Disable personalized menus

User Configuration\AdministrativeTemplates\Start Menu & Taskbar


Disables personalized menus.

Windows 2000 personalizes long menus by moving recently used items to the top of the menu and by hiding items that have not been used recently. Users can display the hidden items by clicking an arrow to extend the menu.

If you enable this policy, the system does not personalize menus. All menu items appear and remain in standard order. Also, this policy removes the Use Personalized Menus option so users do not try to change the setting while a policy is in effect.

Personalized menus require user tracking. If you enable the Disable user tracking policy, the system disables personalized menus and ignores this policy.

To disable personalized menus without setting a policy, click Start, click Settings, click Taskbar & Start Menu, and, on the General tab, clear the Use Personalized Menus option.
