Why are some folders highlighted in Start>All Programs RRS feed

  • Question

  • It's not a biggy but i'm puzzled as to why some folders (in my case 'Games' and 'Microsoft Silverlight' are two highlighted folders in Start > All Programs. I haven't used these folders in a while and when I open up other folders and run apps, then return to the folder list the used folders are not highlighted.

    Whats with that then? :-)

  • They are recently installed programs. To disable the highlighting, right click the Start button, Properties, click Customize, click to clear Highlight newly installed programs.
