Some folks have a bunch of things in the startup or start up , start menu folder or menu folder.
The result is that it takes too long to start the computer because too much excess stuff will have to get up to speed.
The whole list of programs has to start up everytime you start the computer.
This slows down everything.
You have to decide what software programs you need to run immediately after starting your computer.
You can start other programs later if you want.
To remove an unwanted item from the Start menu, Right Click on the item and choose, if it comes up, "Unpin from start" from the pop-up menu. The item should go away. Some items will not show the Unpin From Start.
Here is another way ...
To remove "Most Used" from Windows Start Menu - simply right-click on it and select Don’t show in this list.
When you remove a program icon from the Start menu this doesn't remove it from the All Programs list.
It also does not uninstall the program.
It stops it from starting on computer start up.
Click the Start button Right-click the program icon you want to remove from the Start menu, and then click "Remove from this list."
