To clear the list of available OS you can follow these ways, that are not mutually excluded - you can use them all together:

Remove old/unused kernels
To find out the kernel you're using at the present moment you can use next command:

uname -r
Then go to Synaptic and remove packages of unused concrete kernels. Their names will look like this:
linux-image-<version>-generic, for instance linux-image-2.6.35-23-generic.
Package named linux-image-generic better leave installed.

Disable Linux recovery (for Grub)
Uncomment the following line in /etc/default/grub (need root privileges):

GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_RECOVERY="true"Then update Grub:

sudo update-grub2
Uninstall memtest
Remove package named memtest86+:

sudo apt-get remove memtest86+

I installed a little Utility called Grub Customizer. It lets you hide some of the entries (lines) in the Grub menu. It does other things as well. Here is the link:
