    How do I remove (but keep installed) items from the start, programs menu in
    Win 2K?

    I dont want to delete the folder or its contents, only remove the program
    from view on the programs list. When deleting I get "modifying this folder
    will affect all users who log on to this computer, do you wish to continue?"
    Do I?

  5. You won't remove the program folder or files, just the reference to it

    Lee, Roger,

    If you have a lot to delete, you can right-click the Start button, select
    "Explore" and it opens in an Explorer windows. Some things may be installed
    in "All Users", so the same can be done - right-click the Start button, and
    select "Explore All Users".

    And like Roger says, removing the shortcuts from the start menu will not
    delete or damage the functionality of the program in any way (unless you
    forget where it's installed <g>).
