Windows displays the most frequently accessed programs, in left panel of the new Start menu called Most Frequent List. This list makes the program accessibility comfortable for users. But, with this setting you can disable the shortcut of the email program “Microsoft Outlook” in Most Frequent List of Start menu.

“Outlook.exe” is the main executable file of the “Microsoft Outlook” e-mail program, which is a part of Microsoft Office. It is used to read and send email, and download news from newsgroups that interest you. Customization of various necessary options to control spams, add signatures etc., that match your requirements are some of the added features.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, create a string value “NoStartPage”, if this value does not exists, and leave the data blank. This removes the shortcut to the email program.

However, if you want to get the email program shortcut back in Start menu, delete the string value.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
