I am having trouble removing titles from the apple dropdown.
Any Advice would be great
are you talking about the blue apple in the top left? and are you having trouble removing/clearing the recent items in that menu?
Are you referring to "Recent Items"?
I am reffering to the blue apple, yes
the menu seems to cluttered and I wanted to clear it up
This is cluttered to you?
There are only two the user can affect: Location and Recent Items.
Recent Items will let you clear the entire menu. Select "Clear Menu" at the bottom of the list.
Location can be changed through the Network Preference Pane (Location > Network Preferences or System Preferences > Network). Then, click on the "Location" menu, and select "Edit Locations". You can modify the list there.
I Just wanted to get rid of things I don't use e.g. Recent Items, Force Quit and Location
Yes, and to avoid it to clutter up again you can set how many of the last Applications, Documents and Servers the list will show in System Preferences -> Appearance.
For Recent Items: Set all the above mentioned options to None.
The two others aren't trivial to remove, and I would just leave them there...
Thank You for the help
Not true, you can mess with the system .nib files if you have root access
