You can only add predefined menu items, you cant add custom folders.

That sucks, there must be a way, rooted deep within the registery, some tiny digit that has to be altered enableing you to add things to the navigation pane

After some looking, it appears epurple is right. Otherwise, I'd check out the customization part of the site. The guys over there know how to do stuff I never even dreamed of before.

Hello Jwest,

If you like, this will show you how to pin a folder to the left white side (Pin to area) of the Start Menu instead.

Hope this helps,

Hello jwest.





It's no help, just a by-gone fact; this was possible in Vista, I used to 'play' around with it but with the addition of Library's that function has been lost.
