couldn't type into search to find apps, as that still works just as it always has.
