How to Remove Run from the Start Menu

on Friday, August 7, 2009

There are actually two ways of doing it. One is a very simple one, the other a registry tweak..

How to Remove Run from the Start Menu
1. Easiest Way. Right click the start button and click the Properties. You will get "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" menu.

Click "Customize". In the next window which is named "Customize Start Menu", deselect the "Display Run". Voila!!!!

2. The second method is editing your registry. From Start menu, click on Run. Type in "regedit" without quotes and press enter.

Now go to :HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Add a DWORD named "NoRun" (without quotes). Double click "NoRun" and assign the value "1" (without quotes) to it. You can restore the same by changing the value from 1 to 0.
