Pretty straightforward question: How do I change the programs that are displayed on the start menu in the recent programs list? My computer has a habit of picking whatever it wants instead of what is most frequently opened or has been opened most recently.

Yeah its set at default. My issue is that the system has a mind of its own on what is my recently used programs, unless that doesn't include the ones I search for. I will try removing stuff and see what happens.
