To remove the Favorites submenu from your Start Menu do these steps:
  • Click on start, then run, and type regedit and press the ok button.

  • Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

  • In the right pane, right-click on an empty space and select New and then DWORD Value.

  • Name the new value NoFavoritesMenu

  • Then double-click on this new value and set it to 1.

  • Exit Regedit

  • Reboot and your computer and it should no longer be visible.
In the future if you would like the Favorites to appear on your Start Menu again, navigate back to that key and change the value of NoFavoritesMenu to 0.
