Remarks

Use the Remove method to remove the specified menu item from the collection. All items that follow that menu item are then moved up to fill in the vacant position. The indexes of the moved items are also updated.

Note

The MenuItemCollection object can contain null values, as well as duplicate MenuItem objects.

As an alternative, you can remove a menu item from a specific index in the collection by using the RemoveAt method. You can also remove all menu items from the collection by using the Clear method.
