# Windows – How to remove extra start item from boot menu

bootlaptopwindowswindows 7

I bought a laptop recently. While Windows 7 was installing, the battery died. So I plugged in the charger and re-installed Windows 7 Home Basic from the start. After completion of the procedure I now have 2 Windows folders in my C:\ drive, so I deleted the old Windows folder.

The problem is, while booting time it shows two Windows 7 options, although I already deleted the old Windows folder.

How can I remove old Windows 7 option from my boot?

#### Best Answer

You can manage your boot sequence and order in msconfig.

Just run msconfig.exe, then go to the boot tab and you can delete extra one, note that you can't delete current one:
