    Windows 7 Start menu recent application history

    Hi

    I'm looking to set the Windows 7 start menu to remember recent applications opened but having not found the GP setting myself I'm a little stuck. I've been told that Microsoft have removed the ability to set this in Windows 7 in this way. I find this hard to believe and was wondering whether anyone can point me in the right direction.

    I've found the "Remove frequent programs list from the Start Menu" setting but this is a legacy setting and is already set to disabled anyway.

    Hi.
    It works for our staff. If you are on about the list of 5 recently loaded application on the left of the start menu?

    Will look for you in the settings tomorrow

    That's the badger. I know where the option is to set this manually, it's the GP setting I'm after!!

    If anyone's interested you can control this using GPP->Start menu. Preferences really are making my life easier!!
