start menu shortcuts

Recommended Posts

Analizing "START MENU SHORTCUTS", ccleaner lists shortcuts that are no longer pointing to a valid location (either the original file has been deleted, changed name, or changed its location).

 

I have seen in more than one occasion a program being uninstalled but leaving behind an empty folder (or a folders' tree) in the START MENU (and probably in some other locations too).

 

Many times I think to myself "it should be ok after a restart", but most of the times the empty (tree) folder is there after a reboot.

 

I would like to suggest adding this "cleaning" to the "Window -> System -> Start Menu Shortcuts" option in ccleaner.

 

Or maybe it could be a new cleaner's item, or maybe a new "Tool" option along with the "Uninstall" tool (so to find empty folders, wherever they are).

 

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to Piriform ady4urn.

Well thats something I've never encountered. The unistaller always removes all menu items and the folder for me.

 

Not a bad suggestion for all the idle people out there. ;)
