JSI Tip 0426 - How do I remove the Documents menu from the start button?

You can't remove the Documents menu from the button, but you can keep it empty.

The Documents menu displays the contents of the users profile Recent folder. Simply delete the contents and set the permissions to:

 System   Full Control 
 Creator Owner   Full Control 

You can create a batch file to do this by using the DEL and CACLS commands.
