    Ok, you installed a 3rd party software to give you a Windows 7 type start menu ?

    Does it have a properties menu where you can add or subtract items, just like in Windows 7 ?

    If not then you`re stuck with it on the list.

    I remember installing Classic shell on the TP and it did not have all the options Windows 7 had as far as what you could add or remove.

    I actually never thought of the "classic shell" software I installed, to make it easier to transfer from win7 to win 10

    Thank you all for your help. I didn't realize that the windows 7 simulator in "Classic Shell" had that, and that it was an option, that i could do, and i have removed it.

    Thank you all!!
