Solved How to remove Tasks lists from Start Menu?

April 4, 2015 at 17:55:58
Specs: Win 7
On my Start Menu, hovering the mouse pointer over Internet Explorer,
Mozilla Firefox, Windows Media Player, and Getting Started opens a
side pane containing a list of "Tasks" the program can run. Is there
any way to eliminate these lists? CCleaner has an advanced options
setting named "Enable Windows Jump List Tasks" which removes its
own task list from the Start Menu.

✔ Best Answer
Right-click on the "Start" globe and choose "Properties".
Under "Start menu" tab, click "Customise".

Scroll down and untick:
"Open submenus when I pause on them with the mouse pointer"

Click 'OK' & 'OK' again.

Now the "Tasks pane" will appear only if you click your mouse on the arrow next to the pinned program in the Start Menu.

Aha! That will probably be an acceptable tradeoff. Thanks!

No, wait! It's better than I thought! It stops the "All Programs" menu
from opening when the mouse pointer is on it, too! Yay!!!

Jeff, an excellent option to control what software runs on your PC is winpatrol.

Have a gander. It's really effective.
