    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    Remove apps from start menu

    You can remove the Tile from the Start menu (right click the tile) but there is no option to remove it from the program list.

    Start Menu tiles

    Welcome to TenForums!

    I hadn't realised you could do that! I've just created a Test account to log into and try it out. The answer I found is that you should right-click on the Mail tile on the Desktop and select 'Unpin from Start'. Now right-click on it again and select 'Pin to Start'.

    Once it's back on the Start menu you can right-click on the Desktop one and delete it (or leave it there as as an alternative way to get to Mail, if you wish).
