German term or phrase:angesprochene Menüpersonalisierung
What is the meaning of this word in the following context?
Im Register Optionen des Dialogs Anpassen können Sie auf Wunsch die angesprochene Menüpersonalisierung auch ausschalten.
Explanation: This is a feature that changes the available options as a function of the frequency of use:
A menu where the most commonly used items are shown in preference to those not used at all. Sometimes these options are placed nearer the top of the list, as well. For example with a list of fonts, the user's last few font selections are located at the top.
In the Start menu of Windows XP, for example, the icons displayed reflect the programs you use routinely, while rarely used programs will not be displayed at all.
I think you can leave off "angesprochene" since "the aforementioned" sounds quite pedantic in this context.
