   I don't think that advice given was quite correct. The addition of the menu is not a "misfeature" of Bioconductor packages, but rather an intentional act, I appreciate points of view differ, but there are times when you might choose slightly less pejorative language.

As for the question, it seems to me to be entirely an R question, if someone wants to know how to remove a menu item from the windows version, that seems to be a pretty general question about manipulating R, and has nothing to do with any specific package.
