How to backup and restore items pinned to Start Menu
I want to be able to backup, and to quickly restore, the items I have pinned to the Start Menu after I restore an image to my c: drive, but it's escaping me how to do it.
Windows stores the shortcuts here:
C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu", but merely pasting shortcuts there doesn't make them appear in the Start Menu.
I know the favorites in this registry key is involved:
but what do the other things there do? I don't want to restore the whole key when all I need is favorites and also restoring the other things in the key might do something I don't want.
What's the best way to handle backing up and restoring the items pinned to my Start Menu?
