    Is there a way to massively remove all pinned apps in Win 8 Start Menu

    Hi guys. I've recently needed to disable Windows 8 Start Menu due to the reason for laziness and that I wouldn't go unpinning each program one by one, after I installed the Office suite and K-Lite Codec Pack, the start menu was flooded by all the programs!

    Any ideas? Thanks
