Users never cease to amaze me :)  You say these are novice users, yet
they apparently know how to 'pin' programs to the list so they always

that's only available by right clicking on an item in the Apps list? Did you show them how to do this or did they figure it out for
The feature is sort of discoverable for people who have used the menu editing in previous versions of Windows. The entries above the separator are static, while the ones below vary depending on your usage. To pin an app, simply drag it from below the separator to above.
