I would prefer it to automatically show the All Programs menu from the start.
AFAIK, that's not possible. I disable the recently opened programs and then pin the few I frequently use to the start menu. I don't think there is anyway to get rid of that section completely. I rarely use the "All Programs" flyout anyways, since the search works so well. Just hit start button, and start typing the program you want. Way faster than navigating the menus.
