Windows XP – Turn Off Your Start Menu Notifications

After you install a program, Windows announces additions to the Start menu with a pop-up balloon and highlights the changes on the menu itself. If you find it distracting, you can turn this notification off.

Right-click the Start button and choose Properties. On the Start Menu tab, click Customize, and then click the Advanced Tab. Clear the ‘Highlight Newly Installed Programs’ check box.

I hope you enjoyed todays Help Desk. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email them to feedback@remotesupportdesk.ca
