'Documents' menu choice". I am not sure but it looks as though you want
NoteTab to clear this item. Several of the items on the Start menu pop up
are things that are set up by Windows. They do not exist as folders or
files in many cases but as entries in the system registry. I do not know
just off hand if it can be done but NoteTab does have a set of commands for
editing the registry keys. I don't recommend it myself but you could make
a backup copy of your registry then search for the keys that control what
the "Documents" item displays and try manually editing them to see what
happens and hope that it does not crash anything. If it works for you then
you could use:
^$GetRegValue("[BaseRoot\]Key[:Name]")$ (added in v4.8)
^!SaveRegValue [BaseRoot\]Key[:Name]=Value (added in v4.8)
^!ClearRegValue [BaseRoot\]Key[:Name] (added in v4.8)
to make a clip to do what you want. Again, I'm not so sure it is worth it.
- Hi Larry,
I was trying to write a Clip which would clear the Documents
listing on the W98SE Start menu. This is done normally by clicking
Start, Settings, Tasks & Start Menu, the Start Menu Programs tab, and
Clear in the Documents Menu section.
But I agree, it doesn't seem feasible, nor worth any more effort.
Actually, it is really quite quick and easy to clear the data with a
few mouse-clicks. It's just my inclination to try to "Clipize"
Thanks for taking the time to lend a hand.
