How to remove recently used programs

    I recently switched from Classic Shell (Classic Menu) 2.0.0 to 3.6.1.

    I'm using Windows Classic Menu and now I get a list of recently opened
    programs/documents above the Programs Menu. I didn't have this in 2.0.0. Is
    there any way to get rid of it?

    Uncheck "Show recent programs" in the Special Items tab.

    I have version 3.6.2

    Under . . .
    Special Items
    Show recent Programs
    Max recent programs
    Show recent programs on top
    Shortcuts for the recent programs / No shortcuts . . .

    These settings are related, but not grouped together, and it took me a while to figure this out.

    I put a dot next to "No shortcuts," but it didn't do anything.

    I un-checked "Show recent program on top," and I thought that fixed it, but then I saw it was putting them below.

    I then figured out that I needed to un-check "Show recent Programs"

    I'm glad I found this program though, it really improves Windows 8, and I think it's even an improvement over the Microsoft versions, with all of the option settings.
