In the K-Menu (please don't say "Start" :-D).

The K-Menu is configured in the Panel KCM.  To access it directly, right click
the Panel and select: "Configure Panel".  The options for the K-Menu are on the:
"Menu" tab.

You can remove the most used applications by setting the spin box at the bottom
to "0".

For Bookmarks, check it in the "Optional Sub Menus" list box.

Same for "Recent Documents.

You can *add* items under "Actions" by adding a 'desktop' file (or modifying an
existing one) in: "$KDEDIR/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus".

I don't think that this is going to work.  You *can* add individual links to the
K-Menu, but you need a URL 'desktop' file for each one.

The start of KDE is not delayed while stuff in your: "Autostart" folder loads. 
But the KDEInit stuff has to run first.

In the Control Center under: Appearance & Themes"
