  • Hello,

     

    After installing new programs into Windows operating system, the personalized Start Menu will highlight these newly install programs, with a notification bubble indicating there is new program just installed pointing at the Start button.

     

    If you don't want to highlight those newly installed programs, we might perform the following steps to turn off and disable the feature.

     

    1.Click on Start button -> select Properties on the context menu. In Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog window, click on Start Menu tab.

    2.Click on Customize button of Start Menu, and uncheck the check box for Highlight newly installed programs option.

    3.Click OK button to make Start Menu does not highlight new programs installed.

     

    Good Luck!

    Andy
