After switching to Windows Mobile 6.1, I started exploring it with hungry eyes. The first annoying feature I noticed was the recent programs list. I had to wait for the icons to refresh each time, and I got confused by those icons, as I expected a certain order inside my start menu.

After searching some specialized forums and frowning upon some nasty registry hacking, I decided to dig deeper inside my smartphone’s settings. And there it was, the option to show recent programs.

I unchecked it and the recent programs list hasn’t bothered me ever since.
