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 utility “System Information” in Most Frequent List of Start menu.

“System Information” tool is included with all versions of Windows. This tool is used to gather information about your computer, to diagnose issues with your computer, or to access other tools that are included with Windows. System Information is accessed by clicking on Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and clicking on System Information. “Msinfo32.exe” is the executable program for this tool.

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 utility.

However, if you want to get the utility shortcut back in Start menu, delete the String value.
